Qualcomm Technologies announced demonstrations of industrial IoT applications using a live over-the-air 5G NR network at Hannover Messe 2019 in Germany.  

The test which was conducted with Nokia and with nine other companies, utilized mobile test devices powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements.

The companies showcased a variety of over-the-air 5G industrial IoT demonstrations – from safety panels to smart sensor systems to AGVs – and cutting-edge 5G technology from Qualcomm Technologies, combined with 5G infrastructure provided by Nokia, is helping a select group of exhibitors to show off the future of smart, connected industrial products and solutions.

Jeffery Torrance, VP, Business Development, Qualcomm Technologies
Qualcomm Technologies' leadership in IIoT is reflected with everything from go-to connectivity solutions like our Qualcomm 9205 LTE IoT modem, to new platforms like the recently-announced Qualcomm Robotics RB3 Platform, to joint studies with industry leaders like Bosch on key IIoT topics. 

Mike Calabrese, VP of Global Enterprise and Webscale, Nokia
5G networks will transform today's factories and manufacturing centers into highly adaptive, efficient and intelligent production sites. We are thrilled to bring out 5G solutions to enable real-world industrial cases to the 5G Arena at Hannover Messe, together with Deutsche Messe AG and Qualcomm Technologies.
