The Future of IoT Connectivity

The Availability of Mobile Data Connectivity is Key

As the Internet of Things (IoT) matures, and begins to mean more than the oversimplified (and over-hyped) early examples, such as the much maligned connected fridge, it has become clear that mobile networks will be crucial for ensuring connectivity of devices. It’s beyond doubt that mobile data connectivity (3G/4G) will be key to this, until the arrival of 5G at least.

Critical Upgrade: Preparing Networks for 5G and the Internet of Things

Recent advancements in radio transmission technologies have taken a big step in the right direction

As the Internet of Things ushers in a new era of connectivity, service providers have found themselves in a race to bolster their existing infrastructure in order to meet the growing demands of bandwidth-hungry end users and their connected devices. At the same time however, the mobile nature of IoT-enabled devices means that fiber, which has long been viewed as the foundation of modern high-capacity networks, is often no longer an option for introducing the necessary high bandwidth and lower latency to these networks.
