Porsche and Ericsson launch 5G research network

Another step toward the Smart Factory: Together with Swedish mobile network supplier Ericsson, Porsche has launched a 5G research network at its Leipzig factory.

This is the first 5G research network in a Porsche production environment. The independent 5G research network utilises a private frequency spectrum, but is based on the same technology used in commercial networks.

A 5G network is already in use at the Porsche Development Centre in Weissach. The 5G research network enables real-time and secure transmission of data between human, machine and vehicle. Åsa Tamsons, Head of Business Area Technologies and New Businesses at Ericsson, says: Ericsson is proud to work with leading companies like Porsche in their smart factories and provide them with our world leading 5G and Private Network products. 5G connectivity can enable the next step in digital transformation in manufacturing, making it more efficient and effective. Ericsson’s Private Networks empower greater productivity, safety and flexibility across a variety of industries from manufacturing, processing, mining, offshore, and beyond.

In this use case, process devices on a robot are controlled via 5G rather than wires.
