The private industrial 5G router, a crucial part of the manufacturing sector’s journey towards digital transformation, was launched on Thursday, according to industrial manufacturing giant Siemens.

The gadget automatically changes to 4G or 3G networks if there isn’t a 5G network available.

A wide range of client segments, including intra-logistics, autonomous machines, industrial edge, remote diagnostics, augmented reality, supported work, wireless backhaul, edge computing, and mobile equipment, can benefit over the long run from the applications on private industrial 5G networks.

Industrial networks typically place a greater emphasis on low latency and high availability than do most consumer applications, which tend to be more concerned with high data rates.

“Private 5G networks can be set up to meet the needs of the manufacturing sector, which is where they come into play. Additionally, private 5G networks provide data protection “explained Suprakash Chaudhuri, Head of Digital Industries at Siemens Limited.

Scalance MUM856-1 and MUM853-1, two industrial 5G routers from Siemens, will allow for improved mobile broadband transmission, huge machine-type connectivity, and ultra-reliable low latencies.

Local industrial applications are connected via the routers to 5G, 4G (LTE), and 3G (UMTS) public mobile wireless networks.

These are flexible and capable of handling large data rates, and they may be used to remotely monitor and service industrial equipment like plants, machinery, control components, and other devices via a public 5G network.

For data-intensive applications like the remote execution of firmware upgrades, “Scalance MUM856-1” offers high bandwidths of up to 1000 Mbps for the downlink and up to 500 Mbps for the uplink.

The gadgets can be used in contemporary communication networks as well.

According to the corporation, a number of security features are integrated to monitor data transmission and guard against unauthorized access.
