Airtel 5G Captive Private Network at BOSCH Facility

Airtel has successfully deployed two industrial-grade solutions at Bosch's cutting-edge manufacturing facility to enhance quality and operational efficiency. Both implementations utilized 5G technology, such as mobile broadband and ultra-reliable low-latency communications, to drive automated operations, resulting in faster scaling and reduced downtime.

With Airtel's 5G Captive Private Network, Bosch's Manufacturing Execution System significantly reduced the time for quality assessment through Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) of surface-mounted devices. This was achieved by facilitating faster data transfer over a secure network to an AI/ML server, enabling real-time decision-making by Bosch's Manufacturing Execution System (MES). In addition, the high-speed, low latency capabilities of Airtel's 5G also enabled Bosch's shop floor managers and operators to identify and resolve issues in real-time, thus reducing Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) and Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF).
