Pushing the realm of IoT potential with 5G

5G networks bring significant benefits to consumers, community and the industry as it provides near zero latency, ultra-reliability, increased coverage and support for higher density of devices. Current internet of things (IoT) use cases can utilize the power of 5G to boost operations and efficiencies. While 5G adoption is still in its early stages, there is significant research, investment and trials across the globe to satisfy the near-term user demands.

This paper outlines unique IoT solution connectivity requirements such as range, reliability, latency, power consumption and throughput, and discusses how 5G will help realize the vision of seamlessly connected systems to deliver value to enterprise and consumers. It also provides a detailed commentary on how 5G-IoT will redefine current use cases and build new ones across several industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, mining and automotive.
