5G IOT can extend Industry 4.0 across the supply chain. Manufacturers recognise the benefits that can be realised by extending the reach of the network beyond the factory floor. Indeed, supply chain management is a key area where significant improvements in operational efficiency can be made. This is particularly the case for verticals that command high-margin products, for which greater monitoring and visibility of assets in-transit is of paramount importance. Here, there is an opportunity for a single unified 5G solution which provides end-to end connectivity for mobile assets. Utilising elements of both private and public 5G networks would allow manufacturers to link together segregated systems both inside the factory and across the wider value chain, including supply chain, distribution, warehousing, and customer service.
