5G Technology: Impact to the Next Industrial Control Upgrade Cycle

Over the next few years, the Industrial control systems world is going to go through a major generational upgrade cycle. There are many new technologies that can and will impact this upgrade, the increased compute capability at the edge of the network bringing AI, machine learning, increasing video capability and of course, 5G. 5G is expected to bring capabilities that can impact cost, security, regulation and increase functionality for tomorrow’s modern factory in both discreet and continuous manufacturing. Join this web seminar to understand how your business can prepare for, and take advantage of, the advances that 5G will bring.

5G will introduce new business model possibilities and major advances in communication technology that will bring increased connectivity to more industrial devices and sensors and facilitating more operational data to be gathered and analyzed in near real time closer to the control applications that power todays Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. 5G introduces the ability to connect the thousands of sensors and devices that exist in a modern factory in a secure and safe manner to the PLC’s, DCS and other software applications that manage and run the control systems. 5G radio interface will bring new levels of performance and innovation to control automation, as well as, manufacturing operations. Additionally, 5G core technologies will introduce new network capabilities that will enhance cloud computing within the manufacturing facilities and operations.

Attendees of this Wind River session will learn how 5G technology will drive the next industrial control upgrade cycle by bringing new communication and networking capabilities, driving new control automation innovations and deliver cost-savings and operation efficiencies to the industries of the world.
