5G will hit the IoT market in late 2020 and struggle for years, claims report
ext-generation 5G technology will only appear in the internet-of-things (IoT) market in late 2020, and struggle to find its mark in the space for years afterwards, according to a new report from analyst firm Berg Insight. As late as 2023, just three per cent of IoT connections will utilise 5G, it predicted.
Berg Insight has considered the three evolutionary specifications of the 5G New Radio (NR) standard, as prescribed in 3GPP’s Releases 15 and 16. These cover enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), massive machine-type communications (mMTC), and ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC).
