Ultra-high-speed, high bandwidth wireless connectivity that provides dense indoor coverage is set to transform factories. Our connected factory partner Ericsson shared how new 5G mobile networks will support real-time, smart manufacturing and provide the foundation for full automation.

The reliability, security and low latency of high bandwidth 5G networks will enable manufacturers to add thousands of sensors to devices across the shop floor and transfer data in real-time between connected machines, robots and software systems. The flexibility and performance of 5G wireless connectivity will make it easier to automate everything from predictive maintenance to data analysis in the cloud. And companies can use mobile services to get started today.
