Webinar Overview

The Manufacturing sector is on an Industry 4.0 journey to digitalize and automate their facilities and operations. Wirelessly connecting all of their physical assets and employees is a critical step in this digitalization journey.

While there is a steady increase in 4G network deployments and 5G trials in many other industries, for manufacturers 4G/5G deployments are just beginning due in part to technical and business questions and the benefits it provides over other alternatives. 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.

Join us for this webinar in which ABI Research and Nokia will present findings and insights from this survey.
