In the last year, construction of manufacturing plants has risen significantly, with battery assembly, EV chargers, semiconductors, and sustainable products leading the way with new facilities breaking ground. This increased activity in the U.S. combined with some legislative wins for manufacturers, including the CHIPS and Science Act and the Inflation Reduction Act means that many manufacturers are now making decisions about what type of connectivity to include in new plants.  

Join us and Verizon to discuss our latest report, which highlights how a combination of connectivity solutions is going to be the right answer moving forward. Learn what decision factors are essential when evaluating which connection type should be implemented for each use case as well as get the pros and cons of connectivity options for new greenfield factories, retrofitting existing factories, and IoT devices. Hear how wireless technologies such as 5G and private networks can meet the increasing connectivity demands of the modern factory and how your company can gain a competitive advantage.
