Analysis of 5G Cellular Network and 802.11 for Industrial Automation

University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

Abstract: Wireless communication nowadays is playing a vital role in real-life data transmission. This communication can be machine-to-machine or human to machine communication. In each of these categories, reliability and low latency data transmission are critical factors of success transmission in case the number of devices in a certain area increases. In this thesis, I mainly investigate on smart manufacturing point of view. The Main aim is to measure the best suitable wireless technology that can satisfy the requirements for smart manufacturing. The most recent wireless communication known as 5G has the potential to support both accuracy and low latency communication. In this thesis, three main parts have been introduced. The rst part introduces a scenario which can illustrate main use cases of wireless technologies in industrial manufacturing. The second is to establish a method for statistical analyze in the latest generation of cellular network enabling comparison with IEEE 802.11AC latest version. Without a tunneling technique introduced in the method chapter industrial protocol such as Pronet cannot be transmitted over a wireless medium. Packet structures and several features in each technology are being considered which in fact directly in uence latency and reliability. Each wireless technology will be reviewed theoretically and practically. The result of this comparison will be given. 5G introduces special features such as diversity in time, space and frequency. 5G also introduces a exible packet structure that directly enhances the ultra reliable and low latency data transmission.
