Service innovation for Hitachi

In this video, AJ Van Bochoven, Head of Strategic Innovation, speaks to Mobile World Live to unveil a new project to deliver AI-powered service innovation for Hitachi. 

Developed in collaboration with Cambridge Consultants, Hitachi’s new Service Innovation Platform helps their customers benefit from the huge potential of digital transformation.  

Using novel algorithms, Hitachi gains insights from industrial assets to shape transformational new service concepts, including predictive maintenance for manufacturing and route optimization for shipping. 

Experience the latest in wireless communications


Over the years, we have led the creation of major wireless technologies and developed service platforms that have transformed our client’s businesses. Here are a few examples...   

High performance communications

Custom 5G platforms and ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC) will revolutionize enterprise markets, bringing connectivity to business-critical tasks that drive unprecedented value.

Our experience covers virtually every aspect of radio and communications development from developing the world's most compact wireless system for an automated supermarket warehouse to the ground-to-air radio system controlling over 50% of the world’s air traffic.   

Service innovation 

Effective service design defines successful digital transformation. This is enabled by 5G and AI, which bring services to life through an ability to learn, anticipate and make decisions.

Our mix of commercial insight and technical rigor helps clients explore and determine which services will be most valuable, while our rapid development capability takes full ‘products with services’ to market. 

Connected devices 

From smart homes and smart cities, to logistics and medical technology, the IoT is constantly growing. 

We have decades of experience developing connected devices and systems for both consumer and industrial markets. This gives us an unrivaled understanding of the complex trade-offs between size, power, cost and performance necessary to create breakthrough products and services.

The real power of 5G 

The real power of 5G lies in how it can enable the digital transformation of the business world. However, this requires more than just a technology shift. Telecom operators will need to develop new service-enablement platforms and respond to the unique needs of diverse industries.

This paper outlines the unique connectivity requirements of modern enterprises and how 5G can accelerate digital transformation. 

Ofcom: use of ai in online content moderation 

A key theme to the debate about harmful internet material is how automated approaches driven by AI can enhance content moderation. These approaches may have implications for our future use, and attitudes towards, online communication.

By examining online use and attitudes, our report commissioned by the UK Regulatory Authority (Ofcom) helps widen the debate on the risks we all face.      

Chiplets: the path to iot diversity 

In this paper, we explore why chiplets offer a path towards increased IoT diversity. Unlike traditional monolithic approaches, chiplet architectures disaggregate functions into modular building blocks that can be manufactured at very low cost.

OEMs can expect to unlock a host of new, low-cost IoT product opportunities, while semiconductor companies have a viable path to develop optimal offerings for a wider variety of applications, at the same time as keeping the portfolio smaller and reducing costs and timescales.
