HARMAN, Microsoft Partner to Drive 5G Innovations

HARMAN, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. focused on connected technologies for automotive, consumer, and enterprise markets, has announced that its Digital Transformation Solutions (DTS) business unit has entered into a collaboration with Microsoft that will enable HARMAN to integrate with Microsoft Azure private multi-access edge compute (PMEC).

The integration will further empower HARMAN to combine network functions, applications, and edge-optimized services to deliver a broad portfolio of high-performance, ultra-low latency solutions that address the modern business needs of enterprise customers. As a result, HARMAN can further accelerate digital transformation solutions with private 5G networks and smart connectivity for enterprises across several verticals.

“Advances in technologies like 5G yield significant opportunity to accelerate innovation across nearly every industry – from transportation and healthcare to manufacturing and education,” said David Owens, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Digital Transformation Solutions, HARMAN. “By bringing together HARMAN’s deep knowledge and experience in the communications domain with Azure private MEC, we can now offer enterprises a comprehensive solution.”

“Transportation hubs have been among the first entities to adopt emerging edge compute capabilities and private 5G connectivity to deliver innovative offerings that serve their operations teams, business customers, and travelers,” said Tad Brockway, corporate vice president Azure for Operators, Microsoft. “By using Microsoft’s portfolio of Azure services and HARMAN’s expertise in transforming enterprise infrastructures and workflows, any business can quickly scale-up new networks and deliver advanced applications that enable them to realize the same operational efficiencies.”

This collaboration has already successfully enabled digital transformation at one of the largest airports in the United States. Microsoft’s Azure private MEC combined with HARMAN’s expertise in applications and integration services have helped to transform the airport’s manual cargo handling process to one that is IoT-enabled and far more intelligent.

As a result, the airport saw tangible improvements to the efficiency, optimization, and general handling of its cargo tracking system – saving significant resources including operational costs.
