The internet of things has arrived, at least according to those on the front lines of the industry. Wireless networks in some cases are connecting more things than people; and cities, industrial conglomerates and others are increasingly deploying smart applications leveraging sensors, networks and analytics.

But with growth in the space also comes additional competition and extra uncertainty and the options available to IoT shoppers are growing by leaps and bounds. And like a brewing storm on the horizon, 5G continues to loom over the IoT industry with the promise of dramatic improvements coupled with the uncertainties inherent in any new and untested technology. Thus, the challenge facing IoT players is immense.

It’s clear that the IoT stands as a major opportunity, but what’s unclear is how LTE and 5G might be used to take advantage of that opportunity. This Fierce webinar will shine a light on this evolving space.
