Fifth Generation (5G) cellular technologies and solutions are anticipated to make a substantial and positive impact on the Internet of Things (IoT). More specifically, Mind Commerce sees 5G allowing legacy Communication Service Providers (CSP) to leverage their investment in LTE evolution, 5G New Radio, and IoT assets to significantly surpass the capabilities of non-cellular providers, particularly Low Power WAN (LPWAN) technologies recently deployed both by CSPs and their competitors. This is seen as taking shape starting in the year 2020 and accelerating through 2025.
While LPWAN will continue to be a viable option for many relatively simple IoT applications across various industry verticals, cellular CSPs will leverage 5G to position themselves as the dominant providers of IoT services for enterprise. The reasons are many including improvements in scale and scope enabled by improved capacity, flexibility, and new capabilities. Mind Commerce sees 5G as a launch pad for CSPs to establish a dominate position for support of IoT apps and services in certain industry verticals, especially within an industrial setting. The Manufacturing sector will be an early beneficiary with many new IIoT apps and improved business models such as teleoperation.
