Orange Belgium and KPN will investigate how 5G technology can accelerate the further digitalization of one of Europe’s most important waterways. The aim is to define a low-altitude cross-border digital corridor for mobility applications and aviation that will make key nodes in the global supply chain, namely ports and hinterland waterways, more efficient, secure and sustainable. The high speed and ultra short response times (low latency) of the 5G networks will ensure secure and highly reliable connectivity.
Airtel has implemented two Industrial grade use cases for quality improvement and operational efficiency at Bosch’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, utilizing the trial spectrum. In both cases, 5G technology such as mobile broadband and ultra-reliable low latency communications drove automated operations ensuring faster scale up and reduced downtimes. The trial successfully demonstrates Airtel’s capability to deliver high-quality Private Network solutions for Industry 4.0.
