Siemens, a leader in technology with purpose, is the first Brazilian company to obtain the definitive license to operate 5G Private Industrial. Once the frequency range between 3.7 and 3.8 GHz was approved, Siemens applied for the license to Anatel and was the first industry to obtain the permit. The arrival of 5G at the Jundiaí plant places Siemens as a reference in the implementation of the technology in its own processes and the operational forecast is for the end of the first half of 2023.

“5G has enormous potential to transform critical industries and infrastructure to improve people's lives and reconfigure industrial operations. One of the main differences between 5G and previous generations of cellular networks is in its focus on machine-to-machine communication and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) which, in a scenario of increasing demand, makes 5G a fundamental part of this challenge. technological head, supporting communication with unprecedented reliability and very low latencies”, says Pablo Fava, CEO of Siemens Brazil.

The application of 5G in the industry at large, including mining, oil and gas, manufacturing, infrastructure and agribusiness, creates jobs in the digital economy, allowing data to be collected in real time for Artificial Intelligence applications, especially for the application of Machine Learning. (Machine Learning).

Regarding Cybersecurity, Private 5G networks, because they are isolated from public cellular networks, are much less vulnerable to hacker attacks and information theft. “Factory floor” connectivity needs protection against theft of information (production data, for example) and also protection against malicious attacks.

5G router

Siemens made the first industrial 5G router available to the Brazilian market in 2021. The Scalance MUM856-1 connects local industrial applications to public 5G, 4G and 3G mobile phone networks. It supports future-oriented applications such as remote access via public 5G networks or connecting mobile devices such as automated guided vehicles in the industry. The product also supports future-oriented applications such as mobile robots in manufacturing, autonomous vehicles in logistics or augmented reality applications for field technicians.

To ensure the powerful connection of Ethernet-based subnets and automation devices, the Scalance MUM856-1 supports version 15 of the 5G standard. The device offers high bandwidth of up to 1000 Mbps for the downlink and up to 500 Mbps for the uplink – providing high data rates for data intensive applications such as remotely deploying firmware updates.

Thanks to IPv6 support, the devices can also be deployed on modern communication networks. Several security functions are included to monitor data traffic and protect against unauthorized access. For example, a built-in firewall, as well as authentication of communication devices and encryption of data transmission via VPN. If there is no 5G network available, the device automatically switches to 4G or 3G networks.
