Ericsson Experience Zones
At CES, Ericsson will display five key experience zones attendees to journey through, allowing them to experience "Living Life in the Networked Society."
Visitors to the Mobile Life zone will explore the connected vehicle, telematics and a personalized package delivery based on location and authentication. The street area will showcase small cell solutions for an urban environment, LTE Broadcast, VoLTE-based communications and interactive billboard advertising.
Just as mobility changed the idea that a phone number was a place, the Working Life zone will show how users experience their new work place as the office, home, café or even a park bench. Productivity is no longer a desk in an office, but is now any connected place. Solutions in this zone will include WebRTC collaboration, cloud tools, VoLTE-based communication capabilities, M2M management systems and in-building CPE and managed network solutions.
The Game Life zone will replicate a basketball arena with bleachers, large video screens and its own basketball court. The solutions in this zone will include VoLTE-based communications capabilities, cloud based services for food, tickets upgrades and merchandise, WiFi-LTE handover solutions, advertising solutions and key infrastructure devices for high capacity coverage.
Technology brings new opportunities to stay connected. Connect and communicate with your home - appliances, devices and tools - to enrich your personal life. Personalized content - music, video, books, gaming, TV, social media - that goes with you wherever you are, delivered with the best quality. The Home Life zone will showcase the next-generation TV experience, a virtual home gateway, VoLTE collaboration tools, cloud gaming, media management and wellness solutions.
The Imagine Life zone will focus on visionary solutions that will soon impact how we use
communications platforms and how we will interact with them. The solutions will include interactive media, touch based communications, window based solutions, and concepts to use existing communications systems to augment weather forecasting.
