5G is the latest iteration of wireless network connectivity. The Internet of Things (IoT) has become one of the most important sectors in the technology field, with potential large-scale applications for consumers and enterprise organisations. 5G promises to unlock IoT capabilities that were previously unattainable on 4G networks. 5G will introduce major innovations, like higher connection speed, greater capacity, and lower latency. Over time, these benefits will lead to technological milestones that will have a significant impact on business strategy.So, how will 5G transform enterprise IoT? Kumulos takes a look along with our friends at Oracle. At peak speed, 5G operates at 10Gbps. That’s 100 times the speed of current 4G networks, which top out at about 100Mbps. To put that into perspective, users will be able to download an entire HD movie in less than 10 seconds. A task that takes several minutes over a 4G connection.
