  A typical factory consists of several low functionality sensors. This work presents an architecture that can enhance the day-to-day operation of the site by combining modern IoT and legacy equipment and transforming the site for the 5G era. Operation and security of the site will benefit from the low latency the proposed Mobile Edge Computing architecture offers. Constant and uninterrupted monitoring makes preventive maintenance decisions even more accurate. Multitier architecture allows monitoring of each site to be performed locally without delays, while overall monitoring and control of remote sites is feasible as well.
