  • The road to manufacturing DX: are we nearly there yet?  

The term Industry 4.0 was coined in Germany in 2011 and describes the fourth industrial revolution powered by advances in connectivity, communications, robotics, AI, IoT, Autonomous vehicles and 5G technologies. 5G commercial roll out began in 2018/19, and since then enterprises are becoming increasingly aware that digital transformation requires modern network infrastructure; and mobile network operators are beginning to respond to the enterprise customer needs. Beyond operators, the broader mobile and technology ecosystem are offering parts or end-to-end private 5G solutions to enterprises driving awareness for the customer and partnership opportunities for the ecosystem. Spectrum has also been set aside in some countries with significant industrial manufacturing activity for private use, namely Japan, Germany, the US and South Korea. Despite an increasing demand for 5G in the enterprise sector there is still work to be done, and partnerships to be made, to design and deliver propositions to meet the needs of the industrial verticals. In this session, we welcome industry experts from the Manufacturing and Telecoms sector to give a view on where we are in the adoption of 5G technologies in the sector, what’s working, and what must still be done to support the sector to achieve their industry 4.0 ambitions.

Speakers: Dr. Andreas Mueller (5G-ACIA General Chair, Bosch) and others

  • The Dawn of Industrial 5G – From Theory to Practice

Since the early days of 5G, Analog Devices has seen the Industrial IoT as a strategic focus for communications innovation. 5G-ACIA, the leading global alliance for driving and shaping Industrial 5G, has been a key player in the standardization of many relevant features in 3GPP, such as ultra-reliable low-latency communication, time-sensitive networking, high accuracy positioning, and private networks. Despite these developments, the market uptake of Industrial 5G still lags behind initial projections, leading many stakeholders to wonder what lies ahead.

Join Dr. Andreas Mueller, 5G and 6G Leader at Bosch, for a concise yet comprehensive overview of the past, present and future of Industrial 5G and the primary challenges that need addressing to enhance its adoption and effectiveness. Additionally, the talk will venture into the future transition from 5G to 6G, emphasizing the importance of integrating lessons learned from 5G into the early stages of 6G development.

Speakers: Dr. Andreas Mueller (5G-ACIA General Chair, Bosch) and Joe Barry (Analog Devices)
