New Report: The use of private cellular networks in manufacturing

We explore a recent study conducted IndustryWeek on behalf of Ericsson to understand the current use of private 5G cellular networks in manufacturing.

What it covers:

IndustryWeek and Ericsson surveyed over 100 individuals from manufacturing companies with annual revenues of $1 Billion or more to understand how manufacturers are considering or applying private 5G cellular networks within their infrastructures.  

What you’ll learn:

  • Manufacturers are investing in data networks with nearly half of respondents indicating data networks are a higher priority in comparison to other technologies.
  • Manufacturers are adopting 5G: Thirty-nine percent are currently incorporating private cellular networks within their infrastructures, and eight percent plan to add this investment in the next 12 to 24 months.
  • Manufacturers are benefitting significantly 5G networks with improved coverage, enhanced capabilities, increased speed, bolstered reliability and heightened mobility, understanding these advantages are ones to capitalize on and implement.
