Title: Enhancing automation in rail yards, depots and factories with LTE/5G private wireless
Duration: 1 hour
Industry 4.0 aims to connect the digital to the physical world and infuses it with intelligence. It will profoundly affect how industry sectors, including railways, will work in the future as it brings unprecedented levels of operational process automation, usage of digital applications/services, and secure and highly reliable connectivity.
Communications technologies, particularly wireless, play a key role in this digital transformation; however, wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi are often challenged to meet reliability and coverage demands in a dynamic rail yard environment. LTE/5G private wireless networks are key to unlocking new productivity gains. An LTE/5G private wireless network is a standalone network providing reliable pervasive connectivity focused on operational assets and users. It will enable modern railways to be more productive and prepared for the next age of Industry 4.0 technologies, that bring use cases such as automated shunting, connected workers, data showers, and convenient use of digital devices.
