5G Rollout Unravels New Demand Niche in Manufacturing
roundworks for the implementation of the 5th generation (5G) mobile communication system have already been underway on a full scale. The start of 5G services will be a huge opportunity for manufacturers and production facility providers to expand markets. The practical use of 5G will enable smart factories, which make use of internet of things (IoT) as espoused by manufacturing equipment companies, to evolve even further.
It has been forecasted that in 2020s, global mobile communication traffic will increase more than a thousand-fold compared in 2010. 5G is aimed to greatly increase the capacity of network systems to respond to such increasing traffic at low cost and with low power consumption.
