Untangling Industrial IoT networking

Industrial IoT (IIoT) systems are rapidly growing larger, more distributed and gaining new capabilities. Similarly, the diversity of IoT applications will result in diversity in networking needs. Our Mobility Report forecasts 20 billion connected IoT devices by 2023, which will bring scale to the equation too. IIoT system designers and network engineers need to consider many different aspects when designing industrial networking systems. This includes the choice of networking technologies, that will lead to a successful network deployment.

5G Enabled Manufacturing

How can 5G be of help in making industries more efficient and flexible? This is what I together with a team at Ericsson, SKF and Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, worked on in a project called 5GEM, 5G Enabled Manufacturing. Now the follow-up project 5GEM II has just started, with Volvo Trucks and Siemens joining as new partners.

5G NR release 16 – start of the 5G Evolution

The finalization of the 3GPP release 15 in June this year was a major milestone in many respects. The first 5G New Radio (NR) specifications are complete and commercial deployments will be available by the end of this year. It is also the basis for the continuous evolution of 5G NR technology, spanning across multiple releases, to further improve performance and address new use cases. The first step of this evolution was recently taken when several 3GPP working groups met in Gothenburg, Sweden, to start the work on release 16.

5G NR: The Next Generation Wireless Access

OFDM, ultra-lean, mini-slots, beam-centric, …. these are just some of the many words and acronyms being used in conjunction with 5G and it is easy to get lost among all the terms and technology components. We believe our recently released book 5G NR: The Next Generation Wireless Access Technology, fills an important need for those interested in the recently released 5G NR standard. The book describes the standard in detail, both the technologies as such but also why specific technologies were decided to be included in the standard.

Cellular technologies for Industry 4.0 – Ericsson, Fraunhofer IPT and GF at IMTS

The Industrial Manufacturing Show takes place September 10-15 in Chicago. For 90 years, IMTS has been the premier manufacturing technology show in the northern hemisphere with 2000+ exhibitors and over 100 000 visitors. Ericsson will join Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IP and Georg Fischer Machining Solutions to present our joint collaboration on adaptive manufacturing, where production of engine components is optimized in real time.

This is the first time the 5G manufacturing application will be showcased on US soil.
