What is 5G IoT and how will it change connectivity?
This new technology standard promises much more than just further developments of existing mobile communication technologies. Comprehensive changes in digitalization, society and the economy will take place in almost all areas of life. So far, the primary aim has been to expand the infrastructural conditions of conventional networks across the board, in order to ensure network availability for almost all mobile devices. In the coming years, in addition to the continued networking within the 5G IoT, the focus will be on meeting the growing needs of the networked society even more optimally than before.
Webinar recap: Cellular IoT explained - everything you need to know about 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, LTE-M and NB-IoT
On the 22nd of April we held the second webinar in the series hosted by our Head of Product, Christian Henke about the different wireless technologies and their benefits for IoT. From legacy 2G/3G migration to 4G LTE, LTE-M, NB-IoT and 5G-ready functionality – there are a lot of technology types to choose from. But which one should you consider for your business case? Each generation of network brings with it a significant milestone in the development of mobile communications, the benefits of which we’ve outlined in our recent webinar.

4G versus 5G – A paradigm shift in mobile communications?
Although 4G / LTE networks are yet to have full global coverage, 5G technology is already advancing. The first 5G radio masts have been installed across multiple countries, ready to supply the world with a new high-speed network. However, what is the difference between 4G vs 5G and can the 5G standard meet its own requirements? To really understand 4G vs 5G we must take a look at the core of 5G and make necessary comparisons with 4G.
