Samsung Electronics has announced today that they will be implementing a dedicated private 5G network along with OPTAGE Inc., which is a Japanese Service Provider. This collaboration between the two companies would deploy a real-time video monitoring system at a plant facility in Japan.
More on the Private 5G solution by Samsung
Cameras located throughout the plant and multiple devices will transmit 4K Ultra-HD based live-streaming videos supported by the private 5G network. With the motive of conducting site maintenance from a control centre, the video will be transmitted to a remote maintenance system. This will not only eliminate the need for technician visits at accessible points in the plant but also ensure early detection of failures, improved productivity and efficiency.
Samsung is an established name in the 5G space, and these 5G solutions will act as a resilient backbone to the plant’s private network. The solutions provided by Samsung would include end-to-end 5G solutions that consist of its latest radios, baseband unit and Compact Core. Samsung’s Compact Core provides organisations with an advanced 5G core solution. It runs on single server hardware and is typically ideal for environments with limited footprints and resources. This Compact Core is cloud-native and fully containerized.
