Hannover Messe 2017: 5G – the ultrafast wireless communications standard

Industrie 4.0 in real time

Research News /

With data transfer rates of 10 gigabits a second and a latency of just one millisecond, the 5G wireless communications standard is creating the conditions required for the tactile internet. This in turn will open up the door to new industry, transportation and medical applications. Fraunhofer researchers work on the underlying technology and have developed practical concepts to solve one of the most challenging problems – high-speed low-latency data transfer that is also entirely reliable. The new concepts and technologies will be on show at Hannover Messe 2017.
