Industrial 5G Conference

A driving force behind Industry 4.0’s highly automated production processes is going to be 5G. Without a doubt, the high-speed data transfer capabilities of 5G wireless technology will also play a crucial role in the Dutch high tech manufacturing industry.

Bits&Chips organizes the first edition of the Industrial 5G Conference as online event series. The online conference will be divided into multiple afternoon sessions on

  • 2 February 2021
  • 2 March 2021
  • 30 March 2021
  • 11 May 2021

Each session includes two presentations. With an online ticket, you will get access to the presentations of all sessions and the on-demand presentation videos afterwards. After each session you have the possibility to network with other visitors at the virtual networking space.

About the Industrial 5G Conference

During the first edition of the Industrial 5G Conference you will learn everything about 5G in high-tech systems, factory automation, industrial automation, robotics, production and wireless communication.

With the ability to perform near real-time smart-computing in the cloud, thanks to the low-latency connectivity, 5G is sure to invigorate industrial IoT. Especially in high tech systems development where competitors will be vying to sustain their position in the global manufacturing network from the points of productivity, connectivity and efficiency. The reach of 5G will have no bounds, affecting every company regardless of its size or the industry type.

This virtual event series will offer a broad view on the challenges and opportunities ahead. Presentations at the event will address the following topics:

  • Why will 5G be the standard for future production?
  • How will 5G contribute to higher precision and higher productivity?
  • How will 5G reduce energy by as much as 80 percent?
  • How will 5G help European, especially the Dutch, high tech supply chain stay competitive?
  • How can you ride this technology wave and what partners are there to help you?
  • The keynote speech (by Niels König from Fraunhofer IPT) will clarify what it takes to pioneer 5G for manufacturing.
