Digital transformation is coming to a warehouse near you. In fact, it may already be in place. Consider this: there were 4,000 robotic warehouses in operation worldwide last year. By 2025, four million commercial robots will be at work in 50,000 warehouses across the globe, forecasts say. That’s a 12-fold increase in the span of just six years. The key to the success for a smart warehouse? Not the robots. Or the management systems. It’s connectivity that is making the industrial internet of things (IIoT) a reality on a massive scale. 4G LTE and 5G networks are up to the task.
