5G for future industry

November 9, 2018

This week, the 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA) has been approved as a Market Representation Partner (MRP) in 3GPP.

The 5G-ACIA membership base includes a number of industrial equipment suppliers and end-users as well as ICT companies; with the automotive, energy, industrial manufacturing and production sectors all represented.

As 3GPP technology is now being applied to a diverse number of ‘verticals’, this is the best possible time for the 5G-ACIA to bring a coordinated industry based approach to the standards process, one that will help to align 3GPP to the 5G-ACIA vision to bring the “best possible applicability of 5G technology and 5G networks for the manufacturing and process industries”.

5GACIAAfter the formal approval process, by the seven 3GPP Organizational Partners (National and Regional SDOs), 5G-ACIA has been accepted as a 3GPP Market Representation Partner, as of November 2, 2018.

About 5G-ACIA

5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA) is a Working Party of ZVEI – German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association.

5G-ACIA has been established to serve as the central and global forum for addressing, discussing, and evaluating relevant technical, regulatory, and business aspects with respect to 5G for the industrial domain. It reflects the entire ecosystem, encompassing all relevant stakeholder groups from the OT (operational technology) industry (such as industrial automation, machine builders or end users), the ICT (information and communication technology) industry (such as chip manufacturers, network infrastructure providers or network operators), academia (such as universities or research institutes) and other relevant groups (such as authorities or associations).
