The rollout is in tandem with the development of Industry 4.0, increasing the number of vulnerable online endpoints and the risk of cyberattacks. Engineers must be diligent about creating safer systems through risk management plans and promoting a cyber-secure culture.

The latest trends and updates to the technological standard are assembled in a one-stop hub for engineers to gain knowledge about every aspect of 5G. As it continues transforming various parts of our lives, the company partners with leading manufacturers to curate articles, blogs, eBooks, and products to build a fast and reliable connected world. In one of its instalments of their 'Empowering Innovation Together' series, experts delve into the benefits private 5G networks bring to Industrial IoT, such as lower latency and machine-to-machine communication.

The company stocks the industry's widest selection of electronic components and network products, including the following solutions for 5G applications:

The QPB9380 dual-channel switch-LNA module from Qorvo is an RF FEM that integrates a two-stage LNA and a 20W power-handling switch in a dual-channel configuration. The devices operate across the 2.3GHz to 5GHz frequency range and provide a 1dB noise figure in a 6mm2 compact package. Typical applications include 5G radio, small cell BTS, and wireless infrastructure.

FP90 4x4 MiMo antennas from TE Connectivity/Laird External Antennas are future-proofed against 4G and 5G frequency rollouts up to 7125MHz. These antennas provide multiple connector options for all major vehicular gateways and routers. With IP67 ingress protection, they have an operating temperature range of -40C to 85C and customisable connector, cable length, and port configurations. The antennas are designed for various automotive applications, from public transport to emergency services.

The SNYPER-5G Graphyte (GL) spectrum analyser by Siretta is a high-performance, multi-language network signal analyser and cellular signal logger. This device is designed to survey the 5G NR, 4G LTE, LTE-M, NB-IoT, and 2G/GSM networks. Typical applications include evaluating the 'preferred' network operators' performance, determining optimum antenna placement, and enhancing cellular surveying of new and existing installations.

The RUTX50 industrial 5G router from Teltonika is a multi-network industrial device facilitating 5G mobile communication for high-speed and data-heavy applications. The router combines 5G technology with various interfaces and industrial hardware features, resulting in future upgrade/expansion adaptability. It has a 5G dual SIM cellular communication merged with 5-Gigabit Ethernet ports and dual-band Wi-Fi, enabling ultra-low latency data transfer. Compatible with the RMS, the router is optimised for remote management and monitoring capabilities of large fleets of devices.

Molex's 5G25 RF flex-to-board connectors offer a shield design that supports high-frequency signals up to 25 GHz. These connectors allow designers of RF antenna modules and mobile devices to combine RF and non-RF signals, reducing the need for additional connectors. The 5G25 connectors are suited to consumer, industrial, medical, and defence applications.
