IoT of the areas most benefited by 5g technology.
Technological advances in the different sectors have allowed both companies and governments and customers to have a different view of the world. For years, the mobile telephony sector has managed to present new generations of technology which has given rise to the development of a new generation within the sector: 5G technology. It is believed that it will be between 2019 and 2020 when the new mobile technology reaches the market; however, its arrival could involve the Internet of Things (IoT). According to experts in the field.
Currently, the latest mobile technology is 4G and 4.5G or advanced LTE networks, which have a high data rate compared to 3G and other options such as geolocation, the ability to make high-definition video calls and live streaming. Thanks to 4G, users can access reliable Internet connectivity on different devices.
However, the fifth generation is the one that will come to revolutionize the mobile phone sector, since its characteristics include a broadband almost a thousand times faster per unit area, 100% coverage, availability of almost 100% , a reduction in the energy consumption of the network of approximately 90% and 5G technology is expected to be ready to reach the levels of performance necessary for the internet of things.
So far, it is known that several cellular phone operators, as well as chip and microprocessor manufacturers, are looking to build the 5G technology ecosystem. Such is the case of Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, which are in the process of developing and testing the new generation. Qualcomm and Intel, meanwhile, seek to create microprocessors for the communications part and other companies such as Nokia and Huawei, will build a backbone network to support 5G technology. According to the investment bank, Barclays, the cost to develop this technology will be 300 billion dollars.
“It is expected that 5G technology could drive the optimal development of the Internet of Things in the next five years.”
With regards to the satellite Internet sector, so far it is known that other satellite operators such as Intelsat and Eutelsat, seek to create new generations of satellites, which would have advanced capabilities that would include certain technologies more suitable for 5G technology. Currently, there is an opportunity in the sector to guarantee the reinforcement of 5G services for its prolongation when it goes out to the market. The arrival of 5G technology would imply a greater connection of everyday objects. Houses 100% connected, greater use of devices such as wearables and tablets, as well as connected cars, are just some objects that we could see on a daily basis within a couple of years.
AXESS as a leading company in connectivity and Satellite Internet in Colombia, Mexico, Chile, Peru and Ecuador, we identify that the Internet of Things technology will benefit the business sector widely through the use of applications from where machines can be automated, controlled and connect devices and switches via the Internet “, for example: motion sensors, PH, temperature, pressure and humidity sensors for agribusiness; smoke detectors, GPS, people and traffic counting for the infrastructure sector; telemedicine, monitoring the quality of water, air, traffic and smart buildings and cities in the government sector. In the maritime sector, satellite internet will impact the tracking, load status and high value producer. On the other hand, in the banking sector, it allows monitoring and controlling ATMs, dataphones, alarm systems and automatic opening of doors and vaults. Likewise, it allows controlling specialized modules such as PLC, SCADA and POS with applications in the field of security, telemetry, predictive maintenance, remote control, monitoring, automation, prediction, early alerts and energy management.
