IoT Alliance comment:
“The 5G evolution of mobile connectivity will accelerate digital transformation in ways we can only imagine. The impact of 5G on IoT will be huge. If we are to realise the full benefits of IoT, we need 5G. The reason we need 5G is not so much about bandwidth, but simply the vast number of IoT devices which are expected to be deployed over the next decade. Whilst IoT devices and networks of today are all about small package of data and long battery life, the requirement for more real time data and consumer level devices and wearables, one of the real business drivers for 5G is actually IoT. MIT Technology Review have taken a deep dive look at the impact of 5G in Asia Pacific including New Zealand. There are significant references to IoT”.
