About the Content

In today’s digital world, it’s imperative to implement highly efficient digital factories.

Manufacturers are challenged with the need to build a digital infrastructure that addresses the disconnect between their corporate offices, data centers, and remote factory assets. New network capabilities such as 5G and LEO Satellite Communications accelerate manufacturers’ ability to optimize and scale their digital infrastructure by addressing last-mile connectivity challenges. An optimized, well-thought-out digital infrastructure provides the flexibility and control of automation in factories, real-time visibility into supply chains, and remote servitization options online.

Our conversation on May 20th will focus on how manufacturers can successfully leverage and benefit from new network capabilities in a highly competitive, rapidly accelerating digital environment.

Discussion Topics

  • Sharing pain points surrounding the adoption of digital factories and success stories
  • Creating an infrastructure that can collect, analyze, and distribute data in real-time
  • Identifying 5G’s impacts on transparency and traceability in the manufacturing space
  • Enhancing remote servitization capabilities for the post-COVID era
  • Adopting industrial IoT solutions for cost reduction, improved safety, and supply chain optimization
