Integration of IoT connectivity via 5G network

The project intends to study innovative solutions for integrating data connectivity in industrial production plants, focusing on the use of 5G technology. The basic idea is to use the 5G network as a preferred infrastructural option (by equipping existing machines and lines with appropriate gateways and realising stand-alone systems to be placed alongside machines or lines when necessary).

The project intends to produce results that will serve as a reference for future applications of the 5G network to the vertical context of data interconnection in manufacturing plants, demonstrating the potential and possibly identifying the limits of this technology, through a series of service experiments in support of the use cases identified by ‘end user’ companies The project intends to leverage new use cases on the innovative 5G network architecture.

  • Provision of services, Pilot Line and infrastructure
    The project will make use of the services offered by the BI-REX consortium, in particular with regard to the use of the Pilot Line, the 5G cell and the Edge Computing platform connected to it.
