At the just concluded 2016 Mobile WorldCongress (MWC) held in Barcelona, Spain, Ericsson demonstrate how best to shape the Networked Society to turn great ideas into global realities.
Highlights of its showcase at the event that attracted mobile industry players included 5G radio prototypes, cellular Internet of things, IoT, and cloud RAN demonstrations as well as Telehaptic control, 5G cloud robotics, connected water and future of autonomous driving to demonstrate future technology.
Already, Ericsson’s experts presented a wide range of demonstrations, launches and seminars that showed how the technology firm is empowering people through technology, transforming industries to deliver more value, and advancing society through sustainable development. Accordingly, visitors at the Ericsson stand experienced hand on demonstrations on many issues including Networks, Transformative IT, Media, Industries and Networked Society areas.
Other highlights showcased at the event that brought together mobile industry players included:
*5G radio prototypes: Phase 2 of Ericsson’s award-winning 5G Radio Test Bed, which includes 5G radio prototypes set for operator field trials in 2016, will be running live and delivering industry-leading performance with advanced features such as Massive MIMO and beam tracking.
*5G for industries: Ericsson works closely with partners to develop 5G networks that meet the demands of industrial applications. The results of these collaborations, along with concepts and prototypes supporting the ICT transformation of the manufacturing and automotive industries, will be presented.
*Telehaptic control: visitors can try out a prototype system for semi-autonomous, remote flying of radio-controlled helicopters. By adding haptic feedback to video and audio, users can feel the helicopter moving and interacting with its environment. The demonstration is part of Ericsson’s ongoing research into industry transformation opportunities enabled by 5G networks.
