5G for Smart Wireless Manufacturing – delivering value to smart and connected enterprises

Event   |  

Industry 4.0 is gaining adoption at the same time as 5G is about to ramp up. 5G technologies provide the network characteristics essential for manufacturing. Low latency and high reliability are needed to support critical applications. High bandwidth and connection density ensure ubiquitous connectivity.

These are requirements that manufacturers currently rely on for fixed-line networks. Mobile 5G technology will allow for higher flexibility, lower cost, and shorter lead times for factory floor production reconfiguration, layout changes, and alterations. With AR and VR already gaining growing momentum, 5G connectivity will open the floodgates of mass adoption, enabling the use of AR at full capacity. Ericsson and PTC collaboration enables wireless industrial sites, catering for full digitalization with rapid introduction of AR and other applications.
