A group of 26 leading companies which includes Deutsche Telekom, Huawei, Intel, Nokia, NXP, Siemens and Vodafone, has come together to form the 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA).

The initiative brings together representatives of the traditional automation and manufacturing industries as well as leading organizations from the ICT industry. The idea of 5G-ACIA is to establish 5G in industrial production and to design it for industrial capability from the outset.

5G makes it possible to implement Industries 4.0 even faster and to take it to the next level. This technology enables an unprecedented degree of flexibility, versatility and mobility in industrial production. There are many advantages to 5G, including a very powerful wireless networking technology that is suitable even for critical industrial applications.

5G-ACIA said it is actively contributing to the standardization and regulation of 5G. At the same time, it identifies and analyses possible use cases and the associated requirements from the perspective of the industrial domain.

Dr. Andreas Muller (Bosch), Chairman of 5G-ACIA
5G will become the central nervous system of the Factory of the Future and will have a disruptive impact on industrial production. For the first time, the 5G-ACIA brings together all the major players worldwide. This enables us to work in a concerted and targeted manner to ensure that the interests of the industry are taken into account accordingly.
