For everyone with access to the internet, at least 90% have heard or do actually use 4G, and there is one thing we all can agree on – it is FAST
Now, think faster!
What if your construction equipment could work faster, carry out smooth automated tasks, and you could actually do more with Real-Time Data by getting even more detailed information about your fleet or equipment? The potential is endless for the next generation of equipment and their performance, efficiency, and overall maintenance when you think 5G.
The fastest internet speed of 4G networks is 50Mps, that in itself is monstrous, but when you think that a speed of 1Gps could become the norm with 5G, then all you can actually see is endless possibilities. Imagine a fleet of equipment with little or no downtime because tasks are automated or because data transfer is so fast and reliable you know exactly when to service, what to repair, or when to simply pull out the equipment for rest or decommission, no more unplanned stops because tasks can be automated with great accuracy and efficiency and equipment may actually be remotely controlled.
One of the main areas of focus of 5G is the Internet of Things (IoT) which is the network of electronic devices, sensors, vehicles, sensors, software, and the connectivity that allows for data exchange between them.
-ENTER the equipment world, and VOLVO
VOLVO is going to be one of the pioneer companies to test out the new and very formidable 5G network before it even hits the general market, an enviable position to say the least. A hand full of companies have been chosen by mobile and telecommunications giant Telia, to have a foretaste of what this game-changing development will mean for the world of equipment and other industries.
VOLVO CE, Volvo’s construction equipment department is definitely the main beneficiary of this program that was launched at the %G World Conference on the 13th of June, in London.
Productivity, safety, automation, and uptime will definitely take centre stage in VOLVO’s outlook for the possibilities offered by 5G.
The new era of equipment and technology is very much on its way, and VOLVO is leading the pack.
