Introduction and Overview of 5G-ACIA

Dr. Andreas Müller (General Chair 5G-ACIA | Bosch)

Whitepaper “Integration of 5G with Time-Sensitive Networking for Industrial Communications”

Dr. Kun Wang (Ericsson)

This white paper describes why and how 5G will be applied in industrial networks together with TSN and what interactions between 5G and TSN are needed in order to seamlessly integrate 5G with TSN.


Presentation Whitepaper “Using Digital Twins to Integrate 5G into Production Networks”

Josef Eichinger (Huawei)

The white paper gives an overview of 5G and the I4.0 AAS concept and suggests AAS submodels for the 5G Network and 5G UEs for the efficient integration of industrial 5G as part of the factory infrastructure.


Presentation Whitepaper “Exposure of 5G Capabilities for Connected Industries and Automation Applications”

Kurt Essigmann (Ericsson)

The white paper highlights the required capabilities that must be exposed by private 5G networks towards enterprise users and provides a deployment model for the exposure architecture.


Presentation Whitepaper “Security Aspects of 5G for Industrial Networks”

Ali Rezaki (Nokia)

The white paper “Security Aspects of 5G for Industrial Networks”  focused on capturing novel security requirements of 5G use cases in industrial verticals.


Presentation Whitepaper “Performance Testing of 5G Systems for Industrial Automation”

Dr. Lisa Underberg (ifak)

The previously presented white papers each addressed a specific aspect within the 5G ecosystem. Independent from how these aspects are implemented in a real-world installation, the aim of a 5G system is clear – because after all it is a tool supposed to be used to enable a specific industrial application. But how do I as a user ensure that the 5G system I selected is really capable of supporting my specific application? Performance testing is the answer to that, and this is why 5G-ACIA addressed it in a white paper.

Launching Validation of Industrial 5G

Introdiction of 5G-ACIA Endorsed Testbeds

Arne Neumann (InIT – Institute Industrial IT TH Ostwestfalen-Lippe)

5G-Based Industrial Robotics

Dr. Joachim Sachs (Ericsson), Dr. Krister Landernas (ABB)

In the Kista testbed, Ericsson together with ABB are implementing a 5G-based industrial robotics trial.

5G-SMART Testbed in Bosch Semiconductor Factory

Peter Buseck (Bosch), Dr. Leefke Grosjean (Ericsson)

The 5G-SMART testbed in the Bosch semiconductor factory is installed in a 24/7 operating semiconductor plant in Reutlingen. The testbed will look into how factory automation can be enhanced with 5G.

5G-Based Smart Manufacturing and Industrial AI Services

Josef Eichinger (Huawei)

Huawei 5G testbed provides an open platform for industrial partners to test different features of the 5G system and it can be integrated with applications e.g. AI based analytics.

5G-Industry Campus Europe

Niels König (Fraunhofer IPT), Bart Mellaerts (Ericsson)

The testbed consists of a 5G indoor and outdoor solution covering the industrial shopfloor of Fraunhofer IPT in Aachen.
