BIPT study reviews ‘successful foreign 5G applications’

The Belgian Institute for Postal Services and Telecommunications (BIPT) has published a study about foreign 5G applications. Based on 113 ‘relevant practical cases’, the institute aims to inspire Belgian companies to rapidly adopt 5G now that a large-scale deployment of the technology is near.

In Belgium, 5G is lagging behind most other EU countries, where the rollout has been underway since 2018 already. The long-awaited auction of the future 5G radio spectrum will normally begin next month with us. BIPT commissioned Capgemini Invent a study offering an overview of successful 5G initiatives overseas. It is a source of inspiration for the Belgian market, but also for the federal government program, where 24 million euros are planned for 5G pilot projects.

Interesting use cases

Despite the delay in terms of 5G, Belgium often has, according to the study, a certain lead over neighboring European countries given the proportion of companies active in AI, IoT and big data. ‘These technologies will certainly benefit from a high-performance 5G infrastructure and will be able to generate interesting use cases’, says BIPT. The practical cases were further selected based on six criteria: impact on 5G awareness, achieved performance gains, sustainability, innovative nature, implementation of AI and edge computing II, as well as maturity and scalability.

113 use cases were finally reviewed, which met the conditions set. With 88 percent, it is the majority of B2B-oriented use cases. ‘This is quite a difference compared to 4G technology targeting more the consumer segment of the market’, explains BIPT.

Successful adoption

The list consists of almost a quarter of the cases related to the transport and logistics sectors (24 percent). If we add production (22 percent) and ‘smart city’ systems (13 percent), these use cases constitute with 67 projects more than half of the selection. These practical cases therefore seem to represent the main potential, when it comes to a successful adoption of 5G in Belgium.

In addition, projects within the energy and utility sectors (12 percent), healthcare and biosciences (10 percent), defense and public safety (8 percent) percent), culture (5 percent) and public administration (5 percent) also offer some potential.

Among the ‘successful 5G applications’ discussed in the study are projects from Lufthansa Technik (remote machine control), Foxconn (self-maintenance and production), Huaheng (smart warehouse), Porsche , Schneider, Ericsson, DHL,…

According to BIPT, the use cases demonstrate that the use of 5G is linked to various digital solutions, where several technologies are involved, such as automation, drones, cameras and connected sensors. The dominant technologies are the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and edge computing.
