Next week's Hannover Messe event will spearhead the use of 5G mobile telephony in industry. Attendees at the event will be able to experience superfast network speeds and their benefits for the first time.
According to Jochen Köckler, the chairman of the managing board of Deutsche Messe, 5G will unleash a new wave of innovation.
Several big-name companies will demonstrate applications that are designed to run on the new 5G standard and there will be an entire display dedicated to it in Hall 16, the 5G Arena.
“If you want to know more about 5G test beds and initial applications of 5G in industry, then you should visit the 5G Arena,” said Köckler. “In Hall 16 we and our technology partners at…Qualcomm are setting up a real, functional 5G network that will span eight showcases.”
ighlights of the display include: Zeiss’s AICell which aims to deliver more accurate and reliable process monitoring for the auto industry, Ericsson’s 5G-related research projects and products and exhibitions from VW Commercial Vehicles, Siemens, Festo, Harting and many more.
These exhibits will run alongside a forum and conference, where over 50 international speakers from business, science and politics will discuss the various opportunities and challenges of 5G.
The 5G Arena Forum and Conference will be held in Hall 16, together comprising five days of programming, running from 10:30am to 5pm each day. The forum will run on the Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, while the conference will be held on the Wednesday (3 April).
“Hannover Messe is the best platform for presenting the first 5G applications at this very early stage of the technology’s development,” said Gunther Koschnick, head of automation at ZVEI. “It is also the best forum for quality dialogue at a subject-specific, technical level.”
