Abstract 1 (Day 1, Track 3, Session 3)

Local 5G Factory Networks

5G does not only come along with an unprecedented performance in order to support new use cases and applications in different vertical domains, but it will also support new deployment models, such as non-public networks (NPNs). NPNs will play a crucial role for many local applications of 5G, for example in manufacturing or agriculture. This talk will give an overview of relevant drivers and technical enablers for NPNs in the industrial domain and will point out open challenges that still need to be adressed in future.

Abstract 2 (Day 2, Session 2)

5G-ACIA - Driving The Industrial 5G Revolution

The Industrial IoT is one of the most promising new application areas of 5G with a tremendous economic potential, but also very demanding requirements. The '5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation' (5G-ACIA) has been established as a global forum for the ICT and OT industry in order to jointly make sure that 5G for the Industrial IoT becomes a major success. In this talk, 5G-ACIA is briefly introduced and an overview of recent activities as well as remaining challenges is given.
