The Catalonian government has partnered with Juniper and Vodafone to fit its ambulances with 5G connectivity. The 5G-connected ambulance is one initiative it is taking to show how new mobile networks will affect important areas such as healthcare. The vehicles are using a 5G network with dedicated communication, which sees speeds of up to 5Gbps; provides lower latency for communications and sending data; and enables network slicing for urgent needs. A slice or dedicated network can be used just for medical emergencies and care in order to guarantee the service and the capacity to communicate.

Microsoft unveiled Hololens2, the next generation of its wearable holographic computer with an integrated suite of new mixed reality services, out-of-the-box apps for businesses and sensors with the capacity to perceive and predict. New design, new security, new Mixed Reality apps. This is a new phase of computing being defined now which is incubated in the enterprise first. It’s a shift from the past 10yrs of iPhone-driven mobile app experiences which were consumer-first. Microsoft is also working with partners, such as Trimble, which will incorporate its durable & rugged designs to Hololens2, which is a key requirement for front line workers & industrial environments. These mixed reality and perception tools will make it more practical for companies to adopt an entirely new wave of computing that bridges the digital and physical world. It’s only been made possible by recent advances in the intelligent cloud and the intelligent edge.

VMware is planning to exploit the mobile industry’s move to 5G to advance the conversation around network functions virtualisation (NFV) and telco clouds, seizing on the potential of the upcoming mobile network standard to do for operator networks what it has already done for the enterprise IT stack. In Hall 3, Stand 3M11, VMware & Dell Technologies showcased how they can build cloud-like infrastructures that create efficiency for mobile operators at the network level, and also give application agility so operators can roll out services with higher rapidity and efficacy.
