Consulting, digital transformation, technology and engineering services firm Capgemini has opened two 5G labs in Paris and Mumbai to enable industry experimentation and deployment of 5G- and edge technologies.

 

Each of the labs bid to help organisations across every industry to ‘pivot’ their business to be ready to take advantage of the 5G and edge revolution.

 

Network capabilities

 

According to Capgemini, they also complement the 5G lab for telecommunications companies, enterprises and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) which opened in December 2020 in Portugal, focused on the development of network capabilities and solutions.

 

The multidisciplinary team of experts at the labs will accompany organisations in the exploration of the latest use cases; experiencing new perspectives on how 5G is transforming their industry; and in helping them to build, monetise, and strategise what 5G brings next for their business. Services include strategy, ideation and planning, use case design and development, and ecosystem orchestration and integration.

 

The labs will draw on an innovation ecosystem of partners to experience all the new possibilities offered to organisations and help build their end-to-end solutions. Capgemini claims they integrate the latest networking, cloud- and edge computing technologies with cutting-edge 5G connectivity, and an agile and modular application environment.

“By embracing the 5G digital revolution, organisations will be able to take advantage of the increasing volume of data and derive real-time actionable insights”

With an ecosystem of partners (both telecom and technology driven) and focus on end-to-end solutions for industries, Capgemini’s 5G experts have developed four dedicated areas of specialty, based on industry requirements and proven use cases:

  • smart cities: for the public sector (including transport, health, education); it covers services provided to large samples of population. Examples of use cases: public transport infotainment; immersive learning; crowd management; and telemedicine
  • smart utilities: for the energy and chemicals sectors; it covers processes, logistics and operations. Examples of use cases: remote monitoring of sites; mission-critical process control; energy efficiency; and sustainability
  • smart factory: for the manufacturing and automotive sector; it covers production activities carried out in factories and warehouses. Examples of use cases: augmented remote assistance; autonomous devices in warehouse and assembly lines; computer vision based quality assurance; and safety and surveillance
  • smart retail: for the retail, consumer goods and luxury goods sector; it covers activities that enhance the personalisation of services to end consumers. Examples of use cases: immersive shopping experience; and purchase automation via smart carts.

“5G brings a step-change in connectivity and automation to all industries and opens new perspectives and possibilities for business. “By embracing the 5G digital revolution, organisations will be able to take advantage of the increasing volume of data and derive real-time actionable insights,” said Pierre Fortier, head of 5G at Capgemini Invent.

 

“Our 5G labs in Paris and Mumbai are designed to accompany organisations in their transformation journey towards Intelligent Industry, onboarding them in the 5G ecosystem to explore all innovation possibilities and helping them to build and monetise customised end-to end solutions for their business.”
