WORKSHOP: “5G in Vertical Industries”

5G has emerged as a key enabler of digitalization in vertical industries. This has opened transformative opportunities in different sectors such as manufacturing, energy & utilities, ports, mining, transportation, public safety, agriculture to name a few that seek to optimize operations and lowering opex, improve safety and enhance sustainability. The successful deployment of 5G in vertical applications requires close collaboration between vertical industries, and an ecosystem of technology providers, system integrators, business analysts and CSPs. Motivated by these trends and advances in 5G to foster industrial innovation, IEEE workshop on 5G in Vertical Industries is bringing together leading stakeholders from across the entire ecosystem to discuss opportunities and challenges.
