Going with wind, Ericsson has decided to extend its efforts in 5G radio research with the help of various programs to be conducted in 2017 in association with University of Campinas (UNICAMP) and University of São Paulo (USP).
Among many projects that it’s working on at the moment, one focuses on developing cyber-physical systems with UNICAMP and USP to investigate the user of sensors and create different autonomous communication channels for the highway authorities. If successfully executed, this project could automatically create weather systems, dispatch emergency services, develop self-driven cars, and monitor road conditions round the clock.

Ericsson and América Móvil are also working on MiMo (multiple-input multiple-output) in association with UFC. The primary objective of this research work is to enhance the overall capacity of the prevailing wireless communication system.
The techno-based research that both these companies are rolling out with the help of two leading universities, will primarily focus on different verticals such as education, health, agriculture and health. These are the most sought after industries in Brazil.
Along with 5G roll out, América Móvil And Ericsson will also focus on Internet of Things with the primary focus on low battery consumption applications like sensors that can be used in distant areas.
The senior management team of both the companies hope to complete the commercial work of this 5G test system in Brazil by 2020.
