Focus Washington recently sat down with Douglas C. Smith, President and CEO, Ericsson Federal Inc. In our studios, Mr. Smith shared his thoughts on the military’s increasing need for broadband communication solutions on and off the battlefield. As conflicts and emergencies continue to emerge around the globe and here at home, Ericsson Federal Inc. is staying on the forefront of cutting edge communication technology. However, as Mr. Smith points out, there is a major discrepancy between the luxuries used in private industry and what is being deployed on the battlefield. Congress has been slow to act, and our service men and women are paying the price.
Doug Smith is President and CEO of Ericsson Federal Inc. (EFI). He is driving the adoption of Ericssons solutions into U.S. federal, state and local government agencies that are demanding the same broadband applications and communications capabilities as commercial markets and working with EFI customers to leverage Ericssons worldwide commercial leadership and massive research and development investment to achieve mission success.
