About BROADNETS 2021

Beyond 5G enabled advanced manufacturing, the 5th generation (5G) mobile networks and beyond (B5G) provide high bandwidth capacity, low latency and connectivity to enable a new generation of applications, services and business opportunities that have not been seen before. Smart sensors, enabled by 5G/B5G, are coordinated and communicated in real-time to complete the manufacturing process. These smart sensors will be able to assess the quality of components that are being manufactured in real time, reducing re-working requirements. This has the potential to revolutionize modern industrial processes and applications including agriculture, manufacturing and business communications. Through a combination of AI-based planning, edge computing, high bandwidth with low latency, connected machines, AR-enabled workers and integrated logistics. Beyond 5G, one can anticipate that there will be a more dynamic, self-regulating and self-adjusting process that will translate into agility, speed and higher productivity.

The scope of this conference will target at B5G-enabled advanced manufacturing; will include, but will not be limited to energy, automation, mining etc. More specifically, novel models and algorithms for streaming data, edge computing, IoT and cloud management, which deliver cost-effective and ultra-low latency applications, real-time data collection and processing, are solicited. This conference aims at the technology and application innovation through the entire process of 5G/B5G-enabled advanced manufacturing from data collection and interoperability to accurate modelling and real-time computation and analysis in manufacturing process control.
