An Introduction to 5G Spectrum and Service Grades
Connectivity has been the ultimate enabler of Industry 4.0, and in fact, it is at the heart of it. Secure wireless communication has empowered factory automation, large-scale production, and improved safety. Businesses require a different set of network performance parameter for their device connectivity in terms of throughput, transmission delay, packet loss, etc. Due to various functional requirements and use cases, the one-size-fits-all approach employed in 2G, 3G, and 4G, is not suited for a wide variety of applications. Therefore, connectivity service providers (CSPs) must tailor their network services based on the precise requirements of any given application, device, and user. 5G provides a multi-layer spectrum approach needed to address various 5G network service categories known as service grades.
IoT vs. M2M: What’s the Difference?
