NTT subsidiary Transatel announced the worldwide deployment of a new 5G IoT solution for the industrial, IT and automotive sectors. Initially introduced in France, Belgium and Japan, Transatel’s global 5G IoT services is now available in the USA and will be extended to the rest of the world in the coming months. This announcement follows the recent launch of NTT’s Private 5G Network as-a-service platform.
The announcement of Transatel’s 5G offer further enhances the NTT P5G offering by allowing continuous 5G coverage between private and public networks. In the past, only 4G public coverage was available, thereby limiting the potential business benefit and use case development.
Connected Industry and Hybrid Workplace Applications on the Front Line for 5G IoT Services
The company predicts that field operations and distributed workforces will be the first to benefit from 5G broadband connectivity. SIM and eSIM compatible PCs, tablets and enterprise routers will be used to support data-intensive applications with unprecedented reliability and fluidity.
Industrial IoT and M2M use cases are also target candidates for 5G. Edge Computing and Artificial Intelligence based applications such as Video Content Analysis (VCA) as well as autonomous robots and vehicles require ever growing volumes of data. The higher bandwidth and lower latency of public and private 5G connectivity addresses these new challenges while offering manufacturers new transformation and innovation opportunities.
