5G and satellites will meet more IoT service needs

Author:QINSUN Released in:2024-03 Click:18

LuxResearch predicts that 5G technology will become a unified technology that can address multi band usage, and satellites will become more cost-effective in response to more IoT services. In addition, 6G will appear as an extension of millimeter waves, with limited applications in remote communication.

The research company points out in its new report "Innovative Remote Connection" that the choice of transmission technology is gradually decreasing with the development of long distances, while 4G/5G cellular, LPWAN, and satellite are suitable and reliable choices for remote connection.

Chief analyst and report author Michael Sullivan said, "People have long known the trade-off between 4G cellular, LPWAN, and satellites." "The low bandwidth of LPWAN is very suitable for remote device monitoring, while the long distance of satellites makes it suitable for environmental monitoring."

Remote connection solutions are not only related to the mode of data transmission: the location of data processing is also an important consideration.

Edge computing enables companies to strategically position data processing nodes closer to data sources, thereby reducing latency. When data can be processed locally like edge computing, the traffic that needs to be sent to the remote data center or transferred to the central cloud platform for processing will be reduced. This feature can reduce bandwidth and power requirements, and allow for the deployment of low-cost technologies.

LuxResearch has ranked different connectivity options suitable for certain industries.

Analysts from LuxResearch suggest that remote manufacturing will benefit greatly from 5G for predictive maintenance and remote control of robots and machines, but LPWAN should be used for energy consumption monitoring.

Firstly, the mining and construction industries can benefit from a range of choices: LPWAN for on-site equipment monitoring, satellites for on-site inspections, and 5G for automated machine operations.

On the other hand, oil and gas should deploy LPWAN for ground equipment monitoring and satellites for onshore or offshore drilling. The best solution for well and production data analysis is increasingly a 5G hybrid that combines distance and low latency.

The supply chain can also benefit from joint technology methods, using LPWAN for warehouse and logistics monitoring, using 5G and satellite for real-time tracking and tracking, and using LPWAN satellite hybrid technology for cold chain monitoring solutions. The utility industry can benefit greatly from LPWAN's wind farm operations and smart meters, as well as satellites used for drone line inspections.
