Looking at the future of IoT, it’s clear that the networks of billions of devices are going to place major demands on connectivity technologies. Standards may very well be the key that unlocks interoperability, security and growth for network operators, vendors and businesses that are driving this nascent industry forward.Perhaps that’s why respondents to a recent survey, published by GSMA’s Mobile World Live, ranked standards-based technology, such as 4G and 5G cellular, as the leading contributors to IoT development and long-term growth. According to the white paper, we can see how the mobile industry is preparing to take advantage of cellular technologies to support massive machine-type communications (mMTC) and ultra-reliable low-latency communications, considered to be key components of the evolving IoT.
