Intelligent Connectivity: How 5G is Boosting AI, IoT, and Self-driving Cars

#artificialintelligence

As new technologies mature, new and advanced use cases arise from the fusion of 5G, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT). This fusion creates a world of intelligent connectivity that positively impacts all individuals, industry, society, and the economy. From now to the year 2025 we are going to witness the evolution and adoption of technologies powered by 5G. These technologies are going to be defined by highly contextualized and personalized experiences. According to a recent GSMA Intelligence report, the number of 5G global connections is going to reach 1.3 billion by 2025 covering 40 percent of the world's population or approximately 2.7 billion people.


12 ways 5G in manufacturing can boost Industry 4.0

#artificialintelligence

While the consumer-facing telecoms companies talk only about the speed of downloads, for manufacturing, the focus turns to ultra-reliable low-latency, density and ubiquitous connectivity. It's these lesser-known features, beyond the breakneck 5G speed, that will encourage industry to construct private 5G network infrastructure in industrial plants and warehouses. The sector is a production line for buzzwords; everything from the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to Industry 4.0 are common, with'smart factories' and'edge computing' not far behind. From high-precision assembly lines and augmented reality overlays, to cloud robotics and cable-free factories, here are 12 ways 5G could transform manufacturing. Although it's an overstated part of 5G, there is no getting away from the fact that the ability to download data much, much faster will be a major attraction of 5G to the manufacturing industry.


5G & The Future Of Connectivity

#artificialintelligence

The next generation of wireless technology could affect a wide range of industries, from healthcare to financial services to retail. The technology enables faster data transfer speeds -- up to 10x faster than the speeds achievable with older standards -- lower latency, and greater network capacity. As a result, 5G creates a tremendous opportunity for numerous industries, but also sets the stage for large-scale disruption. Download the free report to understand what 5G is, the industries it's disrupting, and the drivers paving the way for its implementation. As of June 2021, commercial 5G services have already been deployed across more than 1,500 cities in 60 countries worldwide, according to Viavi Solutions. The number of IoT devices -- which will rely on 5G to transmit vast amounts of data in real time -- is projected to grow from 12B in 2020 to 30B in 2025, per IoT Analytics, more than 4 devices for every person on Earth. Executives across industries are already jostling to take advantage of 5G tech -- and avoid being disrupted by it. Earnings call mentions of 5G have soared in recent years. From enabling remote robotic surgery and autonomous cars to improving crop management, 5G is poised to transform many of the world's biggest industries. The impact of 5G on manufacturing could be huge. It's estimated that improved connectivity through 5G will create $13T in global economic value across industries by 2035, according to IHS Markit. A third of that total is projected to come from the manufacturing sector alone. This would enable manufacturers to build "smart factories" that rely on automation, augmented reality, and IoT. And with 5G powering large amounts of IoT devices and sensors around the factory, artificial intelligence can be integrated more deeply with operations. On fast-paced assembly lines, even microseconds of latency can cause costly disruptions for the manufacturer.


Intelligent Connectivity: the Fusion of 5G, AI and IoT Internet of Things

#artificialintelligence

Intelligent connectivity is the combination of high-speed, low-latency 5G networks, cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) and the linking of billions of devices through the Internet of Things (IoT). As these three revolutionary technologies combine they will enable transformational new capabilities in transport, entertainment, industry and public services, and much more beyond. As operators expand beyond provision largely of network access to facilitation of holistic services, they are rapidly bringing into view a world of technological ease and sophistication which not long ago still seemed a long way off. The GSMA estimates that, by 2025, there will be 25 billion connected devices. This hyperconnectivity will be enabled by undisturbed mobile broadband, which will make the number of connected devices communicating with one other will be virtually limitless.

PARTNER FEATURE: Intelligent connectivity enables transformational new capabilities in transport, entertainment, industry, and much more. For technical systems to digitally match human actions with connected environments, however, they must meet the speed of our natural reaction times. The networks used must be ultra-reliable, as many critical tasks will be executed remotely. And they will also rely on cost-effective edge infrastructure to enable scaling. According to GSMA, 5G could account for as many as 1.2 billion connections by 2025.
