See Ericsson Enterprise Solutions showcase private network connectivity and use case solutions that are accelerating Industry 4.0 digital transformation. Discover how to make manufacturing smarter by connecting machines, people and data to increase efficiencies and reduce operating costs.

Explore our booth demos:

Connected workers are operators leveraging various digital technologies, applications, and tools, enabling seamless connectivity to both physical and virtual manufacturing environments, as well as each other. Beyond cell phones and tablets, connected workers use wearable devices to monitor location and biometrics. The integration of augmented and virtual reality further facilitates remote support, intricate training, and even remote control of equipment. Explore the benefits of private 5G cellular networks, connecting factory workers, optimizing labor resources, minimizing downtime, improving overall equipment effectiveness, enhancing safety and reducing labor costs.

Computer vision offers numerous advantages for the smart factory – from quality assurance to product identification to image analysis. It also plays a crucial role in identifying, counting, classifying, tracking and verifying products in the manufacturing process. This contributes to process improvements, enhanced productivity and compliance with regulations and safety standards. Explore how private 5G cellular networks enable high-definition video for assembly line monitoring and tracking while unleashing the potential of computer vision in your facility. Experience the resulting benefits, including increased productivity, cost reduction, improved product quality, and enhanced revenues.

Manufacturers encounter difficulties when understanding machine utilization and overall equipment effectiveness. Predictive maintenance addresses these challenges by leveraging sensor-collected data to pinpoint optimal maintenance times. Indeed, the various sensors that make predictive maintenance possible create increased data, visualization and analytics, necessitating a resilient and secure network. Learn how manufacturers can use predictive maintenance to reduce downtime, lower maintenance material costs, and optimize labor resources more efficiently using private cellular networks.

Inventory management tasks like cycle counting are time-consuming, unproductive and potentially hazardous with people lifted high in the air to count inventory. Automating these processes through the use of indoor flying drones can have notable business benefits. This innovative approach to inventory management not only ensures greater accuracy and timeliness but also enables businesses to adapt quickly to changing inventory demands, ultimately leading to cost savings and improved customer satisfaction. Learn how unmanned drones equipped with sensors can enhance inventory tracking processes while leveraging the high-speed connectivity and low latency of 5G networks to efficiently navigate indoor spaces, continuously scanning and updating inventory data in real-time.

Wireless communications play a crucial role in advancing smart factories and Industry 4.0. As manufacturers embark on their digital transformation journey, they may encounter limitations with legacy connectivity, prompting assessments of 5G technologies. Explore how Ericsson's dependable and secure private cellular networks deliver the power to make manufacturing smarter by connecting machines, people and data, increasing productivity, improving efficiency and gaining a competitive edge.
