Story Highlights

  • Airtel implemented two Industrial-grade use cases for quality improvement and operational efficiency at Bosch’s unit, utilising the trial spectrum allotted by the government. In both cases, 5G technology such as mobile broadband and ultra-reliable low-latency communications drove automated operations ensuring faster scale-up and reduced downtimes, the company said in a statement on Friday.

  • Subhash P, head of technical functions, Bosch Automotive Electronics India, said, “The low latency and reliable connectivity provided by the Airtel Private 5G network at our facility which was experienced during the proof of concept is enabling us to enhance our efficiency and our productivity. Usage of 5G will significantly reduce IT wired infrastructure and enhance the operational efficiency.”
