Tethered fixed industrial assets also impact the agility of industrial operations by impeding quick retooling to respond to dynamic market conditions. Untethered fixed industrial assets also increase agility by reducing the time to retool industrial operations to respond to changing market conditions. Can industrial Private 5G help to enable these application uses cases within manufacturing and process operations? The research collaboration evaluated industrial Private 5G technology with ODVA’s EtherNet/IP™, which is the core industrial communications technology used by Rockwell Automation. The key learning objective was to ensure that EtherNet/IP networks are ready for industrial Private 5G and to confirm that industrial Private 5G is ready for demanding EtherNet/IP applications.
