Volkswagen is testing whether the 5G technology meets the demanding requirements of vehicle production as it moves towards fully networked factories.

20 Oct 2021 | International News : Germany


Volkswagen is taking a further step towards fully networked factories by pilot testing the use of a 5G network at its Wolfsburg plant as well as at the Transparent Factory in Dresden.

A local 5G standalone network is now available at its main plant in Wolfsburg that initially covers the main production development center and the pilot hall. The pilot project will test whether the 5G technology meets the demanding requirements of vehicle production with a view to developing this for industrial series production in the future. A dedicated 5G radio frequency will be used to safeguard secure, delay-free transmission of data.

The Transparent Factory in Dresden has also put a '5G island' into operation. The setup and operation of the 5G infrastructure has been undertaken by Volkswagen itself in a move designed to build up competitive expertise in using this important technology of the future and ensure data security.
