How Should the 5G-NR Standard Evolve to Address Massive IoT Applications?

How Should the 5G-NR Standard Evolve to Address Massive IoT Applications?

April 19, 2023

3GPP has done the necessary work to define the various device categories dedicated to supporting IoT

Ever since the dawn of 2G, cellular has proven to be an ideal connectivity solution for IoT applications. Reasons for this are many:

  1. It is reliable (maintained by mobile network operators)
  2. It is secure (based on standards)
  3. It is available in all regions worldwide
  4. It is scalable

If implemented correctly, and based on today’s 4G and 5G standards, cellular IoT enables cost and power-optimized solutions for all types of IoT devices. Low cost and low power are prerequisites for IoT to realize sustainability and reach massive adoption.
