Putting these ideas into action, EPAM recently joined a TM Forum Catalyst alongside Telus, Verizon, Red Hat, Evita and CloudBlue to develop an award-winning technical blueprint for configuring and deploying innovative agriculture solutions.
The project leveraged 5G network slicing, mobile edge computing, robotics and AI/ML modelling tailored to three specific use cases: robotic harvesting, autonomous weeding and sensor-based irrigation.
The blueprint can be easily scaled and deployed by telcos, enabling expansion into the agriculture industry as a one-stop shop for smart agriculture solutions. This enables:
- New revenue and growth opportunities, like 5G monetization and B2B revenue streams
- Extended services with new business applications
