The national rollout of 5G has only just started, but KPN has been testing 5G for useful applications in its FieldLabs for some time.
The 5G field lab for the manufacturing industry shows everyone which 5G indoor use cases are possible in a factory environment. Besides speed, 5G also enables larger reliability and very low network latency. A large numbers of wireless sensors also plays an important role in the further rollout of the IoT. Thus, the 5G Field Labs shows that 5G can be used for very different applications simultaneously.
There are currently five FieldLabs. Advanced Solutions Nederland is involved in 3:
1. In Amsterdam, KPN is investigating, together with the municipality of Amsterdam and the Johan Cruijff ArenA, how 5G can make living, working and recreation in the city more enjoyable and safer.
2. At Shell Pernis, 5G is used for robots and helmets that make work even safer and more efficient through predictive maintenance and remote monitoring.
3. High Tech Campus Eindhoven
