This third webinar of the series

This third webinar of the series will focus on technical lessons learnt from the early deployments of 5G technology.

About this event

Working closely with the UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), Digital Catapult - the UK authority on advanced digital technology and a 5G technical & innovation Centre of Excellence - is launching a series of industry events to drive Industrial 5G adoption in the UK. Showcasing real life examples of 5G applications, and maximising learnings for the manufacturing and logistics sectors.

This webinar - the third in a four-part series - will focus on understanding and sharing the technical lessons learnt from the early deployments of 5G technology within the UK’s manufacturing and logistics sectors.

The event will showcase the most technical innovative aspects developed within the collaborative R&D projects that make up DCMS’ Industrial 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme. Remaining challenges and areas where there is still work to do will be highlighted and discussed according to the experiences and the lessons learnt from these projects. Special focus will be on the integration challenges of 5G technologies across the whole value chain, processes and use cases of the industrial domain.

Industry experts from the UK ecosystem will share their first-hand learnings, challenges and opportunities that have come from testing and delivering some of the most impactful applications of Industrial 5G.

The event will also discuss the international initiatives and organisations tackling similar subjects of 5G integration with Industry 4.0. This will be specifically the example of 5G-ACIA and GSA.

This webinar will conclude with a panel discussion of leading organisations.

Why attend

  • Meet early adopters, industry experts, innovators and technologists working on real-life 5G applications for industry 4.0
  • Discover the use cases and technical challenges of 5G early deployments within the industrial domain.
  • Learn about specific technical solutions for the 5G/Industry 4.0 integration, for example, network design and security.
  • Find about international initiatives and opportunities around Industrial 5G, such as 5G-ACIA and GSA.

Who should attend

This event is designed for industry sector managers, executives, team members, and technologists from the manufacturing and logistics sectors, as well as those working with 5G and other digital technologies (including AI, AR, and Digital Twin). They will learn about the integration challenges and the technical lessons from the early adopters of the private 5G networks within industrial enterprise.

The webinar discussion will be useful for small and medium size businesses with advanced digital solutions looking to learn about industrial use cases, international opportunities and meet with potential new clients looking to progress in their digital transformation journey. Policy makers are also welcomed to understand how to best engage with industry to design policy interventions.
