5G-powered digitization promises to accelerate connectivity-led transformation in an increasingly hyperconnected world, ushering in a new range of possibilities for both individuals and enterprises. 5G provides superfast data rates, massive traffic capacity and ultra-low latency than any existing wireless technology. The potential of 5G facilitates the realization of many innovative use cases that can make technology increasingly purposeful.
STANDALONE USE CASES
Basic building blocks like AR/VR applications, or standalone robots or video analytics
5G enables AI, predictive and preventive analytics to turbocharge smart factories
An important benefit of the smart factory is its ability to automate repetitive, labor–intensive, and potentially dangerous tasks. AI coupled with preventive and predictive analytics can prevent unplanned downtimes, which can be a major impediment to maximizing productivity for manufacturers.
5G-enabled remote monitoring of production machinery, and asset tracking enhances safety and efficiencies
5G implementation allows for remote monitoring and controlling of production assets, a trend that will be even more notable in a post-COVID world. Operators can track operations in real-time through software systems remotely.
5G powered remote operations and maintenance boosts efficiency across the value chain
Remote operations and maintenance are becoming important enablers to enhance remote operability, sustainability and monitoring in real-time for enhancing efficiency across the value chain.
5G influences accelerated adoption of unmanned technologies like robotics, autonomous and drone systems
Manufacturers are accelerating the adoption of unmanned solutions to achieve higher efficiencies in the supply chain, logistics, surveillance and monitoring.
5G-enabled connected car platforms is a winning proposition for all stakeholders
Vehicles interacting with the cloud in real-time via 5G provide important alerts to the enterprise about location, operational parameters and emergency alerts. This data can be used by various stakeholders of the ecosystem like vehicle owners, dealers, insurance providers, traffic regulators and others to enhance the system efficiency, reduce the cost of operations, improve overall safety and enhance sustainability.
5G makes vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication pervasive
The impact of advanced technologies on the connected vehicle industry has made communication, information and control an everyday aspect. 5G-enabled telematics control units (TCUs) help V2X communication smoothly lay the infrastructure for automated driving and elevates automotive safety, reliability and user experience.
A mobile workforce empowered by 5G delivers increased efficiencies
The utilities industry is asset-intensive and invests significant time and money in managing and maintaining them. Today, asset management is handled by thousands of field technicians manually inspecting the sites spread across vast geographical regions.
5G-enabled solution to contain the risks of wildfires and power outages
Vegetation management is a top priority for utilities and is the most important lever to mitigate risks of wildfires and power outages. A complete view of the current and forecasted vegetation states is critical for an effective workflow to mitigate these risks.
5G-led remote supervision of financial devices reduces cost and time to market
Testing at-the-site devices is challenging, especially for ATMs or points of sale, as it is expensive to ship them offshore to test.
5G strengthens autonomous security
Testing is not only limited to devices - mobile applications developed for customers and employees need to be tested in ways that simulate user interactions. 5G, when combined with quantum cryptography, can help test and secure mobile banking applications and the data within.
Connected retail stores with 5G, Edge
Building smart stores and creating interactive user experiences using 5G and edge computing are priorities for retailers. Edge devices such as sensors and cameras in stores can help understand product interactions and movements in the store.
