The 3GPP working groups CT3 and CT4 are focusing on interworking with external networks & policy and charging control, and the design and specification of protocols for HTTP-based APIs accessing network function services, respectively. The groups are among other things responsible for specification and development in the Circuit Switch & Packet Switch domains, exposure and provisioning of services inside the 3GPP network, and standardising the interface between control plane and user plane functions in 5G Core.

At Ericsson Research, we collaborate in global cross-organisational teams and have opportunities to learn and work with top industry researchers on the latest technologies! Ericsson celebrates diversity and inclusion together with flexibility and international mobility.
