This study reviews the prospects of critical IoT applications and the ability of 5G networks to fulfil mission-critical requirements.
The report details the key technological advances of LTE Advanced and 5G that will enable critical IoT applications. It also presents the main target markets, notably automotive, industrial IoT and health, and their applications and requirements. The development perspective of the critical IoT markets are also examined in detail, with market estimates up to 2030.
Finally, the impact of critical IoT is analysed, focusing on business models (new offerings) and value chains (new positions and power play).
