Wireless Router 5G and Starter Kit


The Wireless Router 5G is the first commercially available industrial 5G router optimized for industrial private networks to pass the CE conformance test. It supports Ericsson Industry Connect 5G networks and allows users to get started with 5G in their own location. A ready-made starterkit for test and evaluation of typical industrial use cases is also available.


The Wireless Router 5G has been extensively tested with the Ericsson Industry Connect 5G solution in standalone (SA) operation using band n78. It enables users to create a robust cellular connection in an industrial production environment. Supporting 4G and 5G cellular technology, it is an ideal communication solution for automated guided vehicles, AGVs, and other industrial machines.


HMS also offers a starterkit that is perfect for the evaluation of 5G and starting up a network with Ericsson Industry Connect. The Starterkit includes the Wireless Router 5G and two industrial IO-Link sensors sending data across the 5G network. This allows users to try out 5G in their own facilities without having to set up applications of their own from scratch.


Data from the sensors can be accessed using the Modbus TCP and MQTT protocols as well as in JSON format. There is also a web-based demo ready to show the sensor data across the 5G network in a regular browser.


Available now via HMS Labs
Initially, the router is available only to users of the Industry Connect system from Ericsson. Qualification of several other infrastructure providers and telecom operators is ongoing.
