How 5G Enables Manufacturing

How 5G Enables Manufacturing

In episode 69 of the podcast, the topic is: How 5G Enables Manufacturing. Our guests are Rowan Högman, Head of 5G Industry Collaboration, Ericsson (@twitter) and Jeff Travers, Customer Success Lead - Dedicated Networks, Ericsson.

In this conversation, we talk about a new Ericsson report on how 5G Enables Manufacturing (Ericsson Industry Lab). We explore some surprising findings, discuss industry trends, as well as the current and future use cases as wireless networks take another step towards being trusted on the shop floor and they muse on the ultimate impact of 5G.  

Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, process engineers and shop floor operators, hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim (@trondau), presented by Tulip (@tulipinterfaces), the frontline operations platform.

Trond's takeaway 

5G isn't just another generation wireless networks, it is a game changer for trust, reliability, and industrial performance at the edge, that last mile which fixed broadband has struggled with. What remains to be seen is how widespread the rollout will be and, of course, how innovative industry will be in making use of the new network.
