It seems like the IoT has already arrived. How is 5G going to change it? 5G may help to massively expand IoT by enabling connected devices and sensors to gather data continuously, proactively, and (eventually) to allow our devices to act on our behalves. Qualcomm Sr. VP Raj Talluri envisions a world where sensors communicate hazards to the appropriate people before they ever materialize.
5G will be more than a new generation of mobile. Qualcomm Senior Vice President Raj Talluri explains It’s a unifying fabric that will connect billions of devices in some of the fastest, most reliable and most efficient ways possible. The impact will be revolutionary, reshaping industries and transforming our world. This new world requires not only ultra-fast connectivity for smartphones, tablets and laptops, but also bringing online a vast number of smart, efficient, often low-cost, low-complexity devices — and keeping them connected even under very challenging conditions. And while we’ve been talking about the Internet of Things for some time, with 5G, we’ll take it to a whole new level and extend the promise to some revolutionary new uses..
