The use of 5G technology has had a greater impact beyond better and faster communication. It has major application advancements in manufacturing that allow tools to communicate, correct, and analyze a situation during production. An example of this is at Ericsson and the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology in Sweden which uses 5G in it’s CNC machining. 5G is fifth generation wireless technology. The designation refers to the use of specific band of high-frequency radio waves. The natures of the radio waves allow great penetration and delivery of more data than previous generations. Being able to control, wirelessly, complex machinery in a work zone on a factory floor or production facility is possible with this technology.
- 5G isn’t just about making wifi faster and stronger, it is helping with robotics as well.
- 5G could operate every robot from any large facility that can carry 5G.
- 5G is the next generation in wifi, and the standards for it keep increasing and it gets more evolved.
“If lightning-fast downloads and streaming video are the only capabilities that come to mind when thinking about 5G, it might be time to think again, and to think more deeply.”
