How 5G benefits AI and IoT progress

5G is the future of the edge and a game-changer. It is the latest generation in mobile broadband that will effective in the best implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and more. 5G will support the rapid global adoption of mobile, devices, chips, and sensors. The sectors like health, manufacturing, transport, education, industrial automation, and many others will gain from the 5G connectivity.

According to a study, more than 29 billion devices will be connected to IoT by 2020, and by 2025 the networking industry will invest around $1 trillion worldwide. And the 5G connectivity will not only increase the use of smart devices & real-time applications, but it will also enhance productivity. 5G connectivity is not fully implemented in all the areas of the United States, South Korea, China, and the United Kingdom, it may take a few more years to spread across countries. Revolutions have already started in many countries.

5G and Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT is the best process to use the devices to get desired results and it is implemented in most of the sectors. Of late, the use of smart chips & sensors is increasing day-by-day. It is expected that by 2022, 29 billion devices will be connected to IoT. It requires the best connectivity with high speed for better performance. 5G will be the right spectrum that could support these devices with better connectivity and speed. The technology will be useful in addressing all the challenges faced by IoT implementation.


The best feature of 5G technology is speed. This is going to address the complex challenges in the IoT implementation. For example, it will take just 3.6 seconds to download a two-hour movie using a 5G connection, whereas it takes at least 6 minutes with current 4G technology. The indication is clear that the world activities will be much faster than expected. 5G networks will allow devices to download data at more than 1 gigabit per second (1GB/S). This will allow devices to operate at a faster rate.

IoT Connectivity:

Connecting the IoT device is the prime aim to get the desired result for the next course of action. 4G connectivity will support only 4000 devices per square kilometer, whereas, with the 5G network, it can support up to a million devices. You can see a big difference. Again with the 5G spectrum many devices can be connected for better results. In the case of the Smart City applications, the sensors are being used for various reasons. Having the speed and best network will help these sensors to work faster with more accuracy.

Augmented Reality (AR)/Virtual Reality (VR)

There will be a big revolution in the Augmented Reality (AR)/Virtual Reality (VR) arena, the 5G spectrum will certainly improve the AR/VR experience. The scope of AR/VR implementation will increase further and better results can obtain. It will further open the possibilities for faster & better implementation in the major sectors including education, construction sites, mines, oil derricks, and freighter fleets, and other businesses.

Smart Manufacturing

The implementation of 5G technology will make factories into smart factories. In the factory, manufacturing is the core process that will get a major benefit from the 5G spectrum. The spectrum is going to impact the industry 4.0 and the best outcome can expect from the manufacturing sector. Smart factories with smart sensors will deliver the best results and seamless performance. The speed and connectivity are certainly going to address the biggest challenges in manufacturing for sure.

5G and Artificial Intelligence (AI)

5G is the best technology to augment the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI). It provides the best infrastructure and connects the data at a faster rate for the successful implementation of AI.


The implementation of AI in Chatbot has optimized the process of interaction with customers. These boots are helping customers with their desired results?—?the best examples are AI?—?voice-activated assistants like Google Assistant, Siri & Alexa. With 5G technology, these tools will be more productive as these devices can access the data at a faster rate unlike with 4G speed. These devices will be smart enough by getting huge data at a speed rate and can deliver better outcomes.

Smart Applications

The 5G technology with help AI application developers and data scientists to develop much-advanced analytics for better business insights. Even the most advanced application will help businesses take a decision in real-time. The outcome will be real-time applications in mobility, IoT, smart cities, industrial automation, and many other sectors.

The next-generation 5G spectrum is a game changer no doubt in that. It will be going to automate many processes by augmenting IoT and artificial intelligence.
