IOT RELATION AND IMPACT ON 5G
The Internet of Things is projected to consist of 50 billion devices by 2020 [2] ranging from connected temperature sensors to autonomous vehicles. The vast scope of different device types from different verticals corresponds with highly diverse requirements for the communication infrastructure. While battery-driven sensors need a highly energy efficient communication technology, industrial IoT applications call for ultra-reliable connections with a minimum latency. As of today these diverse requirements are covered by several wireless communication technologies (e.g. (Wireless Local Access Network) WLAN, Sigfox®, ZigBee, LoRa Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN), Narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT)) which all have their specific strengths and weaknesses and that are making the Internet of Things somewhat of a “rag rug”.
