In a 5G enabled smart factory, machines, and sensors connect to an on-prem edge cloud which can be a cloud native platform that allows downloading innovative apps for key use-cases such as machine learning, digital twinning, quality control, and digital surveillance. In this talk, Anurag presents the network architecture of a smart factory with randomly placed machines that have 5G based radio access to send packets from their sensors to the edge platform and then describes the process flow to deploy cloud native edge applications to implement Industry 4.0 use-cases using open source and other freely available software tools, programmable stacks and platform ingredients. He shows how to partition the applications into microservices as consumers and producers, link them through publisher and subscriber primitives and chain to other functions or application controllers whether PLC or Operations Management and finally how a programmable Infrastructure shares value creation and reduces TCO.
