TMC adds high-tech industry knowledge to 5G HUB
TMC has joined the 5G HUB since this month. TMC and 5G HUB consortium partners Brainport Development, High Tech Campus, Ericsson and VodafoneZiggo have signed a collaboration agreement to that end. The cooperating parties investigate and test the possibilities of 5G technology. They also stimulate the innovative possibilities of the network.
TMC offers extra knowledge in the field of the high-tech and telecom industry; in the Brainport region and beyond. With its diverse areas of expertise in the high-tech industry, the Eindhoven-based high-tech consultancy company will add domain knowledge in the areas of software, mechatronics, cloud and artificial intelligence. "We are pleased with the cooperation with TMC to further shape the relationship with the high-tech sector. TMC knows this industry well and can give us valuable feedback on the desired 5G use cases to co-create, as well as actual integration of those cases at end customers," says Stefan Krijnen, Business Development 5G & IoT at Ericsson.

At the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, a physical location has been set up which partners of the 5G HUB can use. Here a commercial live 5G network is present with which tests are done, based on Dynamic Spectrum Sharing as well as the famous 3.5Ghz band. A lot is already known about the network itself, but we can learn a lot together about practical applications within the high-tech and beyond. "Internet connectivity is not new to us. The fast 5G offers new wireless and low latency capabilities. We combine our knowledge of the high-tech industry with cloud technology and 5G expertise. This allows us to assist our customers in this technological revolution," says Ton van den Berg, Business Development Manager at TMC.
The common goals are achieved by sharing knowledge through events and knowledge sessions in the 5G HUB. In addition, we are working on 5G use cases and proof-of-concepts. An example case the 5G HUB is working on, is the Connected Ambulance project. In this project Catharina Hospital, GGD Zuidoost and Philips explore the hospital without borders. Another example is the collaboration with Sentors, in which container recognition software in logistics applications, in combination with machine learning, augmented reality and 5G for multiple segments is worked out.

“Collaboration with parties such as TMC is very important for the 5G HUB,” says Stefan Krijnen. “We will exchange knowledge between the partners, and at the same time make this knowledge available to the wider ecosystem. It is crucial for all parties involved to understand where the needs and opportunities lie in relation to the 5G network and services, so that added value can be created for all. In order to achieve this, we will, among other things, organize several gatherings with the objective to co-create actual 5G uses cases.”
