The commercial implementation and operation of 5G will bring many important benefits to the ICT industry. One of them will be the huge Internet of Things (IoT), which refers to the ability to deploy and operate IoT systems on a very large scale. As the size of IoT systems increases, their reach will also increase in terms of the impact on corporate systems and the daily lives of users. 5G will optimize IoT networks by managing radio frequencies that meet the needs of both narrowband IoT applications and those that require a larger bandwidth, which can be on demand.

IoT solutions will benefit greatly from the deployment of 5G, as mobile providers deploy low-power WAN (LPWAN) networking capabilities. The initial implementations of IoT LPWAN were non-cellular solutions based on patented technologies. However, the author sees emerging standards such as Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), which play a dominant role for some IoT applications. We are seeing many verticals in the industry willing to pay a premium over non-cellular LPWAN, improved flexibility and improved IoT capabilities in 5G networks. The use of 5G for industrial IoT (IIoT) networks, in particular, will be of great importance for the company’s IIoT in certain industries such as agriculture, logistics and manufacturing. For example, we see that IIoT in agriculture uses the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in 5G networks due to ultra-low latency and high capacity availability.

Co-located with 5G, Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) will facilitate a whole new class of low-power devices for IoT networks and systems. These devices will rely on MEC processing equipment. In other words, some IoT devices will be very lightweight in terms of computing, relying on endpoints for most of their computing needs. MEC is also important for 5G for non-IoT applications such as support for improved mobile broadband (ultra-fast high-definition video, improved web browsing, etc.) and applications that depend on ultra-reliable low-latency communications ( (Virtual reality, UAV operation), autonomous vehicles, robotics, etc.).

The “things” about IoT range from devices used to detect, trigger, signal, engage, and more. IoT things also include everything from gateways, modules and sensors to hardware and firmware in products and equipment and other consumer, corporate and industrial assets. The IoT ecosystem can easily become very cumbersome with so many different “things” to consider as part of the provision, activation, administration, and other management functions of the IoT. Accordingly, there is an urgent need for managed service solutions to support the provision, administration, maintenance and security.
