Ericsson and Signify have announced a new light fixture solution which will be revealed at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2019.
This is the latest concept born from the successful relationship between Signify and Ericsson, who previously co-developed Lightpole Site Slim, the connected outdoor lighting pole small cell solution.
The new luminaire light fixture features an embedded Ericsson Radio Dot and will deliver not only light but also 5G connectivity inside buildings. The 5G Radio Dot is small and light enough to embed easily into Signify’s lighting systems. With this additional deployment option, it will now be easier to deliver 5G indoors.
Remco Lansbergen, Senior Director Global Strategic Alliances, at Signify, says: “It’s all about connectivity inside buildings. The bulk of internet traffic is there and corporate WiFi will not always be the preferred option.”
The embedded 5G Radio Dot will work with Signify’s Interact Office, benefiting from the innovative architecture of the Radio Dot System – with power and backhaul delivered through standard networking cables (CAT 6).
The new product offering will be on display at the Ericsson booth at MWC19 Shanghai.
