Paris, March 16, 2021 – Capgemini Group has continued to implement its “Intelligent Industry” strategy with the opening of two labs to enable industry experimentation and deployment of 5G and Edge technologies. Located in Paris and Mumbai, each of these 5G Labs is designed to help organizations across every industry to pivot their business to be ready to take advantage of  the 5G and Edge revolution, driving their data-driven transformation towards Intelligent Industry.

They integrate the latest networking, cloud and edge computing technologies with cutting edge 5G connectivity, and an agile and modular application environment.
