The factory of the future is the next step toward improving manufacturing efficiency and quality, lowering costs, boosting sustainability and becoming more agile. To achieve these goals, manufacturers must leverage new technologies such as private wireless networks.

Autonomous mobile robots or guided vehicles (AMRs/AGVs) conditions-based monitoring of hazardous and worker safety, and expanded sensor networks can boost efficiency and productivity. These new technologies give out and take in massive amounts of data that feed machine learning models and require constant connectivity.

Enter private 5G wireless networks, delivering the high bandwidth and ultra-low latency vital to these new manufacturing applications. In this free webinar, we’ll discuss how to build a private network, how to secure it and provide case studies showing the benefits that several manufacturing companies have experienced by building bigger, faster pipelines to keep information flowing.

Webinar highlights: 

  • Benefits that a private wireless network can deliver to manufacturing companies
  • Use cases where private wireless has the biggest impact
  • Cost benefits of private wireless networks
  • How to implement a private wireless network
