APAC 5G Case Study – 5G Brings Smart Manufacturing to Indonesia
Highly reliable, low latency wireless connectivity can help manufacturers move faster, paving the way for major productivity improvements. In Indonesia, mobile operator Telkomsel has developed a 5G-based solution that is designed to support automated guided vehicles, remote assistance, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).
In June 2021, Telkomsel deployed its IoT Smart Manufacturing solution with a leading multinational manufacturing company in Batam City. The manufacturer has used the solution to equip staff with VR headsets that can help them fix faulty machinery, and to enable real-time reporting on plant operations. As a result, managers no longer need to prepare weekly reports, while worker productivity has improved by about 17%, according to Telkomsel.
“This collaboration is the first use of industrial 5G technology services in Indonesia,” says Alfian Manullang, Vice President Telkomsel Internet of Things (IoT). It underlines “our commitment to present Telkomsel 5G service ecosystem by building partnerships with stakeholders, especially industry players.”
Telkomsel is a contributor member to the GSMA APAC 5G Industry Community. Find out more about GSMA APAC 5G Industry Community: https://www.gsma.com/asia-pacific/communities/ap5gic/
