The Manufacturing sector is on a Industry 4.0 journey to digitalize and automate their facilities and operations. Near term capital investment will be needed to meet these objectives with potentially divergent views between IT and OT on what are the key priorities to achieve them.
While there is a steady increase in 4G network deployments and 5G trials in many other industries, for manufacturers there are unanswered technical and business questions and uncertainty of the benefits it provides. Questions such as: When should I consider upgrading to 4G or 5G networking to support my critical operations control network? What are the top use cases where 4G/5G can help me in my digitalization plans?
Nokia and ABI Research sought to find answers to these questions and gain insights into Manufacturing views on 4G/5G networking by conducting a survey of over 600 management level respondents in select countries with the highest GDP% in Manufacturing and in three key vertical segments: Automotive, Consumer Goods and Machinery.
