ZTE releases 5G-based Industrial Field Network Whitepaper to empower critical industrial productions


Bangkok, Thailand, November 16, 2023 – ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a global leading provider of information and communication technology solutions, has released 5G-based Industrial Field Network Whitepaper at the 2023 Analyst Conference, marking its first launch of an industry production site empowered by 5G for overseas markets. 


This whitepaper aims to provide a full range of capabilities for scenarios in the production and manufacturing fields in response to the strong demands for low latency, low jitter, and high reliability. Additionally, the whitepaper is designed to address the rapid iteration and changes that occur in commodity production by providing a series of solutions for network and computing integration, service guarantee, and all-round “self-serving” capabilities, to help promote the deepening of 5G applications in industrial field networks and empower the intelligent transformation of production domains.


The typical applications of the current industrial Internet are facing the challenge of information isolated islands caused by the digitization of “single-point” business, and the traditional IT and OT networks of enterprises have formed invisible “walls,” which hinder the digital transformation of production in enterprises. Currently, under the trend of “fully connected factories,” this whitepaper has been developed. It combines the project practices of ZTE, operators, and industry partners to present a detailed construction plan for factory-level, workshop-level, and production-line-level 5G private networks to industry customers. 


The whitepaper conducts in-depth research on the needs of typical industry production scenarios, such as flexible production in the 3C (Computer, Communication, Consumer) manufacturing industry, unmanned cranes in the steel industry, and remote control of gantry cranes in ports. The whitepaper identifies key capabilities required for 5G industrial on-site networks in production scenarios, encompassing:


Comprehensive 5G Solutions: Integration of computing power and 5G connectivity, provides the flexibility of on-site 3rd party application deployment.


Service Guarantee: Low latency, high bandwidth, and high reliability to meet production requirements.


Enterprise Self-Serving Capability: Simplified 5G private network planning, debugging, and maintenance.



The whitepaper proposes distinct 5G field network deployment modes—Independent and Integrated—to align with the diverse production characteristics of various industries. It offers tailored solutions covering:


The whitepaper highlights ZTE’s tangible successes alongside industry partners. Notable achievements include the cloudification and networking of production equipment in the Nanjing Binjiang Factory’s automated production line upgrade project, leveraging computing network solutions for enhanced efficiency. Additionally, the Wuhan Iron and Steel Corporation’s unmanned crane achieved unmanned remote control solutions through end-to-end reliability solutions.


The whitepaper showcases ZTE’s unique prowess in industrial field networks, offering end-to-end product and service solutions encompassing terminals, networks, clouds, and industries. Leveraging integrated computing and network services, ZTE enables streamlined and efficient digital transformation for industry customers. This support empowers businesses to effectively harness 5G technology, fostering innovation in new scenarios and models within the ‘5G+ Industrial Internet’ framework. 


The whitepaper, available for detailed insights, signifies ZTE’s commitment to exploring diverse domains and processes in industrial production, facilitating the transformation of traditional industries for improved quality, reduced costs, increased efficiency, and advancements in green development.
