Ericsson and Porsche have entered into a research partnership to leverage the power of 5G to enhance production capabilities at Porsche’s manufacturing facility in Leipzig, Germany.
This trial project is the first deployment of a private 5G network at a Porsche production complex. It is the start of a new remote production era for the automotive company.
Ericsson’s secure 5G standalone (SA) network operates over a private frequency spectrum, providing high-speed wireless connectivity, ultra-low latency and high data-handling capabilities.
