5G technologies to attain efficiency and productivity
There are two levels at which 5G will make a difference to the manufacturing industry. Firstly, there would be much faster data transfer due to lower latency, higher bandwidth and a higher number of devices connecting to a single cell. This will mean higher data speeds to the tune of at least 100 times compared to 4G. LAN and mobile data networks will converge. This might also result in lower investment requirements in their own data communication infrastructure by corporates.
Secondly, higher levels of industrial automation will exist through wireless mesh networks within a factory. These networks would have much higher reliability due to coordinated multi-point and time-sensitive transmission. This will result in micro-second level synchronization with a possibility of 99.9999 percent reliability. This benefit will be seen much later as private 5G coverage will increase and will become more prevalent in the industries.
