5G for your Business
Secure mobile payments at events with 5G Slicing
Find out how EventPay uses 5G Slicing to ensure secure mobile payments at events and festivals. 5G Slicing segments the 5G network into virtual networks specifically tailored to the needs of customers and their applications.
Ready for the future
5G introduces new functions in the company's own infrastructure. Is your organization already getting ready for a future with 5G?

What is 5G?
5G is the successor to 4G. 5G enables super fast mobile internet. Proximus was the first 5G provider in Belgium with a 5G network. For 5G internet you need a device with a built-in 5G modem. The 5G applications are enormous. People are working hard on VR/AR and the development of self-driving cars. 6th NeTWorK offers in co-creation with Proximus Drone-as-a-Service whereby the 5G network is necessary.
- Very high speed mobile broadband
- Theoretical maximum speeds far higher than 4G
- Possible alternative to high-speed fixed broadband, when the latter is unavailable
- 5G traffic response time theoretically reduced to 1/1000th of a second
- Instantaneousness and reliability crucial for applications requiring an immediate response (virtual reality, autonomous transport, robotics, etc.)
5G will allow the network to be broken down into "slices" and assigned to specific applications such as emergency services during an event.
5G networks use little power when traffic is low, which reduces the power consumption of the antennas.
For the first time, RTBF has tested and used a private 5G network from Proximus NXT for live coverage of the Viva for Life programs, a charity campaign, very popular in the south of the country. The system, which complements a wired network, lays the foundations for a guaranteed connection ecosystem.
With the help of Mabo, we have connected an AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) to 5G. AGVs are flexible, and easily adapted to meet customer needs. They are accurate and precise and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are also safe, both for the operators working in the warehouse and for the products. For this type of application, very low latency and reliable coverage are required. 5G provides this connectivity.
PIT training is a virtual reality training for PIT nurses, the paramedical intervention team. This training allows teams to be trained without time or travel constraints. 5G allows the virtual reality goggles to be connected without latency and with fast bandwidth.
The Spot robot dog can help emergency teams access hard-to-reach places. Thanks to 5G Spot can be connected without interruption and with very low latency.
Hooyberghs and Mr. Watts
Mr. Watts has developed a digital application for building company Hooyberghs to visualize room layouts, floor plans, 3D models and digital twins to experience building designs on scale and in context.
The high bandwidth, low latency and strong security features of 5G provide the necessary stability to visualize the end result of a project, on site and remotely.
H.Essers is turning to vision technology and AI for image recognition. To optimize their annual wall-to-wall count, they developed a device that can be mounted on a reach truck, which knows the exact location in the warehouse and can thus automatically capture the barcodes of all the pallets in the warehouse. Such applications require a secure and fast network.
5G in public safety
Quick and appropriate intervention based on live images and data.
5G in transport and logistics
Why should you jump on the 5G express train?
Private 5G networks
A private site - for example a company or a production unit - can have its own, exclusively dedicated 5G network. A private 5G network combines:
- the unmatched performance of 5G in terms of speed and latency;
- the security of a private network for data flows.
The roll out of 5G will take place in different phases
Both end users and businesses will benefit from the unprecedented advantages of this new mobile technology.
