5G: a key driver for IoT

5G (fifth generation) connectivity is expected to drive the market growth of Internet of Things (IoT) in the coming years, as the newer mobile technology will connect machines and devices with higher data speeds, ultra-low latency and increased availability, among other benefits. By 2023, connected cars are going to form the largest installed base of 5G IoT endpoints worldwide with more than 19 million installed endpoints. Outdoor surveillance cameras and fleet telematics devices are also big parts of the 5G IoT endpoint installed base.
