5G And Supply Chains - A Chat With Fraunhofer Institute's Karin Loidl

The Digital Supply Chain podcast

Jul 29 2022 • 27 mins

5G will have a significant impact on supply chains. Public 5G networks are being rolled out right now by many mobile operators, and it's also possible to roll out private 5g networks.

To find out more about the implications for supply chains I invited Karin Loidl from the Fraunhofer IIS to come on the podcast.

We had a fascinating conversation covering why 5G is so important, some of the use cases (including when to use 5G, and when to use wifi), and the timeframe for the different 5G version rollouts (and 6G and onwards!).

I learned loads, I hope you do too...
