Siemens has introduced a comprehensive private 5G solution, specifically developed for the industrial sector. This in-house developed infrastructure enables industrial companies to establish their own local 5G networks, providing optimal support for automation applications such as mobile robots, autonomous logistics, and driverless transport systems. The technology grants users enhanced control over their network data and allows for custom configuration to suit unique applications. Siemens’ private 5G infrastructure has undergone extensive real-world testing to ensure it meets the rigorous demands of industrial production environments and is currently available in Germany, with plans for expansion to other countries.
HARTING is providing the connectivity to master these challenges – Connectivity for Future Technologies! In the field of automation, the three trends of digital twin, connectivity and modularity will drive further development significantly. Machines and systems will become more autonomous – and will increasingly be making more independent decisions in future.
