The manufacturing sector is on a journey to digitalise and automate their facilities and operations. Connecting all their physical assets and employees with 4G or 5G is a critical step in this digitalisation journey.
Join this webinar where ABI Research together with Nokia will share research and analysis following a targeted survey of more than 1000+ manufacturers. The analysis will address important questions such as: When should I consider upgrading to 4G or 5G networking to support my critical operations control network? What are the top use cases where 4G/5G can help me in my digitalisation plans?
