5G IoT for Manufacturing – GSMA IoT

To educate, support and advance global adoption of 5G IoT by the manufacturing industry and wider industrial sectors

Manufacturing is undergoing a major generational shift. Industry 4.0, the digitisation and advancement of the manufacturing processes and ecosystem, is set to create far more flexible, efficient and sustainable production lines. 5G for IoT underpins this transformation by enabling manufacturing companies and their supply chain partners the opportunity to utilise emerging technologies such as AI and machine vision to give vastly improved visibility over all aspects of their business. The GSMA is focused on building the benefits of 5G IoT for manufacturing, by bringing together leading operators and manufacturing companies around the world.
