Will 5G be the Answer to the Internet of Things?
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. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a prime example of how wireless is driving innovation across nearly every industry. From self-driving and connected cars to smart city development to innovations in the delivery of healthcare – IoT is creating impactful solutions for today’s consumers. Join us to discuss how IoT and the next generation of wireless – 5G – are poised to transform how Americans live, work, and play.
