Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies are poised to transform many industry verticals including healthcare, retail, automotive, and transport. Initially focusing on improving existing processes and augmented current infrastructure, IIoT will evolve to encompass next generation methods and procedures such as "teleoperation" (operation of a machine at a distance), tele-robotics, and other areas that rely upon interface and control of real objects by virtual objects.
5G New Radio (NR) access technology is a part of 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) architecture that is composed of LTE evolution and NR technology that will be operable from sub-1 GHz to 24+ GHz in a range of low band, mid band, and high band. For communication service providers, mmWave will bring both challenges and opportunities for general RAN infrastructure and in particular for private IIoT networks for industrial automation and mission critical services for enterprise across many industry verticals. In addition to direct services mobile network operator services, there will be opportunities for Virtual Network Operator (VNO) IoT Service Providers.
This research evaluates IIoT technologies, companies, applications, services, and solutions. Report forecasts include overall global and regional IIoT outlook as well as IIoT by industry vertical, software, hardware, and services for the period 2017 to 2022. This research also evaluates 5G NR and the market outlook for MNO and VNO to offer private IoT networks for the benefit of industrial automation and mission critical enterprise applications and services. The report evaluates major players, technologies, and solutions. The report also assesses market challenges, opportunities, and the overall outlook for 5G NR equipment and components.
