Capgemini, a French IT consulting firm, has deployed the 5G Industry Connect solution offered by Ericsson with the motive of accelerating the deployment of 5G solutions in India. The solution was deployed at Capgemini’s Mumbai lab. With 5G revolutionising connectivity as we know it, Capgemini’s 5G lab for industries are designed to enable organisations across sectors to pivot and test their businesses towards the intelligent industry. Adopting 5G would help organisations in service automation, autonomous devices and various other use cases depending on the nature of the business.
Details on Ericsson’s 5G Industry Connect Solution
Ericsson Industry connect is a network product in a plug and play model which would come pre-packaged and pre-integrated. The solution is suitable for industries that require a fully private, on-premise deployment of a 5G network for limited coverage areas. The 5G Industry Connect solution would be the best use in segments of an organisation like warehousing and manufacturing. These segments are closed and confined and thus can reap the benefits of the solution. The 5G lab in which this solution is deployed will enable organisations from different industry verticals to test out 5G use cases that can be applied to their industries. These industries include but are not limited to – Healthcare, Safety and Manufacturing.
