  • Ericsson partners with AgriBusiness Connect to pursue prospects for 5G applications in agriculture.
  • The partnership will leverage Ericsson’s 5G solutions, which offer high speed, low latency, and large real-time data handling capabilities in both public and private networks.

Communication technology company, Ericsson, partners with Australian not-for-profit organisation, AgriBusiness Connect, to create an industry for 5G applications in agriculture. Under this partnership, both parties will create value by utilising the high speed, low latency and large real-time data handling capabilities of Ericsson’s 5G solutions in public and private networks.

AgriBusiness Connect, formerly known as AgriFood Connect, is an agribusiness ecosystem which provides solutions – such as Industry 4.0 – 5.0, Net Zero, Renewable Energy, Traceability and Education and Training – for agri-businesses and their interconnected supply chains to resolve complex problems. The non-profit delivers programmes that speed up the development and adoption of technology. As partners, Ericsson and AgriBusiness Connect will target and train existing agribusiness workers and increase awareness of the prospects of 5G and the digitalisation of agriculture value chains.

Grant Statton, AgriBusiness Connect’s Chief Executive Officer, says: “Our partnership with Ericsson is another important step in our journey to drive innovation across the agribusiness-related ecosystem and ensure that science and technology translate to the real needs of industry. With our market standing, knowledge of the sector, and ecosystem of relationships, we are uniquely positioned to orchestrate end-to-end across the agribusiness value chain. This opens the door for Ericsson and AgriBusiness Connect to create tangible pathways to prove the difference 5G can make to business, decarbonisation, safety and creating new high-value skills within the agribusiness sector.”

Emilio Romeo, Head of Ericsson, Australia and New Zealand, says: “Australia can rightly be proud of its international reputation as a frontrunner in technology change adoption. In the case of [the] 5G rollout, Australia is among the global leaders. The outcome of this partnership between Ericsson and AgriBusiness Connect could see pioneering Enterprise 5G use case ideas with the potential to transform the agribusiness value chain around the world. Partnerships like this one, working alongside the Government’s digitalisation plans, are key to ensuring enterprise, industry, society and citizens benefit from 5G as soon possible.”
