According to a recent release, Frost & Sullivan's analysis, Role of 5G Communication Revolutionizing Industrial Internet of Things, finds that the integration of 5G in IIoT systems will accelerate the realization of Industry 4.0 with high-speed, low-latency, and large-volume data transfer. While the application of 5G-enabled IIoT is currently limited to quality inspections, supply chain management, and generic machine control, key system manufacturers are actively exploring other areas in industrial operations where the benefits of 5G connectivity can be leveraged for process optimization and increased automation.

“Incorporating 5G in IIoT devices will enable low latency, increase data throughput, and reduce operation time, thus leading to improved overall process productivity,” said Mogana Tashiani, Technical Insights Research Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. “Apart from enhancing the automation of industrial operations and control, 5G-enabled IIoT devices can also minimize the complexity of supply chain networks and warehouse management, helping businesses to efficiently operate in dynamic business environments.”

Role of 5G Communication Revolutionizing Industrial Internet of Things is part of Frost & Sullivan's global TechVision Growth Partnership Service program.
