Tech Peek | 5G & Manufacturing Technology
5G mobile phone networks make all the headlines — who wouldn’t like to download a two-hour movie in 10 seconds — but some of the first “killer applications” for 5G will be in manufacturing. The inherent nature of the factory – a controlled environment – addresses 5G’s biggest shortcomings while promising a decent return on a comparatively limited investment. In fact, the factory of the future has been waiting for 5G to call. Industry stands on the cusp of implementing what experts call “massive machine-type communications” with billions of connections. 5G will act as the catalyst. Here are seven reasons why the technology will transform manufacturing.
