Inside IoT’s Earliest 5G Use Cases: Six Verticals that Uncover 5G’s Value in IoT

The excitement about the arrival of 5G has mostly been directed at the consumer market place but there are enormous markets in the business-to-business (B2B) arena that will be enabled by the high speed, low latency and connection density of 5G.
