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). ...
Exposure of 5G Capabilities for Connected Industries and Automation Applications
This white paper describes the functional requirements for exposing the capabilities of non-public 5G systems to industrial factory applications. Via exposure interfaces, industrial applications can access and can manage 5G service
capabilities. Industrial applications also monitor e.g. the QoS of communication services and the network status.
Due to the generic nature of the exposed capabilities, it is also possible to support other use cases that share the requirements of industrial factory applications. Examples include control applications for rail transportation, electrical power distribution, and central power generation. ...
Integration of 5G with Time-Sensitive Networking for Industrial Communications
The white paper looks at the standards specified for 5G by 3GPP and the standards specified for Time-Sensitive Networking by IEEE and describes how these two standard technologies can be integrated for industrial communication. ...
Performance Testing of 5G Systems for Industrial Automation
How do I find out whether a 5G system is really suitable for my application? The answer is analyse the 5G systems performance from the application’s point of view by subjecting it to (stress) performance tests. This white paper explains what aspects to be aware of and what to consider when preparing and conducting performance tests. ...
