The fourth industrial revolution is about embedding technology in society, global economies, and even within humans. It comprises the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, robotics, and 3D printing, as well as bio and nanotechnology.

Each industrial revolution has had a different enabler to improve industry and processes. 5G is the enabling technology for the fourth industrial revolution, which will connect devices across verticals and is set to make a profound impact by enabling smarter factories and processes as well as pervasive societal and personal welfare benefits.

This webinar is for those who want to understand what kind of functions and processes 5G will enable in a factory environment. We will cover key 5G developments including work by the 3GPP for Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communications (URLLC). We will also look at the latest developments in the 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA) and the industrial Internet of Things. The webinar concludes with a 5G factory example use case.
