Transformative capability is needed if UK manufacturers are to thrive and survive. 5G Factory of the Future is helping sow the seeds of a 5G-enabled future by helping manufacturers across the North West to better understand the benefits of adopting 5G technologies. These benefits include: better insights, lower costs, higher margins, increased quality, reduced time to market and improved delivery times.
Our open-access industrial testbed is developing integrated solutions to address some of the key manufacturing challenges by deploying 5G technologies, using test cases such as robotic assembly, reconfigurable product assembly lines and distributed and shared virtual reality and augmented reality.
The testbed will help manufacturers unlock and realise the potential benefits that 5G technology can bring to their operations. The smart factory of tomorrow starts today.
- Demonstration of cost-efficiency
- Return on investment
- Tackling lack of 5G understanding and cultural barriers.
