Siemens announced the launch of private industrial 5G user equipment, a critical component for the manufacturing industry in its digital transformation journey. The applications on industrial 5G offer long-term benefits to a wide range of customer segments that depend on a strong communication backbone such as intralogistics, autonomous machines, industrial edge, remote diagnostics, augmented reality, assisted work, wireless backhaul, edge computing and mobile equipment.
Suprakash Chaudhuri, head – Digital Industries, Siemens said “Industrial 5G will change the way we make decisions, manufacture products, and maintain factories. The unprecedented reliability, extremely low latencies, and comprehensive IIoT connectivity of Industrial 5G can clear the way for pioneering applications in the Pharma Industry. The user equipments launched by Siemens will help the Pharma industry realise the true potential of technologies like Digital Twin of plant, Industrial Edge, augmented reality and virtual reailty (AR/VR) based operator training and troubleshooting/maintenance of process or machines.”
“Availability of 5G is a milestone on the path to Industry 4.0, in which smart factories become more flexible and productive thanks to end-to-end digitalization and the Internet of Things. While in most consumer applications the focus is mainly on high data rates, industrial networks tend to focus more on low latency and high availability. This is where private 5G networks step in as they can be configured to suit the requirements of the manufacturing industry. Private 5G networks also offer data security, he added.
Siemens’ industrial 5G routers Scalance MUM856-1 and MUM853-1 – the first industrial 5G routers from Siemens – will enable enhanced Mobile broadband transmission, massive machine type communication and ultra-relaible low latencies.
The routers connect local industrial applications to public 5G, 4G (LTE) and 3G (UMTS) mobile wireless networks. The router can be used to remotely monitor and service plants, machines, control elements, and other industrial devices via a public 5G network – flexibly and with high data rates.
To ensure the connection of Ethernet-based subnetworks and automation devices, various security functions are included in order to monitor data traffic and protect against unauthorized access: for example, an integrated firewall as well as authentication of communication devices and encryption of data transmission via VPN. If there is no available 5G network, the device switches automatically to 4G or 3G networks.
