Facing the industrial manufacturing scene and other vertical industries with strong demand for network connection bandwidth, 5g has become the preferred connection technology, and CPE has become the key product form to introduce 5g into industrial manufacturing and more industries.Then, compared with consumer grade CPE, what are the special needs of vertical industry for 5g industrial grade CPE? What are the innovative 5g industrial CPE products and solutions in the industry? What successful application cases are worth learning from?
Industry users put forward more stringent requirements for industrial CPE
According to keystone Strategy & Huawei spo Lab’s research and analysis: it is estimated that the global ICT related industries’ digital revenue will reach US $4.7 trillion in 2025, involving 10 major industries, including manufacturing / supply chain, smart city, energy / public utilities, AR / VR, smart home, health care, smart agriculture, smart retail, Internet of vehicles, UAV, etc., of which the total market space related to 5g will exceed US $1.6 trillion.
The digital super power of 5g enabling industry is self-evident, but the premise is that you should first connect to 5g network, and CPE has become the key product form for 5g to fly into thousands of industries.Unlike consumer CPE, which only needs to play the role of “wireless routing”, 5g industrial CPE not only needs to convert 5g signal into WLAN signal to provide wireless broadband access service for industrial users, but also provides industrial network performance and guarantee with larger bandwidth, higher speed, lower delay, higher protection and higher reliability for industrial customers, so as to provide service for industrial equipment and vehicles High level wireless broadband services required.
For example, in the port industry, the remote control of the tire crane has strict requirements for communication and control network. The remote controller implements remote control of the tire crane by sending multiple videos back to the control center, which requires the differentiated network to meet the high uplink bandwidth. Currently, a single tire crane needs about 35mbps uplink bandwidth, which will be continuously optimized and reduced in the later stage, and at the same time, it needs a stable low uplink bandwidth In addition, in typical intelligent manufacturing scenarios, the uplink bandwidth of machine vision needs to be more than 50Mbps or even 200Mbps, the end-to-end communication delay is less than 10ms, and the reliability requirement is more than 99.9999%; in special scenarios such as high cold and high humidity, the protection ability of CPE equipment is put forward more stringent requirements. All of these put forward higher requirements for industrial grade 5g CPE.
Six advantages of Dingqiao 5g industrial CPE
Data show that as of November 2020, a total of 21 industrial grade CPE equipment have been released in the world. Among the few 5g industrial grade CPEs, there are few industrial grade products that can really meet the needs of vertical industries.In order to help more industries introduce 5g to realize digital transformation, Dingqiao launched 5g industrial CPE ins 2.0 in May last year, helping all industries realize fast, convenient and safe access to 5g “end” side, and providing access and business enabling platform for 5g applications in vertical industries.
Advantage 1: highly reliable industrial protection. Dingqiao 5g industrial CPE ins 2.0 strict industrial design and production process are adopted to enhance the service life of products outdoors. Strict waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, shock proof, salt spray proof and EMC tests are conducted to ensure that each 5g industrial CPE product can reach IP65 industrial protection level, and the shockproof level is as high as 5M3, which helps industry customers not to be afraid of salt spray, dust, vibration, rain, hail, bumpy road, etc It is a harsh industrial environment.
Advantage 2: strong routing networking capability. It not only supports VPN function and bridging mode, but also supports multi APN, multi VLAN, TR069 and tr143 protocols, which can adapt to different networking requirements of industry customers and the needs of high-speed and safe information transmission.
Advantage 3: provide professional Internet of things cloud platform mcube. Provide safe and reliable connection communication and device management capabilities, support massive device access, cloud device information collection, cloud device control and device data analysis and other functions, and open rest interface for third-party devices and business systems, enabling industry partners and developers.
Advantage 4: Super uplink and carrier aggregation meet the high-level needs of the industry. Dingqiao 5g CPE ins2.0 has super uplink capability, supports N78 + n84 super uplink, makes the uplink rate up to 425mbps, reduces the uplink waiting delay through cross carrier scheduling, and reduces the maximum delay by 30%. Through the carrier aggregation function, it can make more effective use of continuous or discontinuous spectrum resources, maximize the spectrum resource utilization of each carrier, support N78 + N78 uplink and downlink 2cc (component carrier) aggregation, and the maximum uplink rate can reach 750mbps, which can meet the needs of various large uplink services.
Advantage 5: professional antenna design. Dingqiao 5g industrial CPE ins 2.0 unique directional antenna / omni-directional antenna switchable design enables CPE to have stronger air port compatibility and wireless gain, which can support the industry application requirements of fixed and mobile scenes at the same time; at the same time, the maximum gain of directional antenna is 12dB, which can expand the coverage distance by 125%, reduce signal interference, expand the signal coverage, and enhance the access ability and data transmission stability of downlink equipment.
Advantage 6: rich interfaces. It supports 4G, 5g, Ethernet, USB and other interfaces, and also supports RS485, RS232 and reserved GNSS through the expansion card; it supports rich software and hardware interfaces, and can adapt to the complex protocol types in the industrial environment, and provides standard security protection.
