Technology is evolving so fast that, what was there a year ago almost seems outdated in couple of years.
5G is soon going to get rolled out across major cities and countries across globe. The amount of speed and volume of data which can be transferred through the network is going to increase drastically. As much as it speeds up existing networks and websites access it will open up doors for another set of devices and communication protocols which is enabled by the new spectrum of data transfer.
Connected Homes and Internet of Things does demand a higher bandwidth and speed in-terms of network performance, the opportunities and the Pitfalls at the same time are not few. When any technology takes its shapes business can achieve value in multiple segments of approach
1 – Improving existing capabilities and services in terms of speed, quality, accuracy etc
2 – Providing facilities and services which were not doable before but do able with the use of new technologies
3 – Protecting or providing services against the Pitfalls of the technology in various methods.
Any approach thus to pursue needs a reasonably clear understanding of the technology as well as predicted market demands. Those who are already in business might be able to find those segments of opportunity more easily than those who are looking for an entry.
Since, high data and performance are going to be the norm, our handheld mobile phones and applications will benefit from the higher capabilities it could achieve. Many surveys and predictions says that Mobile Phones will be able to do over 80% of the tasks what we are doing using a PC and other.
Connected homes enables interconnection and operability of various devices, services and apps, ranging from communications and entertainment to healthcare, security and home automation. This is one segment where we can expect a lot of devices to be introduced.
Similarly, is the wide opening in IOT sector – Internet of things is that system of interrelated computing equipment, mechanical and digital object, objects, humans, or animals are provided with unique id and having the ability to do data transfers without direct human interaction.
Mobile will play a critical role in how humans are going to interact with the rest of machines and devices. Since everyone is going to have at least one with them where ever he or she is, it will get used to most or almost all of the machine interactions humans are doing. Being precautions optimistic in estimating and servicing the market requirements can provide huge or niche business opportunities across the globe. Not to mention the opportunities on global and regional scales.
