An article written by Nitin Dahad from EET India, with Antoine Bonnabel from Yole Développement (Yole) – While billions of devices are already connected, is the IoT fulfilling its true potential? How will 5G support its growth?
The internet of things (IoT) is often hyped up by device and network vendors as a solution for challenges in almost any industry today. And then 5G came along to work hand-in-hand with IoT to add even more improvements, whether it is simply for connectivity or for fast, near real-time response rates.
EE Times has organized a conference next month to explore this topic with various companies in this ecosystem. The IoT & 5G World virtual conference takes place over three days from 22-24 June 2021, looking at the reality of where we are with IoT technologies, how the promise of IoT can be fulfilled on a wider scale. In this context, it will look at how 5G technologies can support more widespread adoption, whether it is for industrial automation, for healthcare and well-being, and many more, such as farming and agriculture.
In the opening talk for the second day, Antoine Bonnabel, technology & market analyst for RF devices and technology at Yole Développement will highlight the 5G approaches to enabling IoT connectivity, and how they will have to compete with the edge computing approach. 5G uses two different approaches for IoT connectivity: the use of public frequencies owned by mobile network operators (MNOs) and the use of private frequencies under license acquired by private companies in specific areas. Both approaches allow for deployments of private networks with dedicated infrastructure, one through network slicing and the other through locally deployed private infrastructure. Both now compete with edge computing for truly secure solutions at plant level. Bonnabel will present the general dynamics of each approach with their industrial chain specifics and expected market at component level.
