With the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G on the horizon, there is an increasing need for definition and clarification, proven methodologies, strategic intelligence and guidance for both operators and vendors. Although 5G is considered not just an extrapolation of 4G different use cases need to be identified such as IoT, where different radio signals need to be sent to different types of devices. As most in the industry do not expect 5G or Next Gen 4G networks in any short time, they are defined, to be commercially launched until 2020. ExelixisNet aims to work with all the key players in helping to define the next generation of network technology.
Evolving with the needs of the industry, we have partnered with the University of Athens, Informatics and Telecommunications
School of Sciences to develop a groundbreaking methodology, combiming industrial and academic expertise, exploring our existing new technology (5G) market readiness index. This service will also examine the role/evolution of high speed wireless technologies such as mmwave and similar ransport technologies.
In addition, IoT connectivity will be studied as part of the Wireless Foresight research project and thexpected opportunities for vendors per technology in collaboration with industry’s experts and visionaires. We expect between 10 and 100 times more Internet-connected devices than there are connected humans. Thus, IoT coonectivity will require even more reliable and secure communication links, lower transmission delays and extreme throughput to serve the data transmitted by billions sensors and machines.
