The 5G PPP - White paper on Factories of the Future

The 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) published their white paper on “5G and the Factories of the Future” back in 2015. The paper discusses the challenges for wireless communications in manufacturing environments and use cases and it makes it clear that the manufacturing industry is one of the most demanding verticals with respect to ultra-low latencies, ultra-high availability, reliable indoor coverage in harsh environments and energy-efficient and ultra-low communication costs for produced, connected goods.

The current wireless communication technologies lack capabilities with respect to the wireless performance, managing heterogeneity, security and trust, leveraging Internet technologies, and flexible network and service management. The full white paper can be found here.
