Ericsson Industry Connect
Operators of most manufacturing, logistics, and distribution plants want a communications solution that simplifies, not complicates.
That's why many are turning to Ericsson Industry Connect, a turnkey Industry 4.0 solution that solves the connectivity needs of the smart factory or warehouse with an unequalled level of ease.
To deliver high reliability, high device density, robust security and predictable latency, Ericsson Industry Connect network relies on LTE technology, the trusted technology used in cell phones around the world.
Easy to install and use
Installation and network setup are easy. Once setup is complete, you'll be up and running quickly, often within 24 hours
No handoffs between access points means no dead spots – just reliable connectivity throughout the factory. No kidding.
Industry Connect keeps all data on premises using built-in LTE security protocols to increase data security.
Built for Industry 4.0. Ready for 5G
Built on the Ericsson 5G-capable cellular platform, Ericsson Industry Connect not only enables Industry 4.0 today, but also readies your operations for 5G.
Improve the way your factory's connected devices connect
Smart factories and warehouses bring a new and complex set of requirements. As the number of remote-control and autonomous robots and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) on the factory floor increase, manufacturers are demanding:
- Reliability, so mobile solutions remain connected no matter where they are in the factory
- Density to accommodate many devices communicating within a small area
- Security to protect intellectual property from theft and prevent tampering
- Predictable latency for quick reaction times
Wireless, but not any wireless. Your own dedicated cellular network
The key to smart factories and warehouses is wireless connectivity that enables mobility for connected devices, agility in operations and an ever-increasing level of device density. Cellular technology wirelessly connects widespread assets and processes in real time, allowing plants to integrate workflows—by being able to locate moving assets and portable tools, for instance.
New wireless connections and services increase value, reduce waste and overcome the pain points of a fixed network. Which is why connectivity is the foundation of the smart factory.
