5G and Manufacturing: Sustainability

Thursday, 18 Nov 2021


Delivered in partnership between the KTN and UK5G, this event will explore how 5G can be adopted by manufacturing businesses to address sustainability challenges, through better utilisation of resources, to whole life cycle management and beyond.

Sustainability is the shared concern of us all. In Manufacturing, time and waste detract from more sustainable processes and products, further improvements can also be made from having control over the entire product life cycle and better control over supply chains.

Data and connectivity are the modern tools contributing to improved sustainability – with the added bonus of a positive uptick to the bottom line.

5G is transformational in this space. The facility and flexibility of 5G deployment improves existing practice, and allows previously untappable compute resources to be brought to bear unlocking new capabilities. From better design, through better utilisation of resources, to whole life cycle management, 5G techniques are making strides across the sector. 

Taking place, 18th November 2021, 2-4pm, Jonathan Butt, Deputy Chief Engineer, National Composites Centre will be presenting at the 5G and Manufacturing: Sustainability webinar, presenting an overview of the use cases from the 5G & DETI programmes.
