Spectrum Implications of 5G & IoT Requirements and Technologies
Recent years have witnessed unprecedented growth in mobile data communication facilitated by advances innovated through 4G. The trend will continue through proliferating data hungry services and users’ expectations in experiencing even higher quality of experience while on the move.
In addition, the emerging IoT segment will drive a significant increase in the number of connected devices across a range of vertical markets including health, education, heavy industry, and transportation.
This new connectivity paradigm will require a network with capabilities that extend far beyond those of its current generation. This network of future – 5G - is currently under development attracting various sectors in defining/developing what it should be capable of. Underpinning requirements for 5G are Enhanced Mobile Broadband, Massive IoT, and Mission Critical Communication which complement and compete with each other.
