How will 5G Transform IoT? Find Out at IoT Evolution Expo 2020

By Ken Briodagh

IoT Evolution Expo 2020 is rolling and ongoing, and we interviewed several of our speakers to get a bit of a preview of what to expect from their sessions.

Here, we interviewed Les Goldman, Sr. Product Manager at Syniverse, who will be taking the stage as part of the How Will 5G Transform IoT? panel at IoT Evolution Expo 2020, which is taking place February 11 to 14 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Here is a little preview of his thoughts:

IoT Evolution: What are some key ideas you plan to cover?

Les Goldman: Benefits of 5G.  Real world applications and drivers for use. Issues such as security, application structure/support, network considerations; EDGE, slicing, roaming.  Focus on 5G support and interoperability with other technology.

IoTE: What insights do you hope attendees will take home?

LG: View of the whole ecosystem.  Understand the key benefits, deployment considerations, risks and current industry status for deployments – simplify the complexities.

IoTE: Can you identify a few important trends influencing your sector of the IoT which will shape the path of the industry? Why these?

LG: IoT will be influenced by key trends such as 5G, Private LTE, global communications services (macro cellular and satellite), non-cellular IoT devices, security (including risks of using the public Internet), industry/government standards and compliance.

IoTE: What are the biggest challenges facing the IoT right now? What are some strategies you recommend to overcome those challenges?

LG: Connectivity, interoperability, security and application access across networks; both local and wide area.  Connectivity and interoperability are key for IoT to maximize solution design and cost efficiency.  Security lacking today for IoT services; compounded by use of public Internet.  Access to public/private cloud applications are critical – data is the gold standard for IoT.  IoT network solutions must be flexible to address micro (local) and macro (wide area) communication use cases.
