An Industry Processes Approach To Successful 5G Deployment

Industrial manufacturing environments are dynamic with constant movement, and wired networking has typically been preferred due to reliability and lack of interference or blocking. When correctly configured, a private 5G network can exceed Ethernet KPIs and bring huge advantages in terms of flexibility and additional services. However, engineering smart 5G capable devices and communication systems for industrial applications comes with unique challenges. Poor coverage or positioning, premature failure of equipment or problems discovered late in the development cycle or installation process all have the potential to cost millions of dollars to rectify.
