5G Future Industrial Communication

BMBF Research Initiatives 5G

Progressing standardization, frequency allocation, and first active implementations can lead to the assumption that 5G needs no further research. This view must be clearly contradicted. The widespread introduction of 5G in an industrial context, among other things, still raises open questions, including the subject areas: Local industrial networks, environmental impacts and health aspects, the uses of virtualization, dynamic infrastructure, or service environments.

The annual Future Industrial Communication conference of the BMBF 5G research initiative will take place this year as part of the IEEE 5G World Forum in Dresden. It deals with the questions “Where are we?” and “What is still to be done?”, viewed from the users’ and researchers’ perspectives.
