Cut Through The Hype To Assess Your Need For 5G-Enabled IoT Use Cases

How To Gauge The Readiness Of 5G And Its Impact On Your IoT Network Strategy

May 16, 2019


Why Read This Report

The hype around 5G is at fever pitch, with network operators and device and equipment manufacturers making near-daily announcements regarding new deployment initiatives or highlighting potential 5G benefits for vertical industries. 5G networks promise to let enterprises deploy internet of things (IoT)-enabled use cases requiring high bandwidth, ultra-low latency, and differentiated service characteristics — but infrastructure and operations (I&O) stakeholders must cut through the hype and understand that 5G networks won't be available on a wide scale for many years. This is an update to a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
