“The industrial IoT sector is evolving, and industry 4.0 is taking shape. There is extremely high interest and scope to utilize 5G for industrial IoT,” Sangam wrote in response to questions.


The collection of segments and needs pertaining to industrial IoT is vast, with variances on speed, capacity, latency, battery life, cost, and longevity, he added. Industrial IoT covers both extremes — a low traffic agricultural sensor or high-bandwidth video surveillance fused with artificial intelligence (AI).

Prakash Sangam, founder of Tantra Analyst, said the 315 modem will mainly address a set of use cases for high bandwidth, high speed, high capacity, long battery life and high reliability needed for factory automation, connectivity in retail stores, video surveillance and asset protection, robotics, signage and agricultural automation.
A purpose-built modem other than the X65 for smartphones is needed to meet rugged performance in industrial locations, he added.

According to Tantra Analyst Founder Prakash Sangam, also a member of 3GPP, “TSG-RAN is probably the biggest in terms of size, scope, and number of activities…The primary objective of the RAN chair is to ensure all the members are working collaboratively to develop next-generation standards through 3GPP’s marquee consensus-based, impartial approach.”

“This concept has been around for a while but is plagued with issues. It eats into the bandwidth of users, affecting both uplink and downlink. Also, it significantly affects the battery and processor capacity of PCs,” said Tech analyst Prakash Sangam while speaking to TV9 Digital.
Instead, Edge Clouds could be the solution he believes.
“Edge Clouds or Edge computing creates architecture which stores and processes data close to the users. It offers better privacy and also provides resilience against such failures. It is a hot topic in the 5G ecosystem and can be looked at in the case of CDNs too,” he added.
