Efficient and seamless communication between devices, sensors, and the cloud is the key to data-driven optimization of processes. But how do we achieve this harmonious connection? How can we ensure a reliable communication between devices through cable and air – and in one language?
In our last post, you learned about the importance of using Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) as step 1.
Here is step 2 of the 4 essential steps to reaching that goal:
The Power of 5G Technology
However, wired connections alone won’t suffice for highly flexible and autonomous production. To unleash the full potential, a wireless network with sufficient bandwidth is essential. 5G technology offers significantly higher transmission rates than 4G or WLAN and real-time capabilities. It’s perfect for applications like automatic stops to avoid hazards and enables private (= secured) networks, as special frequency bands are reserved for businesses.
