Wireless communications can support use cases like reconfigurable machinery, remote asset monitoring, and even worker support technologies like augmented reality and virtual reality. Concerns about reliability, latency, and security have slowed adoption. 5G promises to change that. Designed to deliver massively parallel machine-to-machine communications with millisecond latencies and ultrahigh reliabilities, 5G is poised to have a major impact in the industrial space. It operates at higher frequencies, leading to smaller towers. Facilities can use this characteristic to deploy private plant-level 5G networks that offer the kind of increased security necessary for industrial applications.

In this webinar, we will review the state of the 5G rollout, and its implications for the industrial sphere, current and future. Attendees will learn:

  • The basics of 5G
  • The status of the rollout
  • Key 5G use cases for manufacturing and industry
  • How to get started with 5G
