What changes 5G will bring for IoT?

5G mobile technology will soon be available, bringing the promise of compelling new uses cases and capabilities to transform industrial IoT. But how will 5G impact networking architecture for industrial environments?

What is 5G?

5G is the fifth-generation mobile technology designed to support higher broadband throughput, ultra-reliable and low-latency communication. Providing multiple access technologies, new core functions, and greater network management controls, 5G will enable diverse use cases and business models for companies across many industries such as manufacturing, transportation, utilities, oil & gas, public safety and more.

What benefits 5G bring us?

Expanding network capabilities

One of the key benefits of 5G is “network slicing,” which will allow businesses to get different levels of connectivity (from ISP) to accommodate multiple use cases. 5G slices will be based on the three primary use case categories:

  • Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB): eMBB provides higher bandwidth and higher speeds for everything from smart city applications and stadiums, to streaming infotainment in cars and planes, to seamless cloud services and fleet management telematics for safety and diagnostics.
  • Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication (uRLLC): uRLLC supports real-time, mission-critical communications such as autonomous driving, industrial robotics automation, and emergency disaster response and location services. The tactile response time is expected to be less than 1 millisecond.
