Private & Dedicated Networks for Industry 4.0
5G private and dedicated networks are a key approach to enable industrial verticals, and, provide infrastructure support for intelligent upgrading of complex environments such as industrial campuses, deep mines, petrochemical plants and smart ports. Private networks have already become established based on 4G LTE networks and it is expected this trend will grow dramatically with the improved feature set, and expanded bandwidth available on 5G networks. With a wide range of deployment examples Mobile Network Operators are able to offer a wide range of solutions to industrial customers including secure, private 5G dedicated networks, high-speed mobile broadband throughout the industrial facility, and edge computing for data/ processing localisation complementing 5G’s ultra-reliable, low latency capabilities. Mobile Network Operators are expected to have a key role in enabling private and dedicated networks in areas such as public network access, spectrum, planning, and availability of system specialists or outsourced services. This workshop explores some of the choices being made for private and dedicated networks by industrial organisations and the support provided and partnerships being forged with Mobile Network Operators.

Enabling Digital Transformation of Industries in the 5G Era

14:00 – 15:00 | Wednesday 30 June | The Studio, Hall 3

Session Details

There is little doubt that that the pandemic has changed the way enterprises operate. While some IoT projects were put on hold or cancelled, the pandemic has also highlighted the overall commitment to digital transformation and the need to make use of data, in the cloud or at the edge.

Challenges to IoT deployments remain, particularly around integration, privacy, security and cost. Businesses also find it challenging to navigate the complex and fragmented IoT vendor ecosystem. The potential market for private wireless networks adds further complexity: the GSMA Intelligence Enterprise in Focus Survey shows that 22% of enterprises require location-specific coverage (e.g. for a campus or factory).

This session will discuss how ecosystem players can help simplify and scale deployments, leverage partnerships and address the challenges facing enterprises on their digital transformation journey in the 5G era.
