In recent years, the demand for warehousing services has surged, driven by factors like the pandemic and the booming e-commerce sector. To meet this demand while staying competitive, companies are increasingly turning to private LTE and 5G wireless networks, ushering in a new era of smart warehouses.
Smart warehouses leverage LTE and 5G networks to gather, analyze, and act upon real-time data across their operations. This data empowers staff to monitor equipment and machinery from anywhere globally, using predictive analytics and artificial intelligence to foresee potential issues or breakdowns.
These networks act as superhighways, facilitating seamless data transmission from the warehouse to servers where it’s transformed into actionable insights. Devices such as smartphones, IIoT sensors, and autonomous vehicles continuously stream valuable data, enhancing processes and decision-making.
For instance, 5G offers predictable bandwidth, extensive coverage, and high speeds, supporting autonomous robotics in making real-time decisions and navigating warehouses without incident.
The next evolution of LTE warehouses involves companies owning and operating their private LTE networks. Unlike sprawling public cellular networks mainly catering to consumers, private wireless networks provide complete control and management to the warehouse. This translates to enhanced security, seamless app integration, and precise control over network traffic and resources.
