Emerging Use Cases of 5G Technology in Industry and Manufacturing

At most factories and industrial sites worldwide, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has not yet become a reality. Smart manufacturing depends on reliable high-speed connectivity, and most factories are still using industrial Ethernet and legacy wireless technology based on Wi-Fi, which has limited capabilities. Today, Ethernet (Class C) is the only technology that allows ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC). For this reason, industrial Ethernet is the most used […]

Understanding 5G Spectrum Frequency Bands

What Frequency Spectrum Do 5G Networks Use? 5G, or “5th Generation,” cellular technology represents a massive leap forward for wireless mobile communications, far surpassing 4G (LTE|Advanced|Advanced Pro, WiMax),  3G (UMTS|WCDMA, CDMA|1xEV-DO), and 2G (GSM|GPRS, CDMA|1xRTT) communication platforms in terms of data rates and reduced latency.   5G technology promises to deliver a cost- and energy-efficient solution with close-to-universal device reach.   […]
