Hannover Messe 2020 goes digital

Physical events may now be a distant memory, but knowledge, innovation and community can still blossom online. Even though we cannot meet face-to-face, we can still share the value of mobile communications and how Ericsson is continuing to shape the industrial landscape. We stand behind Deutsche Messe and hope this digital platform will serve to inform and inspire our expanding ecosystem, until we meet again.

Ericsson insights on the value of mobile network connectivity for Industry 4.0

Smart Manufacturing and how to get started – The Implementation and ROI of Industry 4.0 use cases

Just released: According to a new report from ABI Research, deploying dedicated cellular-enabled Industry 4.0 solutions can enable new technological solutions and generate an operational cost savings return on investment (ROI) of 10 to 20x over 5 years. In aggregate, these solutions can generate 8.5% in operational cost savings, which equates to US$200 to US$600 per square meter per year for a factory or industrial site. Manufacturing executives need to understand why and how they need to develop the right connectivity strategies to unlock this value.
