Almost four months after the auction of the 5G mobile frequencies, a trade fair in Hanover is to show the potential of the new standard for the industry. At least 100 companies and institutions are expected to attend the 5G CMM Expo at the city’s exhibition grounds from October 8-10. The abbreviation CMM stands for "connected mobile machines."
"5G will trigger a major innovation boost in the industry, as the number of mobile machines and systems will increase exponentially," said JochenKöckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe, in Hanover on Wednesday. "Very soon, the Internet will be used more by mobile machines than by humans."
At the trade fair, 10 to 15 applications will illustrate the possibilities of the technology. Door systems, for example, could open automatically for approved vehicles. In aviation, damage to freight containers will be detected automatically. By 2020, the Hannover Exhibition Centre should also be fully 5G-capable.
Private users can only use the fast mobile communications with 5G-compatible smartphones. In Lower Saxony, the joint municipality of Hesel in the district of Leer and Bennemühlen in the municipality of Wedemark near Hanover were made 5G antenna locations in mid-July as pioneers in the state.
