5 ways Camp Hall’s 5G capabilities can benefit modern industry
At Camp Hall, our technological commerce park is perfectly positioned to accommodate the businesses of today and well prepared to host the businesses of tomorrow, too. In fact, technology and advanced connectivity were among the top factors we considered when designing our property’s infrastructure — and it shows in the robust technological amenities that resulted.
Thanks to our planners’ forward thinking, our property’s five strategically placed fiber connection points ensure seamless internet connectivity and fast, strong connections throughout the site’s 6,800 acres. Three cellular towers and an array of network-enhancement features ensure strong wireless coverage, and free Wi-Fi service in our Village Center that will keep employees connected.
And looking forward, we’re ready for the technological enhancements and smart technologies of the future, too — including 5G. [any specific 5G readiness details we can add here? any 5G infrastructure already in place at Camp Hall?]
Consider these five ways that modern industry can harness Camp Hall’s 5G capabilities to create a more productive and more digital workplace — all while powering smart commerce that’s sure to be critical to success in the business world of tomorrow:
- Autonomous machines: Inside factories and warehouses, wireless technology’s fifth generation promises to lead the way to a new generation of industrial robots — ones that are no longer constrained by wired communication links, giving them more freedom to roam. 5G’s faster speeds and lower latency will also enable more precise control of industrial robots in real time, as well as stronger connections to people and machines both locally and globally. In short, 5G technology brings the “factory of the future” much closer to reality.
- Autonomous logistics: With the reduced latency and increased data-transmission reliability that 5G in the workplace is expected to deliver, fleets of self-navigating Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) working together could revolutionize in-house logistics for large industrial plants and warehouses. Among other advantages, this could allow for the automated delivery and replenishment of production supplies, helping to conserve manpower and prevent production downtime.
- Enhanced mobility: A long list of mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones and handheld RFID readers are already being employed in factories and warehouses to give workers more mobility — allowing them to break away from their desks and get things done on the go. With 5G, the network these devices depend on for on-the-go connectivity will be even more reliable and powerful, supporting a mobile and productive workforce that will thrive.
- AR-assisted workers: By providing the higher bandwidth needed to seamlessly transmit data-heavy multimedia presentations and communications to wearable devices, 5G can support the remote assistance of service and maintenance technicians via augmented reality. Such technology could enable, for example, remote experts to walk on-site personnel through complicated repairs using AR goggles, which could allow the local worker to hear guidance, see videos, view equipment blueprints and more — all while actively making the needed repairs. On the other end, the remote consultant could see exactly what the on-site technician is seeing in near real time, facilitating in-the-moment diagnostics and guidance.
- Added insights from the edge: With 5G’s reliable connectivity and high bandwidth supporting near-instantaneous data exchange between edge devices and the cloud, workers in 5G-enabled office spaces can quickly and effectively capture and analyze the real-time data needed to boost efficiencies in operations. Further, 5G’s low latencies can support fast decision-making and speedy implementation of any changes the newly acquired, data-driven insights may warrant. To give it even more potential for impact, the analytical data harnessed from edge devices can be made globally accessible almost instantly.
