Jio Is In Talks To Create A Captive Private 5G Network For Tesla In India
Financial Express reported that Reliance Jio is in talks with Tesla to create a captive private 5G network for its factory. The talks are in the preliminary stages, and further developments are expected to occur only when Tesla confirms its plans to establish a manufacturing unit in India.
A Jio executive stated that 5G is focused on enterprise connectivity, and the company is reaching out to firms in the automobile, healthcare, manufacturing, and other industries.
This captive private 5G network would facilitate faster speeds and provide high data-carrying capacity within the company’s premises, which public networks cannot deliver.
These solutions would enable companies to benefit from Industry 4.0, which represents the next revolution in the manufacturing business. Industry 4.0 relies on cyber-physical systems that utilize modern control systems, embedded software systems, and internet connectivity through the Internet of Things (IoT).
The Internet of Things allows for the connection of various items or things to the Internet and facilitates data exchange between them and other devices and systems.
According to a previous report, Tesla is considering manufacturing in India and has altered its approach by no longer emphasizing the earlier demand for lower import duties on completely built units, which currently stand at 100% for cars priced at $40,000 and above.
