High-performance 5G cellular router for industrial applications
12 October 2023
THE NEW 5G cellular router from Phoenix Contact, now in series production, provides high data rates in public and private 5G cellular networks. Equipped with a powerful processor and four Gigabit Ethernet ports, the TC router offers a high bandwidth for industrial applications.
This device makes it possible to monitor and maintain machines and systems via public and private 5G networks flexibly, remotely, and at high data rates. As the router with the highest throughout in the portfolio, it is particularly suitable for data-intensive industrial mobile communications applications, such as high-resolution video transmission, managing large AGVS (automated guided vehicle system) fleets, and for forwarding large files from mobile production machines.
Phoenix Contact has been involved in 5G technology for several years and is a founding partner, active participant, and board member of the 5G-ACIA (5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation). In addition, the company developed a first pilot router for private 5G networks back in 2020 and has successfully implemented it in customer projects.
