5G potential for industry and SMEs

5G is the new communication standard. It lays the foundations for new customer experiences, such as augmented reality, the networking of industrial machines and the Internet of Things with millions of intelligent devices. The technology is also helping to digitise many areas of our everyday lives. The wireless networking of production facilities makes 5G a key aspect of Industry 4.0. If we look at campus networks, for example, machines can be serviced remotely and changes to the production process can be made online. But how is 5G shaping up and what specific opportunities are emerging for industry and SMEs?
