As a state-based public-private partnership (PPP),
the Puerto Rico 5G Zone is in a unique position to forge
relationships among stakeholders in
government, business, and academia.
Puerto Rico is rapidly transforming across the board and is a natural fit for advancing manufacturing into the 5G era. 5G will streamline processes and increase profitability through AI, machine learning, and higher-connectivity robotics. By facilitating experimentation, research, and collaboration around 5G deployment, our goal is to make critical manufacturing infrastructure safer and more dependable.
Smart cities go hand in hand with 5G. The IoT devices that enable smart-city infrastructure need continuous connectivity with minimal latency. With its greater speed and reliability, 5G will improve the performance of responsive traffic lights, smart garbage cans, and apps that digitally connect citizens to city services. For data management and processing, 5G-enabled technologies will be an essential link between current data and new systems and sensors.
Farms run on massive machinery. When a problem arises with a combine or a processing facility, there are both physical and financial consequences. The Indiana 5G Zone is developing a 5G-enabled critical infrastructure gateway to bring agriculture into a new era of connectivity with increased reliability and durability of systems, so that when one element fails, it doesn’t take down a whole operation.
