Year 2020 will be a key date for the deployment of the fifth generation of mobile networks, the 5G, whose capabilities promise to change the way we understand the Internet today. But 5G is much more than just fast downloads; its unique combination of high-speed connectivity, very low latency, and ubiquitous coverage will support smart vehicles and transport infrastructure such as connected cars, trucks, and buses.
All this will facilitate the implementation of the internet of things. By increasing the number of devices that can be managed in real time and remotely, as well as the response time of the network, the capabilities of multiple industrial applications will be revolutionized. In this way, 5G will have a key role to play- not just in the evolution of communication but in the evolution of businesses and society as a whole. Here is a look at a few industries where 5G and IoT together can benefit:
- Self-driving cars.
- Smart cities.
