Ericsson today announced the inauguration of the Ericsson Studio, India located in Gurugram.  The Ericsson Studio was inaugurated on site by Ms. Aruna Sundararajan, Secretary, Department of Telecommunications (DOT), Govt. of India and His Excellency, Mr. Klas Molin, Ambassador of Sweden to India. Ericsson Studios world over house innovations in mobile technologies and futuristic use-cases on 5G and IoT. Visitors at the Experience Studio can interact with subject experts and see how evolving technology ecosystems will drive the transformation of businesses and societies.

Ericsson recently also set up a 5G Center of Excellence and Innovation Lab at IIT Delhi. The initiative is designed to fast-track 5G deployments in the country by bringing together telecom ecosystems, academia, industry and start-ups

Key technology showcase at Ericsson Studio India include:-

5G Connected Drones: Drones are increasingly being used for city surveillance, emergency response, patrol and inspections to improve operational efficiency & increase safety. Existing drone solutions connect using local radio links with a limited range of operation. There is a huge potential in connecting drones using 5G cellular networks.

Connected Urban Transport: Cities represent an ecosystem of residents, traffic, road infrastructure, vehicles, bikes, fleet owners, public transport, logistics providers, neighbouring municipalities, just to name a few. This ecosystem is complex, in the sense that there is a lot of fragmentation. The Connected Urban Transport solution is designed to overcome this fragmentation, by monitoring and optimizing the available assets in cities. With a central dashboard overview of all connected assets that unites insights with actions, cities can solve their biggest traffic issues.

Internet of Skills: Internet of Skills refers to the ability of using communication networks that convey not only images and sound, but the sense of touch, combined with virtual reality technologies. Ericsson Research’s live demonstration is the next level of remote communication in healthcare sector. It showcases the ability to examine remote patients and to transfer these skills through virtual environment and haptic feedback over the network.

Mixed Reality Mining: Mixed Reality Mining demo displays the possibilities and future concepts on the AR and VR which can be adapted for a mining use case. It offers users a chance to experience what could be done with great connectivity, i.e. 5G, precise positioning, and augmented, mixed and virtual reality (AR/MR/VR) in a mining context, with the primary aim to support the interplay between human mine workers and automated systems.
