The Rollout Helps X Shore Achieve Its Goal of Becoming the Most Productive Boat Manufacturer in the World
Tele2 claimed that X Shore would use its 5G services to access remote, monitor, operate, and manage various manufacturing steps. The vendor's 4G/5G radio portfolio and dual-mode core technology will be integrated with the company's public 5G large network and Ericsson's personal 5G network remedy to offer more adaptable modular manufacturing and logistics for the boat producer. “Our goal is to ensure sustainable and efficient operations at all levels, from our working environment to production and product development, while reducing our environmental impact through the adoption of smart industry 4.0 solutions,” commented Elias Wästberg, head of industrialisation at X Shore Industries 1.
