What is Ericsson Industry Connect?

Industry Connect enables smarter factories with smarter connectivity.

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 

Animation - Industry 4.0 challenges and value of Ericsson Industry Connect

Industry Connect addresses connectivity challenges with reliable, secure, wireless coverage.

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.
