5G is set to become the next cellular standard for heavy industries around the globe. Within the next ten years, it will supersede its predecessors 4G/LTE with the assurance of faster data transmission, lower network latency, increased scalability and more resilient private networks. As a proven technology in Mining, Digital Twins present a unique use case for how organisations can plan for, and embrace, technologies to ensure they are 5G-ready. The shift to 5G will depend on successfully integrating automation and data exchange, which in turn requires reliable connectivity.

Industry will need to draw heavily on the expertise of IoT architects and solution providers to realise its potential and to carefully plan their technological transition. Arq Group and M2M Connectivity, as part of Sierra Wireless, have formed a new partnership around Digital Twins, which draws on 25 years’ experience in cellular technology and solutions.
