Soliton Systems and 5G Hub Collaborate to Demonstrate Remote Control of Race Car

Soliton Systems and 5G Hub | May 13, 2021

Soliton Systems, a leading provider of ultra-low latency streaming solutions over cellular networks, has revealed an almost unbelievable demonstration of remote control of a race car over 5G.

Soliton Systems, in collaboration with VodafoneZiggo and Ericsson Telecommunication, will demonstrate a remotely powered race car as part of the 5G Hub initiative to collectively highlight futuristic applications. It will be managed by a video live stream and remotely powered by 5G.

Soliton Systems Europe's Managing Director, Go Ito, says "We want to show something amazing with the 5G Hub, something that will demonstrate the dependability and capabilities of our ultra-low latency units for live streaming, combined with the power of 5G. 'What could highlight our competencies better than remotely controlling a high-speed race car?' we thought. Even a few milliseconds of video delay or loss may be catastrophic."

Soliton's advanced encoding technology, along with its stable RASCOW2 transmission protocol, uses several networks simultaneously for improved connectivity and redundancy, enabling what was previously the domain of science fiction films to become a reality. Remote driving, remote heavy machinery operation, remote drone control, and remote surgery could all become common.

According to Ericsson Solution Architect Edwin Dijkstra: "Soliton makes a significant contribution to the 5G Hub ecosystem. Our collaboration enables us to collectively demonstrate futuristic applications with low latency. The Hub aims to be a breeding ground for emerging technology, which we are accomplishing with our ambitious remote driving car demonstration."

The 5G Hub, located on High Tech Campus Eindhoven, includes a research facility, training facilities, and a demo studio with 5G and IoT capabilities, letting people explore and co-create emerging technology over 5G.

Vodafone and Oracle Collaborate to Speed Up Technology Modernization

Vodafone | June 22, 2022

In order to modernize the operator's European IT infrastructure and hasten its shift to the cloud, Oracle and Vodafone, the largest pan-European and African technological communications firm, established a strategic alliance. A major portion of Vodafone's systems will be updated and moved to OCI Dedicated Region, a fully managed cloud region that integrates all of Oracle's public cloud services into Vodafone's own network and data centers, as part of the multi-year arrangement. As a result, in addition to updating its tens of thousands of Oracle databases, Vodafone will be able to support and extend its mission-critical OSS and BSS services, such as CRM and order management, on a dedicated cloud platform. Vodafone will be able to develop new cloud-based applications more quickly thanks to the deployment, and by utilizing its geographic reach, it will be able to simultaneously launch them in a number of markets. In Vodafone's primary data centers, which oversee its European IT and network operations, Oracle will implement OCI Dedicated Region. As a result, Vodafone will be able to more easily meet the latency and performance requirements of these applications by deploying public cloud services inside of its own network and data centers. In addition, this will allow the operator to modernize, manage, and automate its critical systems using new technologies like autonomous services. "As Vodafone focuses on growth, data is key to how we evolve our business, build new capabilities and innovate to meet the needs of our customers. Our collaboration with Oracle supports our vision of becoming a technology communications company. The agreement enables Oracle to bring its entire portfolio of cloud services directly into Vodafone data centers. This includes the same architecture, software, services and control plane used in OCI public cloud. The flexibility offered by OCI enables us to build a robust, secure, and extensible cloud platform in our own data centers, while also providing the operational agility and scalability required to support the growth and diversification of our business." Scott Petty, Chief Digital & IT Officer, Vodafone The collaboration backs Vodafone's multi-year commitment to streamline and update the IT infrastructure that underpins its mission-critical systems into a common, on-premises, open-standard platform ready to support and scale next-generation digital services. Additionally, it will assist Vodafone in achieving its Tech 2025 objectives, which include speeding up the time it takes to market new services, delivering standout client experiences through always-on services, and cutting operating costs through automation. "Now more than ever, telecom companies need to quickly adopt new technologies to deliver new innovative products at speed while continuing to meet evolving regulatory requirements. Our partnership with Vodafone is based on achieving this balance, providing a cloud platform that enables Vodafone to modernize and consolidate its existing infrastructure while also building a foundation for a digital future. We are looking forward to partnering with one of the telecom sector's digital trailblazers as we help shape the next generation of communication services and business models," said Jonathan Tikochinsky, executive vice president, global strategic clients, Oracle.

The new Qualtrics Japan offices, which cover over 19,500 square feet in the Shin-Marunouchi Building in front of Tokyo Station, are designed to support a productive hybrid work paradigm for the company's expanding staff in Japan. It is one of Qualtrics' first new offices since the pandemic, with customized spaces, technology, and processes for in-office and remote staff to promote enhanced collaboration and preferred modes of working. "Japan is a key market for Qualtrics globally, and these latest developments reinforce our long-term commitment to the country, expanding the services, support, and expertise offered. In these uncertain times, experience management is more important than ever and Qualtrics gives Japanese organizations the ultimate advantage by helping them build deeper, personal relationships at scale to drive meaningful business outcomes," said Satoru Kumashiro, Country Manager for Qualtrics in Japan. Qualtrics has established the Ukrainian Refugee Support Platform in collaboration with SAP to help link refugees from Ukraine with providers in Japan who can assist them before, during, and after their stay in the country.
