Applications Enabled by a Deterministic Wireless Communication System Such as Industrial LTE
Abstract— Current industrial communication systems rely heavily on communication cables to transmit
information and control signals. Wireless networks are emerging on the factory level with non-real-time
requirements. The needed cable for deterministic real-time communication hinders the development and
deployment of various applications in the production environment. Some of these applications might be an
integral part in solving the challenges of future production. Along with a description of a wireless
communication system, various examples for enabled applications are presented in this paper.
