5G-ACIA Workshop in Chicago

The fourth stage of the industrial revolution, also known as smart manufacturing or Industry 4.0, heralds an entirely new era. The goal is to significantly improve the flexibility, versatility, usability and efficiency of production systems –and to realize the smart factory vision. In this context, wireless communication, and in particular 5G, is a key enabler, providing powerful and pervasive communication between machines, people and objects. 5G-ACIA’s mission is to ensure the best possible application of 5G technology and 5G networks for the industrial domain.

We are delighted to invite you to this information event. The event is free of charge.


Workshop attendees will learn how 5G-ACIA is working to influence 5G capabilities in order to better support industrial automation use cases, and to effectively meet the needs of discrete and process manufacturing, including 5G integration, testing and validation. 5G-ACIA, as the world’s leading organization for industrial 5G stakeholders and a market representation partner of 3GPP, is actively shaping 5G standardization.
