September 12th – 17th, 2022, the Hannover Messe USA 2022 will take place in Chicago, USA – co-located with the IMTS.

Hannover Messe USA is the largest gathering of industrial manufacturers in North America and a unique, comprehensive event focused on automation. It attracts proven decision-makers looking to develop relationships and strengthen partnerships. It showcases the world-leading technologies these leaders need to win amid the industry disruption and transformation of industry 4.0 and industrial 5G. 

Booth of 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA)

5G-ACIA will be on the Hannover Messe USA co-located with the IMTS in Chicago from September 12 -17.
5G-ACIA member Verizon will build two private networks – one network in mmWave spectrum and the other one in the so-called c-band in the mid-range spectrum. Both networks are tailored for industrial users and will be accompanied with several live demonstrations from 5G-ACIA members: Ericsson, Fraunhofer IPT, HMS Networks, ifak, Keysight, Nokia, NXP, Radisys, Qualcomm and Verizon.

5G-ACIA will contribute as well at “Solutions Theater”. More information on the presentations and discussion panels will be published soon.

Industrial 5G for the Process Industry

The aim of automation is to streamline production processes, lower energy consumption and improve safety. Sensors measuring process parameters, such as pressures or temperatures, operate in a closed loop by means of central and/or local controllers in conjunction with actuators, e.g. valves, pumps, heaters, etc. A process-automated manufacturing facility may range in size from a few 100 m² to several km², or may be geographically dispersed within a specific region. Example use cases for process automation include mobile robots, massive wireless sensor networks, closed-loop process control, process monitoring and plant asset management.

A non-public 5G network for process automation needs to meet stringent requirements. For instance, low latency and determinism are crucial for closed-loop control. Interaction may be required with the public network (e.g. for service continuity, roaming, etc.). 



Ticket codes will be posted here soon.
