Connectivity will play an important role in factory automation and Industry 4.0. Secure transport of data in a timely manner is one of the key requirements on industrial communication technology. Time sensitive networking (TSN), an IEEE Ethernet standard, is a promising enabler for satisfying that requirement, as is the 5G mobile technology, standardized by 3GPP. Our experts foresee that interworking of 5G and TSN will enable holistic communications for industrial automation. Why 5G makes sense in an industrial environment 5G technology can reduce costs relating to cabling infrastructure, support mobile units like autonomous carts or moving AGVs, and increasing flexibility in industrial applications. In manufacturing, there is an increasing demand for custom made products, which drives a trend towards more flexible production sites. DHRUVIN PATEL READ MORE
