IoT spaceship, the 5G

There is little doubt that 5G will have profound impact on the course of human civilization. Mobile subscribers would benefit from 5G in different ways which can be summarized as better user experiences. However, the greater impact is on Machines, to make the world highly connected and ultra-smart. The foundation for such transformation will be the 5G.

The new Radio Air Interface (the 5G) comprises New Frame Structure and Waveform, Massive Antenna Technology and Advance Coding and Modulation. However, the biggest improvement is the wider carrier bandwidth as it dramatically increased from 20Mhz in LTE to 400Mhz in 5G.

Quectel is determined to be a strong player in the 5G-based IoT ecosystem. Quectel will be offering the broadest module product portfolio from NB-IoT to 5G and as a result, Quectel’s mission statement would soon impresses the audiences “To connect the unconnected things and build a highly connected smart world!” since we will be able to practically connect any connectable THING on the planet earth.

The article below claims that 5G will dramatically change what we know as IoT today as it’s going to unlock countless new opportunities that existing wireless technologies are not been able to tackle.
