Introduction to 5G and IoT
5G and IoT – 5G will be able to support the Internet of Things (IoT) with massive connectivity and reliability. Longer battery life, improved security, and faster data transfer are some of the benefits of 5G that will pave the way for new technologies to enter our lives. A 5G network is a next-generation mobile telecommunications network. It will deliver life-enhancing applications in all sectors including healthcare, transportation, manufacturing and retail. With low latency and fast connection speeds, 5G will connect devices, machines and sensors at scale. IoT is a global connection of physical devices – embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity – to enable advanced services by interconnecting them to the internet or other networks. 5G is expected to provide an evolution of 4G with far greater speed, capacity and performance. The use of 5G in areas such as IoT will make the experience much better for people in their everyday lives. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a global revolution that is transforming all industries, economies, and sectors. It will enable connectivity and automation at every level: mobile networks, personal devices, homes, buildings and connected infrastructure, industrial systems, agriculture and energy supply. Many predictions see this market worth in excess of 30 Billion Euros by 2020! 5G promises to deliver the highest ever mobile data rates and ultra-broad coverage for IoT applications.
This session will explain what 5G is, how it will operate and the benefits it can deliver to users, including better performance and improved economics. I’ll also provide an overview of many different use cases in which 5G and IoT work well together. 5G is a promising technology that will bring the Internet of Things (IoT) to a whole new level. It’s designed to bring wireless communication speeds that are 10 or even 100 times faster than today’s 4G LTE networks. 5G promises to be much quicker than standard internet connections, making it ideal for uploading video and sharing pictures more efficiently.
This means you can download larger files in less time, which results in greater productivity for companies that rely on staying connected at all times (think emergency response teams, hospitals, and manufacturing facilities). The emergence of 5G and IoT has created an exponential leap in the capabilities of fixed and mobile networks. It will enable numerous business opportunities and generate new revenue streams by making it possible to achieve more with existing hardware investments, in ways that were not feasible using previous generations of wireless technology. 5G will completely transform the way we live and work, with major advances in applications such as artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, and autonomous vehicles. 5G is also likely to become a key enabler for the IoT – moving beyond connected cars to a myriad of devices that will monitor our environment, connect us to one another, and help us make better decisions. Of course, all this innovation will first require a fundamental change in how wireless networks are built. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC are all part of the Internet of Things (IoT). But they’re also all just a part. So what exactly is this thing that we call IoT? Like all things involving technology, it can be a bit complex, but in simple terms, it’s the ability to connect objects together in order to exchange data or establish communication between them. This new wave of connectedness will have massive implications for large corporations, small businesses and everyday consumers.
