Two years ago, Soliton Systems, a leading global technology company headquartered in Japan, entered a successful partnership with the 5G Hub at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven to demonstrate futuristic applications made possible by the emergence of 5G, together with VodafoneZiggo and Ericsson. Now, the company is further strengthening its footprint in Brabant.
The European headquarter is already located in Amsterdam and added this partnership in the Brabant region. Go Ito, Commercial Director of Soliton Systems Europe: “this region is very attractive to Soliton given its positioning as the technology hub of Europe (Brainport Eindhoven) and its close proximity to Amsterdam.”
One of Soliton's strengths is ultra-low latency video transmission, which, for example, typically affects the time it takes to transmit live video from a mobile camera to a command and control center. The encoder connects to a camera, compresses the video and streams over mobile networks. This traditionally takes a few seconds but with Soliton's solutions this can be reduced to less than a tenth of a second for long-distance live streaming.
The Brabant Development Agency (BOM), in collaboration with NFIA Japan, is currently supporting Soliton Systems by connecting and introducing them to relevant and interesting stakeholders in the region. Edwin Zonder, Senior Project Manager at BOM: “BOM has been fundamental in connecting Soliton to the most important global industries and organizations in the automotive ecosystem.”
The partnership and further development, upscaling and marketing of this key enabling technology of Soliton Systems is a great initiative that fits perfectly within the current focus at the Brabant Development Agency (BOM). The rise of 5G is seen as an enabler for a wide range of new initiatives, from vehicle control and improved road safety to IOT and robotics. It aims to challenge the status quo of how we live our daily lives and take innovation to another level. A great asset to our region, which will contribute to the strengthening of the AI and IT cluster in Brabant.
