Kagan: Huawei 5G technology powers railway terminal in Europe

Posted on


It has been roughly three years since 5G started its rollout around the globe. Now, AI, Chatbot technology and cloud computing are being commercially applied to this wireless world in different industries. For example, Huawei 5G technology is behind the East-West Gate (EWG) railway terminal project in Hungary. This represents the first time 5G and AI have been used in the European railway industry.

Huawei recently conducted a field trip to Hungary to showcase this digital transformation and the innovation practices of themselves and their partners.

Also, Huawei and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization or UNIDO jointly announced the establishment of the AI Industry and Manufacturing Alliance.

They showed how 5G and AI helps build safer, more efficient and smarter railway terminals, which improves productivity and brings this established industry into the new century.

They pointed to benefits like increased productivity, energy conservation, fewer faults, how 5G creates social value by improving the work environment and providing skilled jobs to young workers and more.

They showed how this kind of digital transformation will help not only Hungary, but other European countries as well.

Pulling the camera back, we can see how wireless is becoming a core building block for the future for every country and every industry around the world. This technology represents the foundation of the new economy.

5G and AI lets other industries both modernize and transform for the future. These core technologies are enabling new ideas and new thinking to enter the marketplace.

Yes, Huawei 5G technology is powering a railway terminal in Europe. The East-West Gate (EWG) railway terminal in Hungary is the first in Europe to use 5G and AI to improve efficiency and safety.

The EWG terminal is a major freight hub for the region, handling up to 1.2 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) of cargo per year. Huawei’s 5G technology is being used to power a variety of applications at the terminal, including:

  • Remote-controlled container cranes: The cranes are equipped with high-resolution cameras and 5G connectivity, which allows them to be controlled remotely from a control room. This reduces the need for workers to be on the ground, which improves safety and efficiency.
  • Real-time tracking of containers: The 5G network is also being used to track containers in real time. This helps to ensure that containers are not lost or delayed, and it also helps to improve inventory management.
  • Automated guided vehicles (AGVs): The 5G network is also being used to power AGVs, which are self-driving vehicles that transport containers around the terminal. This helps to improve efficiency and reduce the need for manual labor.

The use of 5G and AI at the EWG terminal is a major step forward for the European railway industry. It is a clear demonstration of how 5G can be used to improve efficiency, safety, and productivity.

Here are some of the benefits of using Huawei 5G technology at the EWG terminal:

  • Increased efficiency: The remote-controlled cranes and AGVs have helped to improve efficiency at the terminal by reducing the need for manual labor.
  • Improved safety: The use of high-resolution cameras and 5G connectivity has helped to improve safety at the terminal by reducing the risk of accidents.
  • Reduced costs: The use of 5G and AI has helped to reduce costs at the terminal by improving efficiency and safety.

The use of Huawei 5G technology at the EWG terminal is a sign of the future of the European railway industry. As 5G technology continues to develop, it is likely that we will see even more innovative applications of 5G in the railway industry in the years to come

In recent years, we have witnessed how 5G and wireless is transforming industry after industry like healthcare, automated driving, retail, travel, airlines, hotels and so much more.

And this EWG railway project is just one example of many on how 5G wireless and AI can transform an industry.

This is a brand-new opportunity for the larger railroad industry, and in fact every other industry as well.

You see, 5G and AI are not only transforming the rail industry, but they will make it more efficient and more effective. The same thing applies to other industries, both for their commercial customers and individual travelers.

Over time, things have changed. Yesterday, in the landline world we called a place and asked for a person. Today, we call the person, wherever they are, regardless of location.

We have completely inverted the entire communications experience. And we are still in the very early stages of this transformational revolution.

This is the revolution that Huawei sees happening around the world. And that is the enormous growth opportunity they see ahead of them.

In fact, this same growth opportunity and challenge is there for every other competitor in the wireless industry and every other industry as well.

5G and AI are major growth opportunity for wireless industry

That means smartphones, tablets, 5G networks, and so many other exciting new technologies bring new ways to do business, communicate, track everything and empower growth.

And the marketplace continues to expand. Yesterday, we only had one wireless device. One connection to the network.

Today, things are very different. Today, whether for personal use or business use, we all carry many different devices including smartphones, tablets, earphones, computers, medical devices, scanners, inventory control and countless others both for consumers and business.

This represents multiple connections to the network for every customer, on both the business side and the consumer side. All these must be continually managed, controlled and synchronized.

As 5G and Artificial Intelligence continues to impact and change the world, this represents an enormous growth opportunity for wireless companies worldwide.
