Ericsson introduced a new concept of mobile Internet for four main market segments: massive internet stuff (massive internet stuff), broadband internet stuff (the Internet) for critical scenarios (critical internet stuff) and internet stuff for industrial automation (IoT industrial automation),
Interestingly, two of these four segments (broadband internet stuff and IoT for industrial automation) are new. Broadband Internet stuff adapts the capabilities of the Mobile Broadband Access (WLAN) technology to the needs of the Internet of things, ensures higher data rates and lower latency than is envisaged in massive Internet stuff scenarios. IoT technologies designed for industry automation will allow you to create advanced applications that meet the very high quality requirements for network connectivity.
As part of its concept of mobile Internet development, Ericsson also has improved functionality for mass-based Internet stuff, because the NB-IoT radius has expanded from standard 40 km to 100 km due to software upgrades. At the same time, no changes are required in the work of existing NB-IoT devices. According to the company, this opens up great opportunities for IoT links in rural areas and remote areas that are important for logistics, agriculture and environmental monitoring. Currently, Ericsson's experts have set up a 100-kilometer radius of NB-IoT in Telstra and DISH networks.
"Mobile Internet stuff, which began with the attempts of introducing Massive IoT, now goes beyond the ubiquitous introduction phase. Today, we provide our customers with answers to questions about what to expect in the future and how to get the maximum return on investment in 4G and 5G technologies within the existing network. In addition, we are introducing new advanced scenarios for the use of IoT technologies, which enable us to achieve qualitative development in different industries, "said Fredrik Jaydling, vice president and head of communications department at Ericsson.
New products for broadband Internet stuff, which are also featured today, include unmanned aviation detection and communication channel technologies, radio access network segmentation (SLID) solutions, enhanced Subscriber Group Handling (CRM) functionality, and a service-based solution to more Gigabit LTEs, which allows data transmission in the LTE network at a 2Gb / s delay of just 10 milliseconds. New solutions will support the development of various scenarios for the automotive industry, the management of unmanned aerial vehicles, expanded and virtual reality, enhanced bearings, smart manufacturing, and smart tools.
The concept presented by Ericsson describes how mobile internet stuff can go through the development of basic scenarios for using Massive IoT technologies such as asset tracking and smart counters, to more complex scenarios based on the use of broadband IoT technologies (infotainment automotive software, AR / VR, unmanned aerial vehicles and advanced load-bearing devices), IoT technology for critical scenarios (autonomous transport) and industrial automation (robotic interaction on production lines) s).
This Phased Approach will make it easier for operators to tailor mobile Internet solutions to existing and future scenarios by continually improving LTE networks as they are preparing to launch 5G. Thanks to the efficient use of the cross-section of the network, operators are able to provide support for all four segments within a single network, enabling them to optimize the use of existing assets and generate revenue through digitization of various industries.
Recall that, according to the Ericsson Mobility Report, the number of connections to mobile Internet items per year will grow by 27% and in 2024 it will reach 4.1 billion.
