Limitations of 4GLTE.

One of the most common and flexible types of device connectivity is cellular. This has long been the go-to when businesses want to connect their IoT devices to the cloud, but don't want to use cables or Wi-Fi to place them on the corporate network. Until recently, 4GLTE was the high-end global mobile communication standard and offered the best option for connecting IoT devices to the cloud using cellular protocols. However, while 4G is far faster than 3G, it still limits the amount of data that can be transferred and the number of individual devices that can be connected.

4G LTE networks may not be able to sustain in many cases, such as tracking the real-time movement of hundreds of passengers through facilities, location and performance reporting of thousands of devices, real-time interaction of mobile devices with building systems and controls. If you've been to a big conference, sports game, or concert, you've probably experienced a frustrating limit on the number of smartphones that can successfully connect to a 4G network. Currently, with the growth of distributed and hybrid workforces, 75% believe reliable broadband connections must be greatly improved in order to fully support hybrid work.

5g bandwidth enables the Internet of Things.

5g is expected to solve broadband access and coverage issues by dramatically increasing the number of connected devices in buildings, and could completely transform and accelerate the smart building technology market for post-epidemic workplaces in China. Unlike 4g, 5g is a unified platform designed to support 100x traffic growth and 10x lower end-to-end latency, enabling large IoT such as mobile phones, building systems, etc. to be almost ubiquitous, enabling fully connected smart buildings narrowband iot.

In addition, since 5 offers a wide range of deployment models (from traditional macrocells to hotspots) and new connectivity modes (such as device-to-device and multi-hop mesh) to support all spectrum types and frequency bands on the machine, and Optimize the spectrum used in real time. This means that, as more organizations reassess their real estate needs and find a smart way to use hybrid work models with actual use workplaces, 5G can enable wider deployment of sensors that can be accessed from the network almost immediately Register and share data with any node on the site - whether it's an office HVAC system connected to an employee badge, or a remote employee at a home desk.

5G IoT is applied to commercial buildings.

After working with cloud and desktop technologies for over 20 years, I am all too aware that moving to a new software platform can be a significant undertaking, but the end result outweighs the initial effort to make it happen. Using all 5G services is no exception. This will require careful planning and an understanding of its availability. Availability applies not only to the location of your existing facility, but also to whether the various technological solutions you might use in your facility actually support 5G. 5G is rapidly rolling out to most major U.S. metros, but geographically dispersed rural areas and organizations in other countries may face standardization challenges in the near term.

Many of the proptech solutions currently installed are likely to be optimized for small amounts of data to be transferred at intervals only slower than 5g. This could mean that some solutions won't get the higher performance from 5g networks due to technical limitations of the existing hardware itself. In many cases, we also need to replace existing infrastructure, such as routers that only support 4G. Your facility organization requires careful planning and collaboration with your IT department at the enterprise level and on local facilities.

First, collaboration often starts with convincing the IT team that the end result is good for them, such as explaining how to move IoT devices from wired and wireless networks to cellular to reduce traffic to internal infrastructure. Increased bandwidth also reduces user perception of these devices, which may reduce the use of IT support resources. As part of your transition plan, it is recommended that you review your Voice over Internet Protocol, data management, and security policies during this time. Work with local operators to understand their specific 5G tower migration plans to ensure perceived migration times based on maximum uptime.

We have seen that the smart building market has grown rapidly over the past few years. As COVID-19 spreads, the availability of new building technologies to detect workplace utilization and occupancy, indoor air quality (IAQ), building equipment sensor monitoring, and more has accelerated. Now, homeowners and owners are under even more pressure to meet new sustainability requirements. In addition, the organization adopted a new work model during the Great Resignation to measure building performance in terms of quality. Accurate data will be key to understanding what, when and where to work. To achieve this, I would like to see more organizations use all the features that the 5 network supports. It really is the ultimate catalyst for the implementation of smart buildings.
