About the presentation
5G goes beyond the expansion of broadband capabilities of mobile networks and provides advanced wireless connectivity, private networks, reliable networks with ultra-low latency, built-in privacy, security, ultra-high bandwidth, and 3GPP to provide the highest-level of support for massive Internet of Things (IoT) communications and larger devices such as automated mobile robots (AMR) and guided vehicles (AGV) with positioning accuracy and energy efficiency. Our investigation along with the 5G-ACIA initiative proves that 5G will be the steppingstone for Industrial 4.0 digital modernization of the manufacturing and industrial networks. It’ll enable enterprises to launch new technologies rapidly. 5G also unifies a range of low to high capability devices (i.e., sensors) to heavy machinery which today run on multiple different radio and wired technologies. Verizon shares its experiences and insights how 5G will soon enable state-of-the-art industrial applications with AR/VR, local processing, automated object detection, and motion control through 5G private networks, edge computing, efficient radio and spectrum planning for the right set of industrial applications, and management of the 5G networks.
