Bangkok--8 Feb--AIS

AIS together with representatives of the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society (MDES) and industrial partners recently organized a site visit to Kasetsart University, Sriracha Campus, in preparation for the 5G testbed - IoT program.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Weerawat Kiattipongthaworn, AIS Chief Corporate Officer, said: "AIS is honored and proud to engage in this project to support the government and education sectors. This exhibition demonstrates the future technologies such as Internet of Things and 5G, enabling students, undergraduates, developers and industry partners as well as those involved in digital technology, to take part in experiments and testing. It will eventually lead to the creation of new opportunities to promote the country's digital economy as part of the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) initiative."

Mr. Weerawat added that in preparing the 5G Testbed Laboratory, AIS has collaborated with Nokia to demonstrate 5G use cases and IoT devices from the AIS IoT Alliance Program (AIAP). This will allow those in the education, business, and industrial sectors to perceive the benefits of 5G and inspire them to create new innovations with the use of these new technologies.

The demonstrations included in the laboratory are:
1. Technology showing the lower latency and superior speed of 5G network through games and applications
  • 5G Ultra-Low Latency - Corporate Cloud Robots. The demonstration shows two robots trying to balance a ball in the middle of a beam. The time robot used to achieve the balance is significantly shorter with 5G network in comparison with 4G
-5G Collaborative Car Factory: Effect of different latency levels is shown when the user tries to virtually install a car engine in a car factory environment
-5G AR Digital Rubik's Cube and 5G VR Football Game demonstrate the faster responsiveness on 5G network through both a football game and a Rubik's Cube puzzle

2. Security orchestration and automation by Nokia Security Management Center demonstrates cognitive security orchestration with constant dynamic monitoring and cognitive analytics with anomaly-based malware detection to defend modern attacks such as IoT attacks.

3. Nokia AVA technology for 5G digital design: AI and Machine Learning are deployed to help identify the location of a mobile phone user in 3D Geolocation format. This will lead to designing a 5G digital system that meets the need of 5G mobile phone users by allowing the fastest and most effective service on the 5G network.

4. IoT devices for developers under the AIAP-AIS IoT Alliance Program including NB IoT Shield and NB-XBEE are available for students and entrepreneurs to study and create IoT solutions. In addition, there is a showcase of practical IoT solutions like Smart Water Level Monitoring that provides effective industrial water management.

"5G is the technology that will help improve the capability of industries and drive the country forward effectively through 3 key features: high speed, capability of ubiquitous connectivity for IoT and fast and consistent network response. 5G is also critical for innovation development, to ensure that the overall ecosystem is ready at the right time to enable new business models and new use cases. AIS and its partners will fully support the government sector in preparing for the new technologies in the country," Mr. Weerawat said.
