Zyter, Inc., a leading digital health and IoT-enablement platform, announced today that it has collaborated with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. to support the demonstration of 5G private networks by providing network management services, a user interface/dashboard, and three initial production-ready applications that include autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), LiDAR-based analytics and AI-based cameras.
5G private networks offer significant advantages over today’s public 5G and Wi-Fi networks. To fully support digital transformation efforts, modern businesses and organizations need a higher-bandwidth, lower-latency network that can potentially support thousands of devices and data intensive applications. Advanced network management capabilities, such as allocating bandwidth to different devices or customizing security protocols are also necessary. Current Wi-Fi and 5G public networks offer limited flexibility in these areas. Qualcomm Technologies, Zyter and other ecosystem members are solving these challenges through the demonstration of 5G private networks powered by Qualcomm® FSM 5G RAN Platforms.
In addition to providing network management and a consolidated dashboard to display application and device data, Zyter is also making three production-ready applications available that include:
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)– Equipped with sensors and cameras, AMRs use AI and machine learning to autonomously move goods inside a defined space such as a factory or warehouse.
LiDAR-Based Analytics– Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) cameras can be used to detect the movement of people and goods in a defined space, which is rendered on a 3D map viewed on Zyter's dashboard.
AI-Based Cameras–This application supports 4K video streams originating from eight cameras provided by Qualcomm Technologies’ device ecosystem members as well as data analysis.
“Applications like LiDAR-based analytics require high bandwidth, low latency networks that can potentially support thousands of devices, render images in 3D, or enable autonomous mobile robots to react in milliseconds. The combination of Qualcomm Technologies’ platforms for 5G private networks with Zyter’s leading-edge applications offer a world of new possibilities for organizations that want more performance, ownership and control.”
