The upcoming 5G can be beneficial for IoT in various aspects:
- higher data-rates
- low latency
- better utilization of bandwidth
- potential wireless power transfer/harvest
Introduction of mm-waves (28 GHz and higher) would be a part of 5G standards. However, mm-waves are tricky and usually require line-of-sight in order to operate.
I wonder, about the IoT devices/applications that would (and could) benefit particularly from the introduction of mm-waves (which differentiates this question with an already cited one and another question of mine that focuses solely on the heavy-load part). How the IoT plans (if it does) to overcome the short-range of mm-wave part of the upcoming 5G? Are there concrete IoT projects that target the usage of mm-waves for its operation?
