Private 5G creates an area within the factory that is completely covered by the 5G signal, thus providing all the services that 5G is capable of delivering and ensuring full and dynamic coverage of the industrial IOT machines that connect to the network. This will enable the development of business intelligence in the near future to open up the factory to a new range of digital services via 5G connections.
