Ericsson to display 5G role in industry at Hannover fair

HANNOVER, May 25, 2022

Ericsson will demonstrate Industry 4.0 applications from automated guided vehicles to 3D camera sensors and predictive maintenance to experience the flexibility, versatility, and security enabled by 5G at Hannover Messe 2022.

Ericsson is on-site at the event running from May 30 to June 2 with demonstrations, a panel session, and a digital presence.

Thomas Norén, Head of Dedicated Networks at Ericsson, said: “Having successful industrial end-to-end solutions is a team effort, and we are proud to be joined by our Industry 4.0 partners, including device and software vendors, system integrators, and hyperscale cloud providers at Hannover Messe. Together with partners, our demos highlight the tools needed for a rapidly evolving manufacturing environment where production needs to be faster, more secure and more flexible.”

Cradlepoint, a part of the Ericsson, is the market leader for cloud-based routers and adapters in 4G LTE and 5G networks. Together with Ericsson, Cradlepoint will showcase the power of wireless WAN solutions for enterprises and the functionality and advantages of SIM management integration with Ericsson IoT Accelerator.

Manufacturers often use hundreds of routers and adapters that are connected to either the public or a private mobile network via 4G or 5G. Cradlepoint NetCloud Manager with SIM management helps IT managers configure and administer these devices saving time and money for enterprises.

Anton Larsson, Lead Product Manager at Kollmorgen, said: “Together with Ericsson, we will demonstrate our world-leading control systems for automated guided vehicles, including fleet management system, software tools for commissioning and navigation capabilities. Our solution has resulted in greater efficiency and short return-on-investment at manufacturing sites and in warehouses for more than 50 years.”

Ericsson experts will demonstrate real-life applications, including how to:

•    Gain complete visibility and control of all IoT devices throughout their entire life cycle with Ericsson’s connectivity management platform no matter where in the world they are located—through the IoT Accelerator. Cradlepoint NetCloud integrates with IoT Accelerator, providing a single pane of glass to simplify wireless WAN operations for their customers

•    Future-proof 5G site construction sustainably, all while saving on capital and operating expenses, through intelligent use of energy from renewable sources, as seen in Deutsche Telekom and Ericsson’s successful trial. This paves the way for significant advances in supplying renewable energy for mobile sites

•    Reduce costly downtime of critical infrastructure through predictive maintenance powered by Industrial IoT, as seen in a demo with ifm, Dell, and Software AG

•    Connect your workforce to be more efficient and effective in their tasks while protecting them from hazards through Zebra’s Workforce Connect hardware and software, powered by Ericsson Private 5G

•    Leverage automated guided vehicles, powered by Ericsson Private 5G, to increase worker safety and improve efficiency demonstrated with Kollmorgen and T-Systems. – TradeArabia News Service
