L&T Technology Services Limited, a global pure-play engineering services company, announced it has been selected by Thales to offer 5G driven next-gen connectivity solutions. The solution includes collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., allowing it to provide cutting edge solutions for the benefit of urban railway operators.
Thales endeavors to establish the ‘Internet of Smart Metros’ which will enable metros and urban railway networks to ‘talk’ to each other and ultimately transform the passenger experience with comfortable, seamless journeys and new services. The need for increased efficiency in rail network operations, coupled with the growing demand for advanced transportation infrastructure, has contributed to the evolution of engineering and R&D services in the railroad sector.
The solution leverages LTTS’ chip-to-cloud expertise, as well as the company’s technology portfolio of connected IoT devices and 5G small cells based on Qualcomm Technologies, to develop and deploy solutions for the Global 5G Private Network Industry. These digital offerings are aimed at accelerating transformation across a range of industries including railway networks, aerospace, and automotive.
LTTS’ end-to-end 5G capabilities enable global enterprises with faster deployment, cutting-edge applications, and well-rounded managed services. This in turn facilitates creation of virtual private networks for 5G.
New LTTS 5G Center of Excellence
With the support of Qualcomm Technologies’ 5G technologies that enable intelligent cloud/edge convergence, LTTS has established a Centre of Excellence (CoE) for 5G in Santa Clara, California. This CoE showcases a plethora of critical 5G driven applications, and its Lab-as-a-service offerings include MEC use cases development, end-to-end service validation, POC development showcasing and system integration, as well as validation and verification services for customers in key verticals.
The solution will include collaboration from Qualcomm Technologies, which will provide pre-integrated Private Network solutions based on the Qualcomm FSM100 5G RAN Platform for Small Cells, and in the future, add the Qualcomm Edgewise Suite – a premium RAN automation and management solution. LTTS will facilitate end-to-end system integration, design, and implementation of use cases, engineering consulting, and deployment services along with edge-to-cloud orchestration.
