5G-ACIA 2nd Web Seminar Series | Watch on demand via below links.

Join and get insights about the 5G integration with important operational technologies and requirements, such as Time-Sensitive Networks (TSN), Digital Twin, Security and 5G capabilities for Industry 4.0.

The fourth stage of the industrial revolution, also known as smart manufacturing, heralds an entirely new era. Its goal is to significantly improve the flexibility, versatility, usability and efficiency of production systems and to make the vision of smart factories come true. In this context, wireless communication – in particular 5G – is a key enabler. It provides powerful and pervasive communication between machines, people and objects.

5G-ACIA’s mission is to ensure the best possible application of 5G technology and of 5G networks for the industrial domain. Join this 5G-ACIA Webinars to explore how 5G-ACIA is working on the framework design for Industrial 5G and ask your questions to the experts from 5G-ACIA.

Please register online for the following 5G-ACIA web seminars.

Industrial 5G – Where are we?

Dr. Andreas Mueller (Bosch), Dr. Afif Osseiran (Ericsson)

Watch here

Manufacturing is commonly considered as one of the most exciting and promising new application areas enabled by 5G. At the same time, however, the industrial domain also comes along with many specific challenges that require special consideration. Join us for our web seminar “Industrial 5G – where are we?” in order to get an up-to-date overview from some of the globally leading experts of where we currently are on the Industrial 5G journey, including relevant standardization and testbed activities and the further evolution of 5G in future.

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

Dr. Kun Wang (Ericsson), Lukas Wüsteney (Hirschmann/Belden), Dr. Dietmar Bruckner (ABB)
Watch here

5G and time-sensitive networking (TSN) technologies are key to future industrial communications. Both technologies have been designed to provide converged communication for a wide range of services on a common network infrastructure. How 5G can be applied in industrial networks together with TSN and what interactions between 5G and TSN are needed? Join us for our web seminar “Integration of 5G with Time-Sensitive Networking for Industrial Communications” in order to get an up-to-date overview from some of the globally leading experts.

Using Digital Twins to integrate 5G into Production Networks

Josef Eichinger (Huawei), Bernd Kaercher (Festo)

Digital twins will be one of the key enablers for highly flexible factories including new supply chain applications. The main technical feature behind so called “Industry 4.0” concepts is a way to interoperability across the solutions of different vendors as well as the communication network vendors because 5G networks will be the informational backbone of factories of the future. 5G-ACIA has published a white paper that describes an integration concept for 5G networks using digital twin following the ideas of the “Platform Industry 4.0” and send the result as input to the Standardization of AAS (Asset
Administration Shell) in ETSI.

5G Services Operated by Industrial Applications

Kurt Essigmann (Ericsson), Dr. Joachim Walewski (Siemens)
Watch here

Smart manufacturing will benefit strongly from the advanced communication capabilities of the 5G technology. 5G has major advantages on machine-type communication to fulfill the demanding requirements on low latency and very high reliability. In addition to that, factory operators must be able to operate private 5G networks which offer these exceptional capabilities. Join us for our web seminar “5G Services Operated by Industrial Applications” in order to get the latest overview of what capabilities 5G network expose to serve the industrial applications needs.
