From 1G to 6G: How 5G is fueling the IoT and what comes next

Mobile networks have been the catalyst for communication since the introduction of 2G – first between people, then between machines (M2M), and now between people and machines. Each new generation of mobile communications has had a lasting impact on the way we communicate and work. Thanks to 5G, we now have a standard that has helped IoT applications achieve a decisive breakthrough. How exactly did 5G come about? And what comes next?

Mobile communications, as we know it today, had their beginnings in the 1990s. Before that, there were only analog mobile communications networks (A, B, C, and D networks), which together formed the first generation of mobile communications.
In 2019, the introduction of 5G promised a revolution: With data rates of up to 20 Gbit/s, low latencies of just one millisecond, and the ability to network billions of devices simultaneously, 5G laid the foundation for digitization of industry. 
5G will be followed by 6G – boasting even lower latencies and even higher data rates of up to 400 Gbit/s. 

For Costa coffee vending machines, Device Insight created an IoT solution that can quickly detect and correct technical errors.
