Will 5G be the Answer to the Internet of Things?

January 6, 2016 | USA

5G is envisioned as a wireless network that will deliver speeds of 20 Gbps, offer extremely low latency and connect billions of devices. In fact, most experts believe 5G will be the perfect backbone for the Internet of Things because it will bring together many disparate networks into one unified framework that combines short range communications such as RFID and Bluetooth with cellular technology and incorporates small cells and heterogeneous networks. In addition, 5G will likely use new spectrum in the high-frequency millimeter wave and microwave bands. What makes 5G particularly appealing for IoT, however, is that it will also make it possible to segment out low-bandwidth users and devices that don’t necessarily need the high data speeds and huge chunks of bandwidth to work. Instead these 5G ‘use cases’ just need a reliable connection that is interoperable with other IoT devices and networks.

The Internet of Things has become one of the market’s hottest trends. Use case-scenarios have begun developing and the incredibly broad applicability of a
very loosely-defined term has meant various industries are viewing IoT both as a huge opportunity, while simultaneously shrouded in mystery. This survey will aim to develop granular insight and analysis covering four specific areas of IoT, including industrial applications of IoT, cellular networking challenges,
network security and the use of cloud computing as an enabler for the Internet of Things. We’ll give an overview of the existing marketplace to begin the report.


OTHER PAST CONFERENCES

The Internet of Things International Forum

October 20-21, 2021 | USA

It supports the development of a worldwide interoperable Internet of Things, addressing technology barriers, business and societal challenges to create the conditions for a truly worldwide Internet of Things ecosystem and market. It does this through promoting international dialogue and cooperation on the Internet of Things between diverse actors from industry, research and government and across sectors.

5G Ecosystem and Private Networks Digital Symposium

October 19-21, 2021 | UK

5G moves into an exciting new phase of advanced use cases and rich possibilities for consumers and, increasingly, enterprises. To meet these demands, however, operators must invest in the network connectivity that will underpin 5G, for both today’s and tomorrow’s services. 5G Transport & Networking Strategies focuses on this critical topic and has been one of Light Reading’s fastest growing and most engaging live events.

IOT Solutions World Congress

October 5-7, 2021 | Spain

Nowadays we are facing a socio-technological change that will establish a new definition of the Industry and trade. Hence impacting in current business models. That’s why for the IOTSWC 2020 edition we are focusing in industrial customer demand instead of vendor-centric. It’s the place where end-users come to discuss their projects and where the discussion leads to sales for vendors.
