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

Unlocking the value of Industry 4.0 - why and how connectivity drives future profitability and growth

Everybody talks about the value of Industry 4.0 but are the numbers ever quantified? ABI Research was commissioned by Ericsson to conduct an assessment of smart manufacturing and smart warehousing operations to do just that. How will status quo manufacturers and warehouse operators compete with early adopters of cellular connected Industry 4.0 tools?

One key finding of the report was that the move to private cellular has the potential to boost gross margin by 5% to 13% for factory and warehouse operations that fully embrace Industry 4.0.
