The combination of fifth generation (5G) cellular and cloud technologies will provide substantial capacity, flexibility, and functionality richness to mobile network operator Internet of Things (IoT) service offerings. 5G and cloud services (centralized and edge computing) will allow carriers to compete against non-cellular IoT network providers in a manner in which they cannot replicate.
Higher bandwidth services, coupled with roaming and multi-access connectivity will afford cellular Communication Service Providers (CSP) with a major advantage as 5G begins commercial deployment and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) deployments accelerate. 5G IoT services supported by MEC will also enable CSPs to significantly surpass the capabilities of non-cellular providers, particularly Low Power WAN (LPWAN) technologies recently deployed. For example, CSPs will be able to offer mission-critical IoT services that non-cellular IoT networks will not be able to replicate.
