Position Paper – Our view on the Evolution of 5G towards 6G

Summary

Insight

5G-ACIA will continue to focus on enabling the full potential of 5G in connected industries and automation, in particular in the manufacturing and process industries. At the same time, we want to ensure that the needs and requirements of the industrial automation sector are considered beyond the year 2030 (e.g. in the context of beyond 5G). Therefore, 5G-ACIA will continue to bring forward requirements to the relevant standardization bodies in order to ensure the long-term success of mobile communications in the industrial domain.
5G networks have just recently started to be deployed, hence only initial thoughts can be given on the industrial requirements that need to be supported in the next decade.

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). ...
