EQUANS' latest news


Accelerate the transformation of your production sites thanks to 5G with Equans

The deployment of the latest mobile technology will accelerate the transition to Industry 4.0. It offers an alternative to current 4G LTE or Wi-Fi, with interesting prospects in terms of bandwidth, latency, and service quality, and therefore new possibilities for use. 5G will thus facilitate and accelerate the potential of real-time man-to-machine/machine-to-machine communication, robotics, connected sensors, digital models and digital twins, IoT (Internet of Things) and telecontrol as well as hypervision. Combined, these processes create a promising prospect: the smart factory based on a network of interconnected sensors that allows for automated and optimised control of a robotic production line. Factory 4.0 will not only be more efficient. Its greater connectivity will allow for optimisation of energy consumption and flow management, and therefore its overall environmental impact. What's more, a 5G network inherently consumes much less power than older technology: up to 90% less than 4G, according to operators. Taking advantage of these benefits now means building a private 5G network on site. France’s Electronic Communications Regulatory Authority Arcep has authorised the testing of several 5G networks, and major industrial groups such as Arcelor Mittal have initiated experimental projects ("5G Steel"). As an integrator of Industry 4.0 solutions, Equans Digital can support future industrial sites with this new connectivity. Equans has solid expertise in telecoms equipment for companies and infrastructure: the group is a leader in Europe in the link between the physical, electrical and digital layers. As an "agnostic" solution integrator, Equans Digital can suggest relevant use cases exploiting new connectivity models via 5G thanks to its in-depth knowledge of industrial processes. With this in mind, the organisation is preparing to upgrade its Industry 4.0 Lab in Montargis (France) to include 5G. Equans is part of the Bouygues Group, which also has operator capacity through Bouygues Telecom, a key 5G player in France, with which Equans could combine forces. 

International Women's Day

Jérôme Stubler met with three female managers, Emmanuelle Brisemur, CEO Equans Transport (Equans France), Solène Cosnefroy, Urban Transport Activity Director (Equans France), and Lucie Montagne, Project Manager. The aim was to affirm the Group's ambition to promote gender diversity, to increase the attractiveness of our businesses and the number of women managers in the company, to understand their career paths and to learn from their views on issues such as the benefits of gender diversity, the broadening of profiles, the professional/personal balance, the importance of role models and sexist behavior.
