Ericsson and Vodafone developed the support service to ensure a reliable 5G private network.
Ericsson and Vodafone launched a new service for private 5G networks using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) at the Foxconn factory in Komárom, Hungary.
Foxconn relies on 5G-based test cars, on which newly manufactured PCs are tested. To ensure that the private network connecting these test cars is as reliable as possible and doesn’t suffer any outages, Vodafone and Ericsson have developed a custom-built Service Continuity.
Service Continuity for private networks can preemptively predict if something might result in a degradation of performance. Corrective actions can then be taken by Vodafone locally together with Ericsson’s centralized team to avert such an occurrence, ensuring uptimes that are better than in traditional telecom networks.
