One year after the launch of the xG initiative, awarded €30 million by the French Government, b<>com is to stage the global launch of its private 5G solution for businesses, *Dome*, at the MWC in Barcelona at the beginning of March.
*Dome* is a technological solution that meets the many challenges of 5G in terms of security, the Internet of things, latency, saturation, and network flexibility. It is a great toolbox for creating highly flexible private networks that address any end-customer application whilst guaranteeing data security. This sovereign 5G solution is already attracting big name partners including Orange, Airbus, EDF, the Lacroix group and the SNCF.
b<>com CEO Bertrand Guilbaud said: “Our hybrid strategic positioning allows us to be both an explorer of multiple fields of innovation as well as a technological solution provider to the world’s leading software vendors and integrators.”
With *Dome*, b<>com offers a universal private 5G solution (independent of the equipment used) in the form of a sovereign software offering that guarantees control and security to manufacturers. This format facilitates the deployment and the handling of the solution by the IT teams of the companies while offering a great flexibility of application according to the use cases. The objective is to provide 5G solutions for different verticals: industry 4.0, critical infrastructure operators, healthcare and defense.
The *Dome* field tests address the following various use cases:
- Monitoring of hazardous sites (e.g. nuclear power plants),
- Optimization of connectivity on a large industrial site for production, maintenance etc.
- Increased productivity on production lines thanks to augmented technicians,
- Optimization and efficiency of critical infrastructure networks – including avoiding waste and increasing efficiency
From an integrator’s point of view, *Dome* is ideal because this software solution is compatible with any type of hardware, which greatly facilitates its implementation.
Guilbaud continued: “2022 will be an important year but, whilst challenges remain, we are hugely optimistic about the success of our *Dome* private 5G sovereign solution and what it can achieve, and proud to play a key role in the constitution of a European sovereign ecosystem on private 5G.”
