Wireless extension of a PROFINET network via 5G


Am 18. May 2022 veröffentlicht

Today, PROFINET is a widely used open standard in automation technology. With VXLAN technology (virtual extensible LAN), PROFINET communication can now also take place via a 5G network.

This allows, for example, a central controller to communicate wirelessly with several decentralized I/O modules on different mobile or distributed participants. The use case is displayed in a playful way, users can prove their skills in a wireless skill game. The game is based on the latest SCALANCE 5G routers and communication takes place via the prototype of a private 5G network from Siemens.
