Global initiative 5G-ACIA brings industrial 5G to life at Hanover Fair 2019

The upcoming 5G generation of mobile communications is of great importance for industry. The 5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation (5G-ACIA) has set itself the goal of successfully establishing 5G in industrial production and making it industry-capable from the outset. The initiative brings together representatives of the classic automation and manufacturing industry as well as leading organizations from the ICT industry.

The global initiative 5G-ACIA is growing rapidly and has four new members since January 2019: LS telcom, a specialist in spectrum technology, modem manufacturer Ublox, automation company Sick and the Chinese mobile phone supplier ZTE are now supporting the work of the initiative.

Deutsche Messe AG also became a member of 5G-ACIA on March 1, just in time for the Hanover Fair. It will support the initiative in its worldwide expansion. The first of these is Hanover Fair 2019 with a 5G hall. There you will meet the initiative at booth D38/23 and in lectures and panel discussions in the 5G Forum (D38). The forum is a meeting place for experts and interested parties who would like to exchange information on industrial 5G - for example on the topic of standardization and regulation of 5G. Here, too, 5G-ACIA has built up a great deal of expertise and became Market Representation Partner of the international standardization organization 3GPP at the end of last year. Within a very short space of time, this has made it the global voice in standardization for industrial 5G.

The programme runs every day from 10.30 am to 5 pm in Hall 16. You will also have the opportunity to get in touch with our 5G experts, who will answer all your questions about industrial 5G.
