How 5G Private Wireless Networks Can Enable MRO Companies to Improve Operational Efficiency and Innovate

16th August 2022, Europe 12:30 - 14:00 CEST | 18:30 - 20:00 SGT

How can private 5G networks help your organization improve operations and overcome business challenges, including outages and inefficiencies posed by Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies?

Industry 4.0 will have a profound impact on how different sectors work in the future. In fact, it already is. It promises unprecedented levels of operational process automation, digital application usage and highly-reliable connectivity.

Communications technologies, particularly wireless, will play a key role in this digital transformation. However, existing infrastructure – including Wi-Fi – often struggles to meet the reliability and coverage demands of a modern-day airport hangar, especially those used for maintenance, repairs and overhaul (MRO).

One organization that was catalyzed by the pandemic into making this shift was Lufthansa Technik. At the start of 2020, it had the modest goal of running a pilot on virtual engine parts inspection. The idea was to use a private 5G wireless network, provided by Nokia, at LHT’s Hamburg facility, to power their Virtual Table Inspection (VTI) application, which would allow their civil aviation customers to inspect their engines without having to travel to Hamburg. Then the pandemic, and what was meant to be a trial quickly became the only way to do business.

5G private wireless networks can improve processes such as the use of augmented reality in fuselage customization, automated guided vehicles in stocking environment, securely connected drones for high-rise inspections and flexibly placing assets – like additive printers and robots – in the hangar.

Join thought-leaders from Nokia, and other like-minded industry peers, in this Meet the Boss virtual roundtable to discuss the benefits of using a 5G-powered private network, the impact it could have on your business and the difference it could make to your customers.
