The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has been a goal of manufacturers and other industrial firms for years to improve predictive maintenance of systems, reduce downtime, and reduce repair costs to improve process efficiency and asset tracking. Connectivity is one of the most difficult challenges to surmount, given that many firms are working with legacy systems that were never designed to be connected.
5G has the potential to solve this connectivity problem by allowing edge computing devices to better share data with the cloud. This report describes the role of 5G in IIoT, discusses how it can benefit companies, and provides recommendations for how they can implement the technology to achieve greater efficiencies. Private networks are expected to make it easier to deploy edge computing solutions to enable data-intensive use cases such as computer vision and virtual and augmented reality.
This ‘Guidehouse Insights report ’ describes the role of 5G in IIoT, discusses how it can benefit companies, and provides example real-world use cases being implemented. The report also provides recommendations for how stakeholders can implement the technology to achieve greater efficiencies.
