With 5G helping to usher in a Fourth Industrial Revolution, the benefits of a next-generation network are anticipated to register strongly on the factory floor. Just as the refinement of mechanical processes led eventually to the assembly line, the combination of 5G and manufacturing has the potential to bring about another radical breakthrough. 

Verizon and its innovation partners have been hard at work creating the factory of the future, and central to that mission is Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband. The high bandwidth, ultra-fast speeds and ultra-low latency of Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband have the potential to increase factory automation, improve quality assurance and enable supply chain tracking in near-real time. The potential benefits? Smarter, more efficient operations, safer conditions for workers and higher-quality products.

Given the interest in 5G’s effects on processes, at our past Internet of Manufacturing events, we were pleased to get the opportunity to speak to Amy Wysowaty again, since she helps Manufacturing and Agriculture companies understand how these technologies can assist their companies with driving to their business goals.

  • How to partner on 5G innovation and join ecosystems.
