Alok Shah, vice president of networks strategy, business development, and marketing at Samsung Electronics America said: “We’re still in the experimentation phase, but we’re hopeful there’s value,”. Andre Fuetsch, chief technology officer for AT&T Communications added “We see 5G being a great solution for solving a lot of the Wi-Fi issues that typical factories have today,”

Experts believe that the widespread commercial deployment of 5G technology in manufacturing, transportation, and other fields will bring about transformation. 5G applications are useful in many industries such as car networking, industrial control, and telemedicine, etc. According to Mr. Shah, 5G is useful in the detection of air quality.

“Being able to put thousands of sensors within a relatively small space is hard for other [networking] technologies to support,” Mr. Shah said. In addition, 5G can also aid factory workers in equipment repairs without any buffering or lags.
