Ericsson and Vodafone launch support service for 5G-factory in Hungary

By

Telecommunications company Ericsson and Vodafone have launched a service continuity for private networks aimed at improving manufacturing and industrial efficiency.

The solution is now being deployed by Vodafone’s enterprise customer, electronics manufacturer and technology solutions provider Foxconn in its factory in Komárom, Hungary.

Ericsson’s private networks are offering enterprises such as Foxconn a wireless connectivity that can transform the core of business-critical operations.

Ericsson said the solution can prevent network outages and reduces the risk of costly downtime by identifying and averting such as risks.

Based on artificial intelligence and machine learning, it can pre-emptively sense if something might result in a degradation of performance.

Corrective actions are then taken by Vodafone locally together with Ericsson’s centralised team to avert such an occurrence, ensuring uptimes that are better than in traditional telecom networks.

“Foxconn relies on non-fixed 5G-based test cars, on which newly manufactured PCs are tested before packaging at their plant in Hungary. To ensure that the private network connecting these test cars is as reliable as possible, Vodafone and Ericsson have jointly developed and deployed the custom-built service contunuity for private networks support and technical assistance for enterprises that ensures smooth network operations,” Ericsson said in a statement.

“We are very conscious of the trust placed by Foxconn in Vodafone and have worked jointly with Ericsson to create this unique technical assistance offering for enterprises to ensure that the operation of their private networks is free of unplanned interruptions,” said Vodafone business director Mátyás Dobó.

“We are constantly working with Vodafone to evolve the private networks space for enterprises, and this AI and ML-based support service is a testimony to that work. Added to this is the flexibility to change production setup without disruption, and to adapt to changing business needs,” said Ericsson business area networks head of strategy and portfolio management Nello Califano.
