Hello Nicolas, can you talk us through the Dome solution?
Dome is a 5G connectivity bubble that enables enterprises to easily deploy their own private 5G network. Dome is a sovereign software solution for which Obvios handles each component, ensuring development and integration by its team of experts in France. Dome can be installed on standard hardware configurations and covers a wide range of use cases. It is already deployed at several major customers, such as EDF, which is testing the maintenance of high-risk sites. We are also working on optimizing water distribution systems with the Lacroix group and on optimizing connectivity at SNCF’s large production and industrial maintenance sites.
What are the benefits of a private 5G network for end users?
As we know, 5G today allows a significant increase in throughput, connection with more objects, and a significant reduction in latency. 100% virtualized, cloud-native and secure, the Dome solution allows manufacturers to get all the advantages of 5G, regardless of the size of their site, the desired throughput or the number of users, in a fully private context. With 5G private networks, we imagine new industrial applications such as the piloting of mobile robots indoors and outdoors, the transmission of video streams from drones moving within a seaport or construction site, and assistance for operators in their maintenance tasks thanks to augmented reality on mobile terminals.
How does Dome differ from other solutions?
Choosing Dome as your private 5G network solution means choosing security for your data. Furthermore, Dome does not require proprietary hardware, which makes it much easier to install on the integrators’ side. Finally, as it is easy to deploy and operate, end-customer IT teams will have no trouble learning how to use Dome solution, so it does not require an internal telco specialist at the customer's site.
Can you explain the new baseline "antifragile private 5G"?
We want to express the strategic qualities of Dome in a strong, simple way. The concept of "antifragile", developed by the essayist Nassim Nicholas Taleb, speaks for itself: It evokes robustness, resilience and security. Our private 5G solution is truly designed to last and support our customers in all their uses, securely.
