"The rate of adoption has already been five times faster than anticipated in our previous report, which holds great promise for 5G," Juniper researchers wrote. "It has not just lodged in the public consciousness but has found its way into the lives of several million consumers."
Chris Baird, president of OptConnect, a managed wireless service provider, agreed 5G is top-of-mind with business owners and consumers. The company launched mylo, a 5G wireless router, on Feb. 10, 2020, a product Baird described as ideal for applications requiring cellular connectivity for critical financial and environmental transmissions.
"mylo operates on the 5G network, enabling many benefits never seen before, like unparalleled distance, penetration, and coverage," Baird said. "Unlike other cellular devices that run out of steam when crowds start posting updates and sharing videos, mylo keeps going strong."
Baird further noted that 5G-enabled networks and devices will foster innovation across the hyperconnected marketplace. He provided the following examples of how 5G managed services can improve efficiencies by maintaining faster, more efficient connectivity:
The Juniper Research study proposed that 5G adoption will improve connectivity in IoT infrastructures, devices and components. These enhancements will enable IoT devices to tap into local connective networks and mobile telecoms, researchers noted. Additionally, 5G's capacity to cope with numerous endpoints across the IoT "will be a critical part of the unifying infrastructure that allows millions of devices to talk to each other and to provide human agents with the data they want from the IoT," report authors wrote.
Researchers cited the following five IoT sectors that will benefit from 5G connectivity:
