WIND RIVER PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE HELPING TO MAKE 5G NETWORKS MORE SECURE, SAFE, AND RELIABLE.

5G technology is expected to enable new business models and use cases in a wide range of embedded applications. The most impacted market is clearly telecom, which will be required to deploy large amounts of networking infrastructure, such as virtual radio access networks (vRAN), to support the new spectrum and resulting use cases.

There are also many untapped 5G opportunities in automotive, factory automation, aerospace and defense, medical, and agriculture—industries in which Wind River® is a prominent supplier of software and technology.

Leverage Wind River's nearly 40 years of embedded experience, cross-industry knowledge, safety-critical application development, and worldwide presence to gain a strong foothold in new 5G market segments.

TELECOM

Service providers need advanced tools to manage complex, distributed 5G networks with many more base stations than 4G networks that operate at lower frequency.

AUTOMOTIVE

Autonomous vehicles will rely on reliable 5G networks for navigation, control, and vehicle-to-vehicle communications.

MANUFACTURING

Factories will gain real-time, closed-loop control over mobile robots used to perform manufacturing tasks and transport materials around warehouses.

AEROSPACE AND DEFENSE

Sea, air, and space systems will collaborate in real time, dramatically reducing time-to-action and increasing security.

MEDICAL

In medical, ultra-low latency 5G networks will support remote, collaborative surgery with doctors and patients in different geographic locations.

AGRICULTURE

Agricultural use cases include automated, unmanned tractors and drones helping to plant and harvest crops, thereby greatly reducing labor costs.
