6 Ways 5G Will Change the IoT Solutions Space

August 15, 2019 / KAYLA MATTHEWS

Why is 5G one of the most anxiously awaited technologies in recent memory, and why is it so geopolitically consequential? Because 5G has the potential to change the world.Between 2018 and 2025, operators and investors will bet about $1 trillion globally on 5G becoming the de-facto wireless communication standard worldwide. This bet is certainly a safe one for multiple reasons, and many of them have to do with the changes that 5G heralds for the Internet of Things. The promised 100-fold increases in speed — although considerable — won’t be the only obvious way 5G improves current-generation protocols.You can think of 5G as a kind of next-generation Wi-Fi. You’re used to using a central router in your home or workplace that sends out radio waves to any devices in the vicinity so that they can use Wi-Fi to connect to the internet. Desktops, laptops, telephones, smart home devices, watches, bathroom scales, refrigerators and all our other internet-connected items currently use these routers to function.
