Below are the webinar speakers:
- Christian Hoymann (Ericsson) received his diploma and doctoral degree in electrical engineering from RWTH Aachen University in 2002 and 2008, respectively. Since 2007 he has worked at Ericsson Research. As a principal researcher, he drives the 3GPP LTE evolution as well as next generation radio access, in both research and standardization. He is currently head of Ericsson’s 3GPP RAN delegation.
- Krister Landernäs (ABB) joined ABB Corporate research in 2006 and has more than 10 years’ experience of working with applied research. He is a principal scientist in the area of wireless communication and has worked in and lead numerous research projects. In addition, Krister has also been active in standardization and was a working member of the Wireless HART standardization. He is currently technology manager for the H2020-ICT19 project 5G-SMART and responsible for a 5G Lab collaboration with Ericsson.
The vision of the 5G-SMART project (www.5gsmart.eu) is to empower Europe’s manufacturing sector with 5G solutions by integrating 5G in the manufacturing ecosystem, resulting in an accelerated digital transformation. This is done within the project by demonstrating and validating 5G in real-world factory setups, exploring the roles of mobile network operators and new business models as well as developing new 5G features targeting the manufacturing sector. 5G-SMART lead by Ericsson brings together a strong consortium of partners involved in every aspect of the manufacturing ecosystem.
