Investment in infrastructure (IoT) and in new networks (Sigfox, 5G, etc.) underlines the company’s digital breakthrough and undergoing profound changes.

New digital uses require providing users with a network where the signal is strong and continuous. To meet this need, operators are investing massively in 4G all across France, and currently cover more than 80% of the population in France. The network must also support new uses in terms of data volume, the definition of a 5G network should respond both to problems of overload and speed issues. The first global 5G test during the Seoul Olympic Games in 2018 should pave the way for other experiments.

New uses linked to the Internet of Things (IoT) use alternative networks such as Sigfox, Lora, TSN (industrial IoT). In particular, the logistics industry should be transformed by the Internet of Things.

Lastly, the fourth industrial revolution is under way and companies are gradually going digital: interconnection of machines, new robotics, virtual technologies, 3D printing, etc. Companies are faced with many challenges: improving industrial operations and better managing time-to-market and their supply chain.
