Ericsson and RJio to develop 5G use cases

Ericsson and Reliance Jio Infocomm is jointly developing 5G use cases like connected car and VR-assisted driving using 5G

The use cases demoed at the event over the live 5G network in Navi Mumbai and in Delhi leveraged the gigabit speed and ultra-low latency capabilities of 5G to exemplify key benefits such as the remote operation of machines (robotic arms, vehicles) and possibilities enabled through virtual reality (VR).

Mathew Oommen, President, Reliance Jio said, “Jio is excited to work with our global partners on technologies and use cases that allow us to deliver affordable broadband for all and ensure that we leverage 5G to its full potential.”

Nunzio Mirtillo, Head of South East Asia, Oceania and India at Ericsson, said, “Our goal behind developing use cases with our partners is to develop tangible concepts that can be taken forward and implemented by industry. Today, we take a big step towards making 5G a reality in India by showing use cases that can find application in sectors such as mining, education, and healthcare.”

Ericsson and Jio together bring the 5G connected car use case to life. It demonstrates remote operation and control of a car that is connected over a live 5G network on 3.5 GHz band at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi. The use case was made accessible at the IMC for remote driving and showcasing assistance through 5G edge computing.

VR-assisted driving using 5G leverages slicing capabilities that allow deployment of application-specific, end-to-end requirements on throughput, latency, computation, security and reliability. This opens new business opportunities for operators through 5G.

The use case shows VR-assisted driving of a bus connected to a 5G network. In this demonstration, a camera mounted on the roof of a blackout car, streams over a live 5G network. The bus driver maneuvers the bus assisted by the live stream rendered on a 5G-connected VR headset. The live streaming was done over Ericsson’s 28 GHz 5G network in Navi Mumbai.
