Refining Business Connectivity with 5G, Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence
AI, IoT, and 5G, the top three revolutionary technologies of the decade. Until now, the three have been used separately and each has exceeded our expectations. With more and more organizations shifting to the data bandwagon, the adoption or incorporation of these is only expected to rise and that’s no surprise.
However, what comes to us as a piece of news is their merger. There have been quite a few fusions in the past, but this seems to be different. Experts consider the integration and collaboration of AI, IoT, and 5G to give birth to a new era, intelligent connectivity with the unmapped potential to transform everyday life.
But what exactly is the Intelligent Connectivity and how will it affect businesses? Not sure if you have an answer to this?
This article will detail you on all that’s needed to know about the fusion.
Intelligent Connectivity isn’t anything but the fusion of AI, 5g, and IoT.
- IoT: IoT brings in the era of connectedness. It aims at bridging the gap between the physical and the non-living, virtual objects, allowing them to connect, collaborate, and share information. For instance, consider the fitness bands that people wear. These bands have built-in sensors that can track and analyse human activities. Ever thought of a wearable device that could measure your heartbeat or track your sleep? That’s the beauty of the internet of things.
- AI: Artificial intelligence is the branch of science that manifests intelligence within machines and devices to automate mundane processes. By the term intelligence, we mean to say that it enables machines to emulate human behaviour. AI works in tandem with Machine Learning to, training computers to act like humans and make data-based decisions smartly.
- 5G: Regarded as the fifth-generation technology, 5G comes with increased throughput and frequency capacity. It is expected to be stronger and 10x better than the earlier generations. With a latency of less than 1ms, this would redefine the way devices interact.
Definitely, the three of them are super powerful and have tremendous potential to transform the digital space. Adhering to this, experts are now planning to bring all the three together to act as a single unit. The sole purpose of the integration of the three is to speed the advancement phase of technologies while promoting the formation of disruptive services.
In the simplest sense, the Intelligent Connectivity model would gather data from machines, devices, and IoT sensors which would then be passed through AI algorithms rendering meaningful information. The data presented is in the most appealing way helping organizations make better and sound decisions.
With each day, the scope of artificial intelligence is rising. More and more advancements flood the computing space paving way for smarter algorithms leading to the sustainability of IoT devices. The only thing that is missing here is network connectivity. And 5g is all that’s needed to enable collaboration between them, opening doors for digital transformation.
Impact on Industries: How Intelligent Connectivity Transforms Business Sectors
Intelligent Connectivity might not be a known phenomenon now but it soon to take over the business world. The impact of the same is fascinating and can lead to the formation of a whole new era of digital dominance.
Here are the top three segments to be affected by the adoption of intelligent connectivity.
- Transportation & Logistics
The fact that 5G offers low latency network connectivity, intelligent connectivity allows you to track data in real-time. Whether it is information related to the traffic, the speed of the vehicle, location, or weather, these intelligent systems have the potential to extract data in real-time and share the same with dedicated monitoring devices which can then process these data to come up with insights.
Such information is useful in terms of making decisions related to fleet adding flexibility. Additionally, when drivers are aware of the traffic conditions in real-time, they can avoid congested areas, accelerating the delivery of goods.
- Manufacturing Industry
Automation is trending and with the fusion of technologies of AI, IoT, and 5g, the manufacturing sector would witness a rise in advancements with integrated automation. With low latency, better data rates, and optimal reliability, the industry could expect greater automation driven by machines and robots.
The fusion allows the manufacturing industry to embed sensors within their line of operations and keep track of the health of the system. Any irrelevant activity would be traced at the earliest, notifying the concerned person and preventing further damage. It could so happen that the systems have inbuilt sensors that can redo the inconsistency and fix the error. Further, 5g technology enables remote monitoring of the system with human operators working at the other end.
Healthcare stands as one of the most important industries requiring prompt attention. The intrusion of intelligent connectivity aims at restructuring the line of healthcare activities on an everyday basis. With remote monitoring of patient’s health to virtual surgery, healthcare is booming with success.
Recently, there has been widespread adoption of wearables in the healthcare sector. It allows healthcare experts to track the health of a patient, fostering remote care, and reducing readmission rates. 5G technology improves the connectivity with the servers giving the ease to track the health status of a patient. It also leads to the provision of real-time care to the patient with significant information in hand. All of this increases the quality of care given to the patients.
- Security of Public Infrastructure and lives
Buildings, parks, railway stations, public properties, and so on — smart cities may have many objects and infrastructural components that can be enabled with the IoT sensors. With the help of AI/ML-driven IoT devices, officials will be able to figure out the anomalies or changes in structures which may cause cracks, vibration, strain, or any type of damage. So, the dangerous circumstances can be avoided with early maintenance or actions.
Similarly, temperature, pH, proportion of components in water, humidity, quality of drinking water or water in pools, etc. can also be checked before it turns abnormal and claim lives/health of people in the region.
Overall, this whole well-connected AI-enabled IoT device arrangement can help the cities improve the quality of life and safety for the citizens.
