5G-ACIA White Paper is an essential external deliverable to its global partners and major SDOs, which enables all stakeholders for a deep dive all round technological aspects of industrial 5G.
Industrial 5G Devices – Architecture and Capabilities
5G enables reliable, low-latency, high-bandwidth data transmission, making it a key technology for the future of industrial communications. The introduction of 5G to factories and a wide range of other industrial facilities is also creating a need for industrial devices that support the 5G standard....
Distributed industrial applications rely on the quality of service (QoS) of the underlying communications system, which has to meet the application requirements in each case. Some industrial use cases pose highly demanding communication requirements and are therefore quite sensitive to any changes in the QoS. 5G supports comprehensive mechanisms for defining, implementing, controlling, policing, and monitoring QoS. These mechanisms cover both dynamic QoS management for packet-level traffic differentiation within a single-device connection and management of the overall performance of 5G networks. This white paper addresses industrial automation professionals wishing to leverage 5G QoS features in their applications....
5G for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT): Capabilities, Features, and Potential
It’s important to understand how well a wireless communications system such as 5G can be expected to perform its intended use. The technical methods and criteria applied to assess this are native to the wireless industry and may strike those who approach 5G from the end user perspective as foreign or opaque. To help the entire industrial IoT community understand this technology better, speak a common language, and assess whether 5G is the best choice for meeting a particular requirement, this whitepaper describes its capabilities and performance for a defined set of technical criteria....
Service-Level Specifications (SLSs) for 5G Technology-Enabled Connected Industries
5G is poised to become the first generation of mobile communication systems that is widely adopted by vertically integrated industries. In addition to supporting millions of mobile subscribers, 5G will be used to interconnect machines, robots, sensors, etc. for the connected industries, which typically have quite demanding requirements in terms of the communication systems they use. Service-level specifications (SLSs) and the corresponding management mechanisms will play a key role in aligning the offerings of 5G communication service providers with the expectations of connected industries’ clients. This applies especially to SLSs for private industrial networks (also called nonpublic networks or NPNs). ...
Using Digital Twins to Integrate 5G into Production Networks
5G becomes an important part of the infrastructure of the factories due to its performance, flexibility and tailored solutions for factory automation and connected industries. 5G-ACIA has worked on how industrial 5G system is integrated within factories following the I4.0 principles.
Asset Administration Shell (AAS) is a key component of the Industrie 4.0 architecture to ensure integration across system boundaries and interoperability across the value chains. It supports the notion of working with “digital twins” of all assets of a factory.
Two new types of digital twins (AAS) are proposed with respect to the 5G architecture called 5G network AAS comprising of 5G Radio Access Network and 5G Core Network and an independent AAS model for the 5G User Equipment (5G UE AAS). ...
