Wireless Solutions for Industry Verticals Part 1
This presentation highlights the role of 5G in the factory of the future. It consists of two parts: the first part targets a lay audience and provides general information on industrial Internet of Things, with focus on the associated values and business requirements. The technology enablers for such unification between the worlds of telecommunications and industrial automation are put forward, highlighting the role of network slicing. The second part touches more technical aspects of industrial 5G deployments, and discusses solutions offering increased levels of reliability at the radio access domain, as well as network function availability. Emphasis is put on the data duplication approach, showing an analysis on the achievable reduction on packet drops in various load scenarios. The presentation closes with an overview of positioning (localization) approaches, underlining the advances of 5G positioning to predecessor technologies and their potential to meet the stringent industrial requirements.
