As reported on Manufacturing Management – Part of the Mark Allen Group, Ford and its consortium partners have received government backing for the introduction of 5G connectivity to speed up electric vehicle manufacturing.
A 5G mobile private network delivered by Vodafone Business, will be installed this year in the new E:PriME (Electrified Powertrain in Manufacturing Engineering) facility on Ford’s Dunton Campus. The Vodafone Business 5G solution is set to overcome many of the issues surrounding wireless connectivity in the industrial setting.
