Quick definition: 5G IoT leverages the fifth generation of cellular networks to connect larger concentrations of devices with significantly faster data speeds and lower latency. There are three distinct types of 5G networks, and each has IoT applications. These advanced standards introduce several technologies that allow carriers and MNOs to leverage greater bandwidth and provide better, more versatile connectivity.

All You Need to Know About 5G Small Cell
We are still years away from seeing widespread 5G coverage throughout the globe. But 5G small cells are helping operators deliver 5G service where it’s needed most, extending and improving coverage to more localized areas.
What Is 5G? Everything You Need to Know
5G networks are vastly improving high-speed Internet connectivity around the globe and opening the door to a revolution in the Internet of Things (IoT). There are already billions of IoT devices, but the wider bandwidth and more efficient spectrum usage of 5G networks will allow far more devices to operate in close proximity without interfering with one another.
What Is Cellular IoT? Simple, Global Device Connectivity
Cellular IoT uses cellular networks to connect physical devices to the Internet. The same cell towers that provide service to your smartphone can connect heavy machinery, security systems, hospital equipment, asset tracking systems, and billions of other devices to the internet. Cellular connectivity enables these devices to transmit and receive data, so end users can remotely monitor, analyze, and control them.
