The ‘5G Solutions Center’ is presenting use cases covering different industrial market segments, such as: Augmented Assistance to improve safety and performance, reduce downtime, minimize errors; Smart Surveillance to reinforce security and safety; Smart Health to increase speed of diagnostic, contributing to saving lives, improve user experience and offer on-remote access to specialists with remote consultation from any location.
The San Francisco center complements Capgemini’s 5G Labs located in Europe (in Paris, France; and in Fundão, Portugal) and in India (Mumbai), which are designed to help organisations across every industry pivot their business to be ready to take advantage of the 5G and Edge revolution, enabling data-driven transformation to achieve Intelligent Industry.
Arleen Cauchi, Director Partner Co-Innovation at Verizon Business Group said: “At Verizon we are engaged in providing early access to state-of-the-art technology and believe in the value of an ecosystem of partners to explore how 5G can disrupt and transform nearly every industry. The success of the Verizon Business Connected Healthcare Center in the UK, built in collaboration with Visionable, Capgemini and Juniper, demonstrates the benefits of such co-innovation hubs to ideate and co-create new models and 5G applications that will benefit customers and society.
