The advent of 5G globally is set to bring big changes to the world of manufacturing. With low latency and high bandwidth, 5G can support the realisation of industry 4.0 and allow manufacturers to make significant shifts to production and adopt advanced manufacturing technologies, such as automation, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). 5G will make the smart factory possible and bring a new era of manufacturing, improving speed, accuracy, and safety.
To take advantage of the full potential of 5G, manufacturers need to improve their existing infrastructure and start laying the foundations now.
In this paper, we'll cover the key steps that manufacturers can take in order to improve their application infrastructure and prepare for 5G.
