5G IoT market will democratize the telecoms industry.

The 5G IoT market is expected to reach $5.5 trillion by 2025, with a CAGR of over 38%. 5G IoT will contribute significantly towards this growth, as it offers a range of benefits to both consumers and businesses. The most important benefit is the ability to provide faster data speeds and lower latency. This means that consumers can stream videos more easily and businesses can use their devices more efficiently. For example, a car manufacturer could use sensors in their vehicles to monitor how customers are using them, which would allow them to make changes based on customer feedback or concerns. A second benefit is increased connectivity. With 5G IoT, users will be able to connect more devices than ever before without experiencing any problems with connectivity, as long as those devices are connected wirelessly through cellular networks or Wi-Fi hotspots. This means that consumers can connect their smart home appliances without worrying about whether they'll be able to access those appliances when they're away from home (as long as they have internet access). This panel will explore the impact of 5G IoT market, implementation strategies, business models & impact to industries, telcos & consumers.
