Companies partner to utilise 5G for building automation

By Catrin Jones19 December 2022

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and Siemens Smart Infrastructure are working together to reimagine building automation by applying 5G private network (PN), based on the Snapdragon® X55 5G Modem-RF System in the Americas.

The partnership will be testing 5G PN use cases for efficient connection of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) assets that will help meet the growing customer needs around energy efficiency, reduced costs of ownership, increased security, and proactive maintenance. The companies hope that a collective effort will advance digitalization in building automation by developing new, more intelligent smart devices in the future.

Siemens says that it is developing use cases to explore how building automation can capitalize on the power of 5G high-speed data transmission, low latency, and greater capacity versus 4G.

Proof-of-concept (PoC) network architecture is built at the Siemens facilities in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, with the support of the Qualcomm Technologies’ Engineering Services Group. 

“We are proud of the collaboration with Siemens, bringing together its leadership in building automation, and our expertise in wireless and edge compute technologies. Our teams worked closely to successfully prove the automated building use case,” said Sebastiano Di Filippo, Senior Director, Business Development, Qualcomm Europe, Inc.

“Qualcomm Technologies’ platforms have the power to unlock huge potential across multiple sectors, driving the Connected Intelligent Edge – where billions of smart connected devices can be deployed and impact a multitude of industries.”

The Construction Technology Survey 2022 is a way to gather the technology trends and sentiment in the construction industry, organised by Construction Europe and International Construction magazine.

Construction businesses across the globe will be surveyed on their current use of technology and how they see this developing in the future. The survey takes just a couple of minutes to complete, with results treated anonymously and confidentially.

Once complete, results will be published in a white paper across all KHL construction sites.

The results provide readers with valuable insight into how technology is currently being used in the industry and its prospects for the future.
