Ericsson’s Hall 2 stand at MWC and Vodafone’s 5G Lab in Madrid are hosting an exciting demonstration of the capabilities of 5G networks through an augmented reality-based game called HADO techno-sport. HADO involves players on opposing teams using virtual energy balls and shields on a real-world court. The game will be played between players located in Madrid and Barcelona, enabled by the high-performance connectivity between Vodafone’s 5G network in Madrid and Ericsson’s 5G network based in its MWC stand in Barcelona.
The HADO techno-sport is just one of the demonstrations at Ericsson’s stand, designed to showcase the key ingredients in 5G monetization, including 5G Standalone, Network Slicing, and Exposure. These elements unlock a new realm of monetization possibilities for Communication Service Providers. The combination of 5G Standalone with Network Slicing provides performance and assurance, while Exposure of both the Network and Services opens up the network to different ecosystems, such as gaming providers.
The collaboration between Ericsson and Vodafone reinforces their dedication to exploring and promoting various avenues and ideas for 5G monetization, which began with the inauguration of Vodafone 5G Lab in 2021 at the operator’s headquarters in Madrid. By leveraging the power of 5G networks, both brands are committed to driving innovation and offering new and exciting experiences to their customers.
