5G to Turbocharge IoT Growth – Fibocom 2021

5G is bringing new rich streaming services to the cell phone market, catering for massive increases in broadband use. At the same time, it is set to transform the IoT market, bringing both rich new data services as well as enabling huge new volumes of connected devices. While there is a natural limit to the number of smartphones one person needs, there are no such limits for IoT devices. IoT will be everywhere and 5G is set to make it happen. Pretty soon, there will be more connected cellular IoT devices than cell phones – and that’s just the beginning.

IoT’s mix of computing and communications technologies transforms data into real-time and historical information that can be disseminated throughout businesses and their ecosystem of partners and customers. 5G extends the reach of IoT functionality and enables devices to be deployed where they add the most value, including in high-risk environments. In addition, 5G further extends IoT’s promise of higher levels of automation and worker safety in the workplace, thereby increasing productivity and overall performance. 5G is the first mobile network generation that delivers wireline performance. It features a combination of three generic services: eMBB (enhanced Mobile Broad Band), uRLLC (ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications), and mMTC (massive Machine Type Communications).

Having three different services enables performance and functionality to align with the different communications requirements of IoT’s broad application portfolio. eMBB matches the high data rates, wide area coverage of data-driven use cases. mMTC supports high IoT device densities, the target being up to a million devices in one square kilometre. URLLC supports use cases that require ultra-reliable low latency communications such as industrial automation, remote driving and real-time control.
