Ford and Vodafone make a deal to install a private 5G networkJune 26, 2020
It is reported by the portal autonews.com.
Ford and Vodafone recently signed a 5G network deployment contract at a car manufacturer in Danton, UK. According to Ford experts, this can simplify and speed up the production of components for electric vehicles. According to a published report, in the production of one component of the electric car, a huge amount of data is created, and the fifth generation cellular network will provide its almost instantaneous transmission.
It is reported that 5G will be used on the welding line and in the assembly of batteries. It is assumed that cellular communications will replace an outdated Wi-Fi network. According to the latest data, Ford will spend more than £ 65 million on the creation of a 5G network.
Earlier it became known that the Japanese automaker Toyota signed a similar contract with Nokia Oyi to launch an industrial 5G network at the brand’s factory in Fukuoka, Japan.
