    This paper introduces the practical measurements regarding delay, jitter and throughput committed in conjunction with the remote control demonstrator development using 5G test network. The results gathered from the extensive evaluation using the 5G, LTE-A and WLAN wireless technologies not only strengthen the remote control demonstrator test bed, but also validate the improved 5G performance suitable for remote operations. The measurements using the first prototype of 5G radio technology enable as low as 1 ms radio link delay reducing the delay significantly compared to current WLAN and LTE-A technologies. During the ongoing 5G standardization, automation and remote control systems are one of the use cases due to low delay networking in 5G, which enable a wide range of possibilities to operate from a distance. For better understanding and planning the transition from current wireless network technologies to 5G, it is essential to identify the current performance of the existing wireless network technologies especially in comparison to network delay that is a crucial factor in remote control scenarios.
