5G vs IoT

Karri Kuoppamaki VP, Tech Dev & Strategy

Two things are needed for 5G and IoT: nationwide coverage and mobility (because some IoT applications will require mobility).  As a lower spectrum, 600 MHz propagates better and penetrates further

  • 600 MHz facilitates mobility because it covers every square inch of the U.S.
  • 600 MHz covers both stationary and mobile applications better than the higher frequencies that some companies are looking at, which will be localized because they can’t reach everywhere
