  • The challenge

    Increasing efficiency in manufacturing

Manufacturing plants prioritize continuous improvement by increasing efficiency and reducing waste. Having more efficient systems to monitor production-line performance helps achieve that goal. 

By using predictive maintenance and a cohesion of processes, manufacturers can significantly reduce downtime and improve productivity.

  • Aging machines and shorter business life cycles

    Manufacturing companies are under enormous pressure to keep up with increasingly shorter business and product life cycles. In addition, machines are continually aging and becoming more expensive to maintain.

  • 5G opportunities

    5G-enabled manufacturing analytics

5G can support the numerous connected devices used to monitor various manufacturing processes.

5G can handle the massive volume of data needed for accurate analysis in large-scale manufacturing operations.

5G’s low latency can capture near real-time insight into manufacturing operations.

Manufacturers can use their analysis of captured data to optimize operations and make more educated decisions.

How it works

    • 5G-powered manufacturing: Could increase efficiency and reduce downtime

      • 5G can support the massive number of sensors used in manufacturing facilities, helping manufacturers know when something is broken or needs to be replaced soon.

      • Connected cameras could use computer vision to check the tolerances and flaws of the units and note where in the process those flaws are occurring and how often.
      • Connected cameras could transmit data to multi-access edge computing (MEC) servers, potentially using ultra-low latency to rapidly respond to flaws in units and improve quality.

      • The production line can integrate insights and adjust the production process and flow rather than experience costly downtime and defective units.

5G built right

Our 5G Ultra Wideband network is built right to power transformative possibilities for business. With massive bandwidth and low latency, 5G Ultra Wideband can allow manufacturers to get near real-time insights into their processes and optimize operations.
