5G and WiFi 6 are critical to manufacturing’s next leap forward

Manufacturing has made astonishing progress in recent decades. But there are even greater changes to come, especially as the Internet itself undergoes its next level of transformation. 5g and WiFi 6 will be a big part of this, by fully enabling data-intensive manufacturing solutions like AI, virtual reality, advanced robotics, and predictive maintenance. The end result? Factories (and products!) that will be cleaner, safer, and more productive than ever before. 

In this podcast, Cisco’s Kevin Delaney chats with some top experts about next-gen wireless, and what to expect in the factories of the future.
