5G mmWave technology from companies like Nokia and Qualcomm Technologies, we can provide our customers with the leading-edge capabilities of high performance, ultra-low latency 5G and offer an even wider range of communications services to enhance their wireless experience.” Tommi Uitto, president of mobile networks, Nokia, said: “These results demonstrate what 5G mmWave will bring to consumers, enterprises and industries. By extending the distance for 5G mmWave technology without sacrificing speed or latency, we

will deliver an incredible 5G experience to even more areas. We are proud to work with our partners on this important and significant achievement. This is another milestone in the development of 5G services and demonstrates the capacity of our commercially deployed 5G solutions.” *Actual testing results Line-of-sight testing: 11.14km, downlink 748Mbps, uplink 56.78Mbps

Bosch opens wafer fab of the future in Dresden

Fully connected, controlled by artificial intelligence. Chancellor Merkel: „The new Bosch wafer fab will boost our capacity in microelectronics.“ Bosch CEO Denner: “With

“The new Bosch wafer fab will boost our capacity in microelectronics.

Microelectronics is the basis for nearly every promising technology, for applications of artificial intelligence, for quantum computing, and for automated and connected driving – which is also a Bosch specialty,” said Federal Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel. “The new wafer fab is the single largest

our first AIoT factory, we are setting new standards in chip production.” EU Commissioner Vestager: “Semiconductors will help strengthen Europe’s


competitiveness as a cradle for cutting-edge innovations.” Minister-President Michael Kretschmer: “The new wafer fab is good for Europe, for Germany, and for Saxony.” Artificial intelligence will create a sound basis for data-driven, continuous improvement in production, as well as for fast production rollouts. The first chips for Bosch power tools will roll off the production line in July – six months earlier than planned. At roughly one billion euros, the new manufacturing facility is the biggest single investment in Bosch’s more than 130-year history. It is planned that 700 people will work in the facility once it is completed. Fully connected, data-driven, self-optimizing: in Dresden, Bosch is opening one of the world’s most modern wafer fabs. Highly automated, fully connected machines and integrated processes, combined with methods of artificial intelligence (AI) will make the Dresden plant a smart factory and a trailblazer in Industry 4.0. In the virtual presence of Federal Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel, EU Commission Vice-President Margrethe Vestager, and Saxony’s Minister-President Michael Kretschmer, the high-tech facility was officially inaugurated on June 7, 2021.

investment in the company’s history. This cannot be stressed too much. Its size and additional production capacity alone are impressive. The very latest methods of data-driven continuous improvement in production make the Dresden plant a smart factory. To put it another way: in this plant, natural and artificial intelligence have joined forces with the internet of things to form a productive symbiosis.” “The state-of-the-art technology showcased at the new Dresden wafer fab is a great example of what public and private European actors can achieve when they join their efforts. Semiconductors will contribute to the development of industries like transportation, manufacturing, clean energy, and healthcare –where Europe excels. It will help strengthen Europe’s competitiveness as a cradle for cutting-edge innovations,” said Margrethe Vestager, EU Commission Vice- President. “For Bosch, semiconductors are a core technology, and it is strategically important to develop and manufacture them ourselves. In Dresden, with the help of artificial intelligence, we will take semiconductor manufacturing to the next level,” said Dr. Volkmar Denner, chairman of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH. “This is our first AIoT factory: fully
