5G and its impact on the Internet of Things (IoT) is significant.
The IoT is rising as the number of connected devices is set to increase to 3.2 billion by 2023. While there are a number of factors contributing to this rise, one of the most important will be the development of 5G networks.
Bottom line: 5G brings evolutionary changes to the IoT.
With IoT-enabled devices in mind, 5G connects more devices at higher speeds and makes things like lag nearly non-existent. As a result, 5G creates an excellent user experience irrespective of what application, device or service you touch.
Massive cellular IoT technologies are characterized as a low-cost, low-power consumption solution. They thrive on deep and broad coverage indoors and outdoors. They deliver secure connectivity and authentication, are easy to deploy to any network topology and are designed for full scope scalability and capacity upgrades.
Businesses, city developers and other industrial organizations can connect more devices with better capability for much less — all with the power of 5G adaptability at their fingertips.
3GPP technologies like 5G help businesses expand the reach of their IT and OT networks across hard-to-reach areas and require both an easily scalable deployment strategy and architecture.
Early 5G applications have focused on enterprise and high-speed industrial networking, customer premise equipment (CPE), mobile computing, video broadcasting, and fixed wireless access (FWA).
As adoption grows with more network rollouts, they will evolve and be used to stream augmented reality and 3D video (which requires high bandwidth) and for critical communications like factory automation, UAVs and more.
Analysts expect 5G IoT to improve everyday users’ quality of life from personal application to fundamentally changing how we work and how we live.
With 5G IoT, facilities will continue improving to send critical upgrades to entire networks without freezing functionality, halting operations or overloading servers.
