The flagship project Industrial Communication for Factories (IC4F) aims to develop secure, robust and real-time communication solutions for the manufacturing industry. By mid of 2020, 15 project partners from industry and research will develop a technology toolbox for a trustworthy industrial communications and computing infrastructure. Based on an open and cross-domain architecture the technology toolbox allows modular extension for new applications and communication technologies and enables users to select the right ICT technologies according to the new Industry 4.0 requirements and specific migration approaches. The modular toolbox will include key technologies such as 5G, multi-access edge computing (MEC), cloud computing, virtualization, as well as industrial monitoring and analytics.
