Huawei Wireless X Labs announces Digital Sky Initiative to enable the low airspace digitised economy

By News Aggregator

By Zenobia Hegde

Huawei Wireless X Labs announced the “Digital Sky Initiative” during the eighth Global Mobile Broadband Forum (Global MBBF). The purpose is to spur development of drone applications and enable the low airspace digitised economy via enhanced low airspace network coverage.

The burgeoning drone industry has been one of the most coveted technology topics for many years. Today, drones are playing a critical role in a diverse set of fields such as transportation, agriculture, infrastructure, rescue and relief, and entertainment.

The birth of the Internet once brought computers to a new development stage. Likewise, connecting drones to networks is a pivotal step in unleashing their application potential. As the industry thrives, point-to-point communication between drones and remote-control platforms can no longer satisfy diverse demands. Innovative applications urgently require the connection among drones and the communication between drones and users. Drones that are connected to mobile communication networks can fly a better route, work more efficiently, and realise more rational airspace usage to deliver greater economic benefits.

“More and more activities that traditionally take place on the ground are now happening in the air,” remarked Zhou Yuefeng, CMO of Huawei’s Wireless Network Product Line. “Flying taxis for personal transportation will soon be a reality. The combination of drones and cellular networks will redefine the airspace, transforming the way we travel, shop, and create.

However, all current base stations are designed to serve humans and objects on the ground. Low airspace drones are supported by reflected signals and side lobe coverage. As a result, drones presently face severe signal interference challenges. The current network can only support a limited number of drone applications where aircraft fly below 120 m.” Network construction is the first step towards application innovation.

The digital sky initiative aims to provide 300 m low airspace network coverage, and create an advanced test environment for drone applications. The initiative will also support non-line-of-sight (NLOS) flight control verification and large volume data transmission to enable the low airspace digitised economy,” Zhou explained.

The digital sky initiative consists of three steps. Step one (2017 and 2018) seeks to set up connected drone application demo sites and promotes standardisation of cellular-network-based management. Step two (2019 and 2020) requires field tests and aims to achieve small-scale commercial use (deployment in over five countries). Step three (2020 onwards) is designed to bring low airspace digital networks into commercial use, and provide network coverage for at least 30% of low airspace.

Huawei Wireless X Labs has also set up a Digital Sky Special Interest Group, gathering governments, operators, drone vendors, industry organisations, and other customers. In October 2017, the world’s first Digital Sky Hub was founded in Shanghai. It aims to encourage joint efforts to set up drone application demo sites. In 2018, hubs will be set up in Europe, Canada, Korea, and other locations around the world.

Guests at the MBBF watched the live video sent back by the drones. Commercial 4.5G networks can now support NLOS flight control, data transmission, and flight. The new generation of 5G networks featuring ultra-large bandwidth, extremely-low […]

ThingWorx Asset Advisor for service follows PTC’s launch of the ThingWorx Asset Advisor app for manufacturing this past June at LiveWorx®17 and continues PTC’s commitment to helping industrial companies simplify their digital transformation efforts.

As industrial companies focus on improving efficiency and reducing downtime of their operations, being able to connect and monitor assets to capture critical alerts in real-time is key to an effective connected service strategy. PTC has a long history of enabling customers to connect assets and remotely monitor, diagnose, and resolve service issues.

Customers adopting a connected service strategy helped PTC’s IoT business outpace the market growth rate of 30 to 40 percent in fiscal year 2017. Companies like Elekta, Diebold, Sysmex, and McKinley Elevator are improving first-time fix rates 30 percent more than industry averages; mean time to repair by 6X; and equipment uptime by 20 percent, by being able to remotely monitor and service connected assets.

The ThingWorx Asset Advisor app enables customers to accelerate the time to value by providing them with an even easier and faster path to connected service capabilities.

“The capabilities enabled through ThingWorx technology will help us deliver the machine uptime required by our customers in production environments,” said Antonio Lopez, vice president, global customer services, 3D Systems.

“Connected Service is a key use case for digital transformation by asset owners and operators. In fact, IDC believes that by 2020, 50% of global OEMs with connected service offerings will have incorporated augmented service execution and/or remote management, thus improving service margins by up to 30%. Using an IoT platform to enable this capability is a critical ingredient to success,” said Heather Ashton, research manager, Service Innovation and Connected Product Strategies, IDC.
