5G use cases: Innovation in the industry

Large volumes of data, transmitted quickly and securely – this is how 5G networks are revolutionizing industry. Regardless of which 5G use cases companies choose, the deployment of 5G technology brings old business models and processes into the age of Industry 4.0.

Unlike the public mobile network for private users, the private 5G campus networks are deployed on defined local areas and enable 5G use cases such as autonomous driving, remote maintenance via augmented reality and drones, predictive maintenance through IoT sensors, real-time productivity and performance monitoring, or remote control of robots without noticeable delays or interference.

5G use cases by category

Of course, use cases vary by industry and enterprise, but most 5G use cases can be grouped around one of the following three categories:

Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB)

Large bandwidth, high data throughput

A large bandwidth (eMBB) is required in use cases with very high data transfer. Thus, the focus of a 5G network is high data throughput. By building a local 5G campus network, a previously impossible real-time application can be enabled, such as with augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).

Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication (URLLC)

Autonomous, intelligent decisions in real time

Intelligent decisions sometimes have to be made within seconds. Therefore, when using networks for intelligent processes, such as autonomous driving and autonomously operated vehicles, high availability and low latency are essential (URLLC). 5G technology enables data exchanges and decisions in real time.

Machine-Type Communication (MTC)

Communication between devices

Complex business models with many networked devices can quickly lead to network congestion. In your own 5G campus network, you are independent of network providers and your network is just for you. The new technology allows you up to 100,000 connections per km2. For example, in industrial automation, very comprehensive end-to-end coverage can be achieved for device-to-device communication (MTC).

Multiple 5G use cases with network slicing

Through so-called network slicing, several different use cases can be deployed within a 5G campus network. In order to make ideal use of the 5G network, the network is “fragmented” according to the individual requirements of a use case. Your network is therefore ready for any case and allows you many different ways to benefit from the advantages of being your own network operator.
