Lucerne, Switzerland – 12.04.2021: CONNECT44 Group announced today that it has executed the required agreement to participate in the Ericsson Industry Connect partner program, delivering value by planning, monitoring, and securing networks with more than 20 years of expertise.

The Ericsson Industry 4.0 Partner program is a vehicle for solution providers who offer their technologies as a part of the Industry 4.0 ecosystem. This program sets the standard for recognizing a partner’s investment in the tools and processes necessary to provide a high return on investment for industrial customers using cellular connectivity as the foundation for their Industry 4.0 initiatives.

Purpose-built for industrial environments, Ericsson dedicated networks are private wireless cellular networks that provide secure, reliable coverage, high device density, and predictable latency. Leveraging these connectivity solutions, enterprises can gain full visibility of machines, processes, and data, using 4G/LTE now with a clear path to 5G.

“Ericsson is working with system integrators like CONNECT44 Group to nurture the ecosystem and ensure seamless and secure Industry 4.0 deployments,” said Thomas Noren, Head of Dedicated Networks at Ericsson. “We are pleased to see the growth of consultative practices that focus on the connectivity that underpins digitalization for Industry 4.0.”
