KT to offer 5G smart factory for manufacturers

KT will begin smart factory services, powered by its fifth-generation (5G) network and other information and communications technologies, to help the manufacturing industry increase business efficiency and competitiveness. 

The firm said in a news conference in Seoul that it plans to release smart factory-related products including collaborative robots, a machine vision system and smart factory control system FactoryMakers within the third quarter of the year.  

"Domestic manufacturing companies have been insufficiently competitive with the exception of some conglomerates," said Lee Yong-gyoo, a senior vice president who heads KT's 5G platform development unit. "5G will be a steppingstone to improve the competitiveness of the nation's manufacturing industry."

According to a report by the KT Economic Management Research Institute, 5G will create value worth 15.6 trillion won ($13 billion) for the manufacturing business by 2030.
