Equinox has published its forecasts on how the new 5G connectivity standard is intended to redefine the automotive sector and its digital infrastructure.

The analysis sheds light on how Oem and mobile operators are adapting their digital infrastructure and using partner ecosystems to exploit the full potential of 5G, such as progress in the linked guide and new data-driven services.

The extensive global presence of Equinox in over 60 markets, and its position as a leader as a meeting place and meeting place for an automotive ecosystem connected globally with OEM, Tier 1 system manufacturers, Autotech companies, over 1800 service providers of

To advance 5G, mobile operators and participants in the future mobility ecosystem will transform their digital infrastructure and cooperate within shared ecosystems

5G has the potential to make important progress, not only for the automotive sector, but for all future mobility. However, a high level of interoperability and openness is needed to realise this potential. Traditional OEMs, Tier 1 system manufacturers and components are expected to abandon an increasingly sophisticated IT architecture in silos and centralized in favour of a collaborative and dynamic approach based on data sharing and collaboration with colleagues in the sector, through consortia

Equinox expects that, with the introduction of 5G, participants in the future mobility ecosystem, including mobile operators, will adapt their digital infrastructures, placing greater emphasis on direct and private interconnection and participation in a digital automotive ecosystem bringing together the

This expected growth in private connectivity is also supported by Volume 4 of the Global Interconnect Index (GXI), a market study recently published by Equinix, which provides that the installed private interconnection bandwidth capacity globally in the telecommunications sector

To promote collaboration between suppliers and accelerate the development of complex 5G use cases, Equinox launched a new 5G and Edge Proof of Concept Center (POCC) at its Infomart Campus in Dallas, Texas The POCC will provide a 5G and edge…andbox environment allowing mobile network operators, cloud platforms, technology providers and businesses to connect directly with the largest data center edge and ecosystems platform located at Equinox This allows participants in the future ecosystem to test, demonstrate and accelerate complex 5G and edge distribution and interoperability scenarios that can also be applied to the automotive sector.

Data management capabilities are approaching the edge. 5G will lead to a huge increase in data in the automotive sector. For advanced connected cars, data flow is estimated to reach 1 GB per vehicle per day. A further explosion of up to 1 TB of data per vehicle is expected by 2025 per month, with the increase in functionality. This creates the need for significantly greater bandwidth and faster data processing capabilities for end users and mobile devices at the digital edge. In addition, the new 5G standard has a smaller range than 4G due to the higher radio frequencies that require operators to implement multiple radio equipment, optical capabilities and network aggregation points, to cover the same geographical area. Equinox expects a significant increase in local edge computing capabilities.

Starting from densely connected urban centres, where digital infrastructures are enabled, the 5G roll-out will increase the functionality of …Multi-access edge computing (MEC) that bring cloud at the digital edge This improves application performance, reliability and overall network efficiency. The large data centres of interconnection and colocation play a central role in this area, as they provide network service providers with direct and secure interconnection and aggregation points between 5G network nodes. This allows 5G operators to reduce the use of smaller edge locations, thus minimizing initial investments.

5G will advance V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) technologies, allowing connected driving and smart city applications.

5G will allow major progress in the V2X technology area, enabling vehicles to communicate with other vehicles, pedestrians and the infrastructure that manages roads, traffic and l’IT. This communication will lead to safer and less congested roads, with a better driving experience.

5G will play a key role for connected vehicles, providing broadband connectivity for over-the-air updates, data transmission between vehicles and smart services, which are key to automotive. By 2025, V2X functionalities for vehicles and infrastructure will gain momentum on the market, and implementation is expected to start at the end of 2020. With a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28%; the size of the V2X market is expected to reach a volume of more than 30 billion dollars by 2035.[2]

Equinox expects this development to begin in densely interconnected urban centres with sufficient edge computing capabilities. To realise the benefits of V2X and smart cities’ use cases, an open and neutral infrastructure is needed that interconnects participants in the future mobility ecosystem, network and digital service providers and other components of the city’s infrastructure. This will allow vehicles to share data and effectively analyse the surrounding area and motorists.

5G will create new data-driven business opportunities for OEMs, especially in the area of entertainment and smart services. While in the past car manufacturers have concentrated largely on engineering improvements, the switch to CASE (connected, autonomous, shared and electric) vehicles accelerated by the expansion of 5G, is causing car manufacturers to rethink By 2023, McKinsey expects 46% of the growth in automotive turnover from digital services. According to the Global Tech Trends Survey 2019-20 of Equinox, 36% of Italian IT managers say that 5G will have a greater impact on their business, allowing the development of new products.

5G is the first generation of mobile/wireless communications built to manage advanced business services. It is able to support significantly higher data transmission speeds, lower latency, multiple connected devices at the same time, better mobility, as well as improved energy efficiency of the network. This paves the way for OEMs to invest in cutting-edge digital services, including advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS), high definition infotainment (HD) and augmented and/or virtual reality (AR/VR), as well as mobility services such as the s

To increase potential turnover and allow new low latency services, 5G operators and OEMs will use partner ecosystems within data centres. These include ecosystems around the digital business, network peering, mobile and emerging IoT, as well as the major hyperscale offers.

5G will advance automotive production, allowing large-scale use of complex IIoT applications: in addition to the benefits for drivers, 5G should also transform automotive production and automotive segment.

The collection and analysis of data through IoT devices, combined with the higher transmission speeds of 5G, will allow greater visibility throughout the production process. Connected sensors allow manufacturers to get significant insights from real-time interactions between machines, systems, resources and objects.

Starting from the implementation of a 5G private network campus, Equinox expects OEMs to use 5G more and more to implement complex IIoT and automotive use cases. This includes predictive maintenance, which can significantly reduce operational expenses and downtime. Lupin IoT can also be used to monitor the automotive supply chain, optimizing the efficient use of equipment. Finally, 5G should advance the use of robotics in automotive assembly lines, allowing the optimized monitoring and use of IoT sensor data, resulting in greater precision and cost reduction.

To work together and provide better insights, these devices will need to be dynamically integrated with digital networks, clouds and ecosystems through fast, secure and low latency interconnection. OEMs can leverage direct interconnection to connect with emerging IoT ecosystems and major cloud providers, enabling them to accelerate innovations to advance connected, intelligent and sustainable mobility
