The recent Consumer Electronics Show served as a breeding ground for the buzz on the latest technologies that will soon be making their way into the world of common use. Of course, new Internet of Things devices and products were far from scarce at the event. Neither was talk of 5G, the newest generation of wireless technology that promises to be much faster and more efficient than its predecessors.
With the promise of faster speed comes the potential for greater capacity in supporting connected devices, namely the growing amount of devices known as the Internet of Things. 5G wireless technology would carry the capacity to connect even remote and low-power devices with ease, providing them with a constant stream of data and potentially expanding the capabilities of the devices themselves.
Businesses and those in the healthcare industry have already been utilizing the Internet of Things to provide data that allows for faster decisions and real-time marketing. With the future addition of 5G wireless technologies, the sky is the limit for the amount of data businesses may receive from the IoT.
