Introduction to IoT and 5G Training

In the simplest terms, the Internet of Things (IoT) is how we describe the digitally connected universe of everyday physical devices.

These devices are embedded with internet connectivity, sensors and other hardware that allow communication and control via the web.

The IoT time has come because the 5G era is now here. In other words, 5G is the foundation for realizing the full potential of IoT.

Significant operator investment in 5G technology, spectrum and infrastructure, together with the implementation of global standards, are also helping to drive growth and increase market interest in the IoT.

5G provides a range of benefits to the IoT which were not available with 4G or other technologies. These include 5G’s ability to support a massive number of static and mobile IoT devices, which have a diverse range of speed, bandwidth and quality of service requirements.

Powered by 5G technology, the IoT has become one of the most important technologies of the 21st century. Now that we can connect everyday objects—kitchen appliances, cars, thermostats, baby monitors—to the internet via embedded devices, seamless communication is possible between people, processes and things.

By means of low-cost computing, the cloud, big data, analytics and mobile technologies, physical things can share and collect data with minimal human intervention. In this hyperconnected world, digital systems can record, monitor, and adjust each interaction between connected things.

In other words, the physical world meets the digital world—and they cooperate.

With cloud-based IoT applications, business users can quickly enhance existing processes for supply chains, customer service, human resources and financial services. There’s no need to recreate entire business processes.

The ability of IoT to provide sensor information as well as enable device-to-device communication is driving a broad set of applications, which can provide important features, such as:

  • Creating new efficiencies in manufacturing through machine monitoring and product-quality monitoring.
  • Improving the tracking and “ring-fencing” of physical assets.
  • Using wearables to monitor human health analytics and environmental conditions.
  • Driving efficiencies and new possibilities in existing processes.
  • Enabling business process changes.

Understanding what the IoT is and what it can do is important for organizations and agencies to be successful.

IoT presents both operators and industries with a fertile ground for innovations and new ways of engaging their end customers. Key success factors will be the ability to launch new services with a short time-to-market from idea to commercial offering combined with the right business models and access to a rich array of complementary offerings from ecosystem partners.

Ultimately what makes the Internet of things especially exciting is that we don’t yet know the exact use cases or just exactly how it has the potential to have a major impact on our lives.
