Industrial 5G

Industrial 5G networking technology will change the way smart factories will make decisions, manufacture products, and maintain plants with its strong focus on machine-type communication and the Internet of Things (IoT). But it will also co-exist with WiFi and other wireless solutions.

What is Industrial 5G?

One of the key differences between 5G and previous generations of cellular networks lies in 5G’s strong focus on machine-type communication and the Internet of Things (IoT). Industrial 5G supports communication with unprecedented reliability, very low latencies and the kind of massive IoT connectivity that will pave the way for the next era in industrial production. Read in this section how Industrial 5G and other wireless technologies are opening up completely new possibilities and fields of application for industrial automation and control networks.
