CTO's editorial for latest article

The fourth industrial revolution – a.k.a. Industry 4.0 – aims to significantly improve the efficiency and flexibility of production processes through the use of automation and data exchange technologies. In this environment, all participants and components of the processes must be able to cooperate and communicate with each other seamlessly. 5G is a prime enabling technology to facilitate this transformation, by providing wireless connectivity in and around the factory based on a global standard with global economy of scale.

The latest Ericsson Technology Review article explains how 5G can be used effectively in the fully-connected factories of the future. It also explores how 5G can provide deterministic ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) to bring wireless connectivity to demanding industrial equipment, like industrial controllers and actuators. Coming 5G enhancements will provide additional value to industrial services such as precise indoor positioning, and time synchronization for industrial end devices.
