Nokia, ABB and Kalmar have conducted industrial trials where 5G supports time-critical applications and enhance protection and efficiency in real-world.
The trials, conducted as part of the Wireless for Verticals (WIVE) research project, represent one of the first real-world applications of time-critical 5G applications on electricity grid and harbor automation.
Nokia and ABB demonstrated protection applications in medium-voltage distribution networks. Severe faults are cleared immediately to keep the distribution network running, guaranteeing the safety of personnel and avoiding damage to equipment. In addition, Nokia and Kalmar demonstrated reliable and low-latency technology to advance container yard automation.
