This time around, with 5G and Wi-Fi 6 hitting the market in 2019, dialogues have begun such as whether 5G or Wi-Fi 6 will take the lead for IoT. Truth be told, Wi-Fi 6 and 5G may actually be common.

As Wi-Fi threats increase on a daily basis, it’s getting tough securing your digital existence. Be if 5G or Wi-Fi technology, both are susceptible to hacks. Amplify your Wi-Fi security before you fall victim to a hack.

With the introduction of Wi-Fi 6 and 5G, governments and businesses are hopeful it will pave the way for an efficient flow of communication with the rest of the world. Before we begin, let’s understand what these emerging technologies are all about and why they’re exciting for the future of IoT.

The Future of Wi-Fi – Wi-Fi 6

While Wi-Fi networks are thought of something that helps you connect to the internet wirelessly, that’s not all that they do. From sending files to others connected to the network to turn your smartphone into a remote control, Wi-Fi standards have come a long way.

Wi-Fi 6, the next generation of wireless, is based on the IEEE 802.11 ax standard. The technology is also known as Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 which is believed to enable lower battery consumption in smart devices, making it most preferred in nearly any environment, especially with smart home devices or the Internet of Things (IoT).

Given that Wi-Fi 6 is on its way to transforming the way we interact and do business, here’s an outlook on its key elements:

  • Potentially higher data rates – as with anything new as especially a futuristic wireless standard, the initial data rates will definitely be higher and may stay constant for some time.

  • The recently developed network standard will boast improved capacity, meaning you can send and receive large files at instantaneous speeds.

  • Improved coverage and performance as opposed to its predecessor in settings where numerous devices are connected.

  • By far, the most anticipated function is its improved power efficiency, which would not only consume less power but be light on the smartphone’s batteries.

In theory, Wi-Fi 6 is expected to be four times faster in areas where several devices are connected to the same network. Also, Wi-Fi 6 will offer much higher bandwidth than Wi-Fi 5. As our devices can withstand improved speeds and require high speeds in some cases, increased internet service will prove to be beneficial for devices as they will be able to take full advantage of augmented speeds.

5G – Enhanced Speed

5G technology is the term coined as the fifth generation cellular technology that will take the place of 4G LTE. Usually, mobile networks have dominated densely populated areas where Wi-Fi networks aren’t readily accessible. The next-gen mobile network will boost network coverage in regions that weren’t thought of before.

As you can expect, 5G cellular connections will be remarkably speedy. Hence, offering higher speeds than the fastest LTE speeds that are currently available. Speed is one thing, what really sets this new spectrum apart is its ability to provide more bandwidth to users, like the Wi-Fi 6. This convenience will allow more devices to easily connect on networks and experience blazing-fast speeds without any network congestion.

The Future of IoT with 5G and Wi-Fi 6

Now that we have a sound understanding of 5G and Wi-Fi 6, let’s understand how improved speed would help IoT devices.

Since a long time, humans have been fascinated by speed. As you would expect, speed is what’s essential to run IoT devices smoothly and make full use of them. By nature, IoT devices are designed to send and receive large sums of information in less time with less power consumption. The widespread adaptation of 5G and Wi-Fi 6 will enable IoT devices to be always-connected and require less power and improved battery life.

As such, IoT devices may come equipped with SIM cards that can easily connect to a 5G network. While the rollout of 5G and Wi-Fi 6 may take a few months, it’s safe to say that the introduction of these bands will definitely benefit IoT devices.

What Does that Say about Wi-Fi Security?

As more and more devices will connect to public Wi-Fi networks with rather fast internet speeds, it’s likely that they’ll be susceptible to Wi-Fi threats. Since a large number of devices will connect to the internet and enjoy rapid internet speeds, hackers and alike will find it convenient to pry on your devices as their efforts will be minimized with potential upside in their targets.

On the other hand, the introduction of IoT devices on the wide web threatens to expose your private networks. As IoT hasn’t fully developed, there are security loopholes in devices which could be just the entry points needed by cybercriminals. It’s best to equip yourself with Wi-Fi security so that your digital presence is fully secured.

    Key Market Trends:

    Condition Monitoring is expected to register a Significant Growth

    Condition monitoring or the act of monitoring the condition of an asset, especially through real-time data points, forms the foundation of what has become known as Industry 4.0, in its basic form. An integral part of condition monitoring, within the IIoT ecosystem, is providing data that can then be used for Predictive Maintenance (PdM) and many more smart factory applications, such as Digital Twin.

    Big data analytics, especially with predictive analytics, is a growing trend and often prompts discussions around centralizing data across multiple sites, so that the consistency of data is achieved. However, a significant roadblock remains the inability of many customers to convert the flood of new data into actionable information. Big Data systems need to monitor machine failures repeatedly before they can analyze adequately and predict effectively for the future.

    For instance, overhead conveyor systems are used in assembly production lines in the automotive and other manufacturing industries. The failure of single support frames can lead to the disruption of entire production lines. A condition monitoring system based on big data analytics detects the problem at an early stage and, thus, prevents unplanned downtime.
