Bharti Airtel Limited (Airtel) and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), on Tuesday, announced the successful testing of innovative use cases from TCS’ Neural Manufacturing solutions suite on Airtel’s ultra-fast and low latency 5G network.
The IT giant has successfully tested two use cases, that are remote robotics operations and vision-based quality inspection, on Airtel’s 5G testbed. Through this demonstration, TCS has shown that how its’s Neural Manufacturing solutions and 5G technology can transform industrial operations, and significantly boost quality, productivity and safety.
“Airtel is spearheading 5G in India. The 5G ecosystem will open limitless possibilities for enterprises to enhance productivity and serve their customers even better with digitally enabled applications. We are delighted to work with TCS as our strategic technology partner to start testing real life 5G applications of the future. This also offers tremendous learnings across the value chain and lays a solid foundation for future application roadmap.”Randeep Sekhon, CTO – Bharti Airtel
As a part of its #5GforBusiness initiative, Airtel, in partnership with leading technology firms, is demonstrating a wide range of enterprise-grade use cases using high speed & low latency networks.
“We believe the future of manufacturing is neural, and have been making sustained investments in research, and innovation, and in building intellectual property. We will continue to build new, differentiated capabilities into TCS’ Neural Manufacturing suite of solutions, harnessing the power of machine vision, machine intelligence and 5G to reimagine and redefine the way smart factories operate. Our partnership with Airtel to deploy and validate these innovative use cases on their 5G network serves as a proof point of the transformative power of these technologies,”Susheel Vasudevan, Global Head of Manufacturing & Utilities at TCS
The Department of Telecommunications has allocated the 5G trial spectrum to Airtel for the purpose of technology validation. The demonstration was done at the network provider’s 5G Lab in Manesar (Gurgaon). TCS’ Neural Manufacturing suite of solutions helps customers from several domains, achieve an autonomous or lights-out factory vision.
