Five steps to 5G
The new 5G mobile communications technology offers enormous potential for production with low latencies and high data rates: processes can be continuously monitored and reported and process sequences can be adaptively designed in real time. The intelligent interaction of the 5G network with local edge-cloud systems enables scalable implementation of end-to-end real-time applications - from the sensor to the cloud.
The Fraunhofer IPT tests with the almost one square kilometer long 5G research infrastructure, the 5G-Industry Campus Europe in Aachen, a total of eight application scenarios - from 5G sensor technology for monitoring and controlling highly complex manufacturing processes to mobile robotics and logistics to cross-location production chains.
We are pleased to support you and give you recommendations for action so that you can benefit from the potential of 5G. In five modules, we show you how 5G technology can be used to make the transition to digitalization in production a success and what potential and challenges the implementation of 5G holds.
