Whilst the Fifth Generation (5G) mobile networks are being deployed worldwide, the adoption of this next-generation networking paradigm by the vertical businesses such as the 4th industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) sectors is lagging. One of the empirical barriers for the verticals to embrace 5G rapidly is the lack of easy-to-access platforms that facilitate cost-efficient deployment of their Network Applications (NetApps) to create end-to-end services. This paper presents a novel and realistic NetApp platform to remove this barrier, thereby speeding up the smooth vertical businesses' transition to 5G and beyond networks. Particularly, the paper provides a vision and insights on an innovative Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based Industry 4.0 NetApp to cast lights on how 5G NetApps can help shape the resultant new business models and open new business opportunities. In this case, the NetApp is able to improve the results by detecting intruders in real time and reducing the delay of detection by 226 ms (38%).
