The 5G-Industry Campus Europe switched on its radio network: Through an area of almost one square kilometer, 19 antennas and a bandwidth of ten gigabits per second, we will run the largest 5G research network in Europe. The aim of the involved partners is to open up new fields of application for 5G mobile communication technology in production. Together with the project partners from WZL and FIR, the Fraunhofer IPT will develop and implement applications and solutions for digital and networked production.
Ericsson and the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology have teamed up to explore and develop industrial applications of 5G. The first use case for production of jet engine components is currently being evaluated by MTU Aero Engines. Watch this video to learn more about 5G applications for manufacturing.
