Key 5G Use Cases and Requirements

This new white paper includes multiple manufacturing and control use cases and requirements, based 3GPP’s 5G specifications. Requirements with regard to 5G services and 5G performance are defined by the 3GPP SA1 working group in corresponding 3GPP
Technical Specifications (TS) and are summarized by 5G-ACIA. G specifications are evolving over multiple releases, starting with Release 15. A substantial set of features supporting the use of 5G in manufacturing is available in Release 16 and expected to continue with Release 17.
The aim of this white paper isto present the industrial use cases and requirements that, from the operational technology (OT) viewpoint, are key for 5G networks.
