  • Ericsson, T-Mobile Austria, and Stanley Black & Decker have come unitedly for a partnership on the Internet of Things (IoT).

  • An example of this partnership, Stanley Earth’s NADI Smart Solar Pump is live in India, helping farmers to step up productivity.

  • Ericsson’s Mobility Report, published in November, had foretold that global 5G subscriptions will exceed 2.6 billion within the next six years.

Stanley Black & Decker, a leading producer of industrial tools and household hardware, reportedly announced a new collaborative effort with T-Mobile Austria, a renowned mobile and fixed company in Austria, and Ericsson, a Swedish telecommunications company, to actively work for simplifying the worldwide deployment of Stanley’s connected services and equipment.


Ericsson is giving global connectivity outside of Austria via its IoT Accelerator, which bundles cellular IoT roaming in distinct markets, accompanying device management tools and a pipeline of certified IoT modules.


Ericsson said the trio is “simplifying and accelerating the global deployment” of Stanley Black & Decker’s connected equipment and services.


Accelerating digital transformation and sustainability is a critical outcome we can deliver by partnering with T-Mobile Austria and Stanley Black & Decker. Leveraging Ericsson IoT Accelerator, a dedicated IoT network, it is possible to promote sustainable agriculture and contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

NADI Smart Solar Pump: An Example of IoT for Good.

The on-going Stanley Earth’s farming project in India – the NADI Smart Solar Pump, is the live example of this collaboration. It enables farmers to step up productivity and lower costs while offering a more sustainable alternative to an inefficient power grid or diesel-dependent water pumps for irrigation. Going into details, the five-horsepower model can deliver 100,000 liters of water a day, enabling farmers to manage and maintain groundwater resources thoroughly and irrigate over 5 acres of land throughout the year for higher crop yields – all with the control from their mobile phone. With smart and connected irrigation, the farmers can adequately regulate groundwater resources and leverage the seasons to produce up to 3 crops a year, heading to added income.

 

Stanley Black & Decker demonstrates what an innovative company can achieve by combining its products with connectivity to have positive and sustainable impact productivity and income of farmers. As an operator, we are delighted to help them leverage the connectivity and coverage to meet the needs of the local market and their project.

Ericsson’s Mobility Report, published in November, had foretold that global 5G subscriptions will exceed 2.6 billion within the next six years. Ericsson also forecast that total mobile subscription, including to previous generation networks, will reach 8.9bn from 8bn over the next six years. Ericsson also forecast that total mobile subscription, including to previous generation networks, will reach 8.9bn from 8bn over the next six years. More than a quarter of the global subscriptions will be 5G by 2025, accounting for 29 percent of all mobile subscriptions at that time and approximately 45% of worldwide mobile data traffic.

A month earlier in October 2019, Ericsson had also announced its collaboration with NVIDIA, the leader in accelerated computing, on technologies that can allow communication service providers to build high-performing, efficient, and completely virtualized 5G radio access networks (RAN). These virtualized networks can enable the faster and more flexible introduction of new AI and IoT services.
