Multiple IoT strategies have been explored and used to help in the automation and optimisation of manufacturing. Roll-out cost, capacity, and bandwidth have been the main limiting factors of IIoT.
Having been involved with key pre-production IIoT projects on the North American 5G network (pre-commercial), this presentation will highlight how the arrival of 5G will be the key enabler that will bring forth the promises of IIoT.
By sharing actual realisations, you will see that it can be done and it is being done. We’ll discuss how 5G will enable much lower implementation costs, better battery life (set and forget) for sensors, better capacity and band, and also allow for all AI to run closer to the edge (real-time handling).
