Ericsson to build smart IoT microgrid in US

WASHINGTON, May 23, 2017

US-based Landmark Dividend, a leading real estate and infrastructure firm, has picked Ericsson to provide its Zero Site communications platform and communications infrastructure at sites across North America.

Ericsson will deploy its Zero Site solution, cloud, core, backhaul and Internet of Things (IoT) software solutions, bringing innovative 4G, 5G and IoT use cases into industrial grid management.

Project deployment will begin immediately with Ericsson Zero Site, a multi-application pole solution jointly developed with Philips Lighting. Zero Site will enable Landmark to densify its sites, generate rental revenue through site leasing and offer high-speed broadband across the United States and Canada.

Ericsson will add its cloud, core and IoT software solutions to build and support a Landmark network with enterprise and energy-management applications.

Tim Brazy, chief executive officer of Landmark Dividend, said: “As data consumption continues to grow exponentially and the widespread adoption of the IoT unfolds, expanding and densifying existing network infrastructure will be critical to wireless service providers. We are very excited to partner with Ericsson, a global leader and innovator of the IoT and Smart City platforms, and we look forward to providing customers with high-value solutions through our microgrid ecosystem and the Ericsson ZeroSite offering.”

Eric Boudriau, head of Industry and Society, Market Area North America, Ericsson, said: “This contract is an excellent example of how industrialized IoT use cases between utilities and telcos open up new business models and unleash new opportunities in a growing renewable energy market. It is fully aligned with Ericsson’s strategy and expansion of business into a new industrial segment while using existing telecom and IoT assets for the betterment of society through a focus on sustainability.” – TradeArabia News Service
