Five advantages of 5G in IIoT applications
The term '5G', like its predecessors, is a term simply used to describe a set of common standards and technologies in the cellular world. Where most of us have been using 3G and 4G for a number of years in a commercial environment, through phones and tablets, it's the Industrial IoT space which will perhaps benefit the most from the step up in cellular technology that 5G will bring, as IIoT devices become more complex and more prevalent in industrial applications.
