Intel 5G and IoT: Connecting a Data-Driven World
An explosion of connected devices will depend on 5G to share data and distribute intelligence to machines that enhance the experience, safety, and efficiency of our world.
In the simplest terms, the Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the enormous network of connected machines that is the result of adding connectivity to devices beyond traditional computing devices. IoT encompasses billions of network-connected sensors, cameras, wearable devices, vehicles, assembly lines, and even robots. Combined with the computing power of the cloud, IoT data will feed an AI engine, delivering insight and new levels of machine-to-machine coordination that will improve lives and accelerate economic growth.
IoT devices will generate more than half of the world’s data by 2025, according to research from IDC. Transmitting that data—and realizing its potential—will demand 5G wireless capacity 1000X greater than its 4G predecessor.
5G’s ultra-reliable low-latency communication will unlock transformative use cases in safety-critical applications like infrastructure or manufacturing systems. Edge computing accelerated by 5G will also bring compute closer to IoT applications, delivering intelligence in real-time while keeping the data local.
5G will connect many more IoT devices throughout the network, enabling businesses to gather and act on a greater amount of previously untapped data.
5G and connected cameras will give IoT devices vision-based inference and intelligence, opening possibilities from safer cities to productive manufacturing.
5G will tie IoT, edge, and cloud together, distributing computing resources to meet demand and enabling time-sensitive IoT applications to continuously optimize.
5G and IoT will provide retailers with instant inventory updates, enhanced security, and shopping experiences without a checkout line.
5G and IoT in manufacturing give machines the ability to streamline processes, monitor the supply chain, calibrate equipment, and free people from repetitive tasks.
5G will connect communities where traffic systems, first responders, municipal services, and transit IoT devices communicate continuously for better service.
5G and IoT will enable diagnostic imaging technology that leverages powerful computer vision and cloud analysis to improve care.
5G will enable enterprises to scale Internet of Things applications. Learn how an ecosystem of experts at Intel’s 5G & IoT Innovation Center are testing and optimizing use cases that combine the power of these transformative technologies.
IoT revenue in the B2B segment alone will soon top $300 billion, according to Bain and Co. Intel’s integrated IoT solutions speed the development of new IoT business models, reducing cost and complexity as 5G opens a new era of intelligent networks.
