China Mobile Ericsson partners with 5G disaster relief

The move follows successful testing of a mission-critical 5G partnership solution – called the 5G Full-Closed-Loop System for Integrated Natural Disaster Management – ​​in ten cities in the Lishui region of China.

Covering early warning analysis, natural disaster monitoring, command and dispatch, and post-disaster assessment, the solution has now been included in monitoring, early warning and prevention demonstration projects. major natural disasters from the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology. As a result, partners expect nationwide rollout to begin in the coming weeks.

The solution was developed and launched by the Lishui subsidiary of China Mobile Zhejiang Company Limited and Ericsson, along with several industry ecosystem partners under the leadership of the Lishui Municipal Emergency Management Bureau.

Ericsson and China Mobile provided key insights and support for core application development and validation by combining respective emergency communication practices, digital twin use cases and network slicing technologies while jointly creating 5G network connectivity.

The project was listed in the recent 5G in Verticals in China 2022 report released by the GSMA.

The solution was developed and tested in Lishui due to the region’s vulnerability to large-scale natural disasters and flash floods during the rainy season.

Several criteria have been identified for the solution to be addressed, including: accurate forecasting of disasters; occurrence of visible disaster; shared data silos; Coordinated Emergency Command; and rapid evacuation.

Jsolution technology

The solution combines the benefits of coverage, high bandwidth, low latency and reliability of advanced 5G network connectivity, edge computing, digital twins and 5G private network slicing.

It integrates:

  • Built-in 5G sky-to-ground surveillance network: solves problems of data integration and sharing, deployment, coverage, construction and operational costs by ensuring rapid network deployment
  • Intelligent 5G multi-hazard early warning model based on: Accelerates data processing and improves accuracy for rapid data transmission, consolidated processing, and accurate identification of multiple risks
  • Decision support based on digital cartographic models: A 3D model of disaster sites built using 5G drones. Dynamic renderings of disasters duplicate and analyze the scope of impact and create emergency escape routes
  • Portable 5G sites and communication vehicles for on-site communication: Vehicles provide 5G network coverage at disaster relief sites – with portable radios with built-in 5G antenna weighing less than 10 kg as well as satellite and microwave equipment
  • Evaluation of the simulated model based on remote sensing imagery: assesses the magnitude of the disaster, physical damage and direct economic loss through the combined results of on-site monitoring results and the simulated assessment model.
