The future of industrial manufacturing is Industry 4.0 with the smart factory and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In order to make production lines and intralogistics even more flexible, autonomous and efficient, appropriate conditions in communication and comprehensive connectivity are needed. The 5G communication standard opens up important perspectives here.
Due to very low latency times, digital communication takes place almost in real time. Data transmission rates increase up to 20 GBit/s with a possible device density of up to one million end devices per square kilometer.
What counts most for industry is that 5G will facilitate sophisticated machine-to-machine (M2M) communications in the age of Industry 4.0.
By setting up campus networks with edge computing with and without a connection to the public mobile network, for example, the highest data security requirements can also be met.
And unlike previous generations, representatives of industry were also directly involved in the development of the 5G standards. The advantage of this is that practical requirements for future applications were taken into account right from the start.
