With the deployment of 5G moving full steam ahead, many organizations are seeing a clearer picture of the possibilities when it's combined with the Internet of Things (IoT). When 5G and IoT are brought together, everything from industrial hardware to remote communication tools can be connected to the internet to collect and share actionable data. 5G is expected to impact IoT, driving cost, availability and scalability efficiencies which in turn, should accelerate adoption and innovation. As 5G is more widely deployed, we should enjoy faster throughput, energy efficiency (up to 90% less than 4G per bit) and support for up to one million connected devices per square km. These capabilities could help bring real-time processing to the IoT and fuel its exponential growth. IoT-generated data will reach nearly 80 zettabytes by 2025.
