IIoT is a long-term goal of manufacturers and other industrial companies looking to improve predictive maintenance of systems, reduce downtime and reduce repair costs to improve process efficiency and asset tracking. Connectivity is one of the most difficult challenges to overcome in the face of legacy systems that were never designed to be connected. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, 5G has the potential to solve connectivity problems by enabling edge computing devices to better share data with the cloud.

“As factories and industrial environments become connected to the cloud, the amount of data can quickly become unmanageable, so large that it is impossible to act in real time based on insights generated by sensors,” he says. Francesco Radicate, senior research analyst at Guidehouse Insights. “Adding edge computing reduces latency and allows devices to filter only the necessary information to send to the cloud. 5G and edge computing work together as key ingredients to enable fast and seamless IIoT.”

Private networks are another important factor in edge computing and 5G. They are expected to make it easier to deploy edge computing solutions to enable data-intensive use cases such as computer vision and virtual and augmented reality, the report said.

The report, 5G could boost edge computing for IIoT, describes the role of 5G in IIoT, discusses how it can benefit businesses, and provides examples of real-world examples. The report also provides recommendations on how stakeholders can implement the technology to achieve greater efficiency.
