Hannover Messe

At the world’s largest industrial trade fair for industrial engineering and innovation, the trend for 2019 is clear: The digitalization of entire industrial ecosystems has a much bigger impact on the economy than any industrial revolution before. With the increasing need for industry sectors and players to transform accordingly, Hannover Messe is now the world’s hotspot for Industry 4.0 and driving industrial readiness.

Still today, fixed networks dominate in factories and restrict the efficiency of manufacturing with inflexible production lines or unreliable device mobility. A wired industry connectivity foundation restricts the value of the Internet of things (IoT), smart operations and ultimately limiting the potential of Industry 4.0. With existing mobile communication technologies like LTE and the game changing capabilities of 5G, manufacturers can already access the seamless factory of the future.


  • Massive monitoring systematically protects from errors or accidents.
  • Wireless production lines enable faster configurations and redesign.
  • Stable mobility promotes autonomous vehicles and interconnect workflows, while low latencies support collaborative robots and enable real-time control of remote activities, just to name a few examples.
