APAC 5G Case Study – Secure and Responsive Connectivity for Manufacturing and Healthcare by True
Fast and secure 5G connectivity can help all kinds of organisations to become more efficient and effective. In Thailand, mobile operator True is exploring opportunities to use 5G to improve both manufacturing and healthcare.
True and Huawei have deployed a standalone 5G network and mobile edge computing (MEC) to enable Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok to become a smart hospital. In the manufacturing sector, True has partnered with Mitsubishi and Lertvilai to demonstrate how a 5G network can support production lines. For the ongoing demonstration at Automation Park, near Bangkok, Mitsubishi set up robots and machines to manufacture products.
Piroon Paireepairit, Head of the 5G Working Group at True, said: “True’s key agenda is to drive a new 5G ecosystem in Thailand, which will enhance the national digital transformation, as well as create new potential in the digital economy era. One of the key drivers would be the support of government agencies who could provide funding and support to pilots and develop new 5G business cases and ecosystem in various vertical industries.”
