Emerging IoT Protocols: When to Select 5G or Wi-Fi 6
It’s unclear when the emerging protocols for high-speed voice and data transmission are going to flip the switch, but it is apparent the industrial IoT marketplace won’t adopt a single solution. From farming to self-driving cars and smart cities, the choice of 5G or Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) will ultimately be based on the cost of investment, geography and specific use cases, analysts said.The “new world” will have a much broader range of wireless and cellular technologies, according to Scott Raynovich, founder and chief analyst, Futuriom.com. “The point is,” he said, “you can pick the technology that’s going to be best suited to your application.”For industrial use cases, Raynovich said he sees most enterprises looking at “the new flavors” or categories along the 5G spectrum, including LTE-M, narrowband IoT and fixed broadband for their IoT protocols. “The advantage is 5G will have different characteristics and applications for different specifications,” Raynovich said.
