The post "What to Expect from 5G and IoT for Smart Spaces" appeared first on the IBM Internet of Things blog.

"It’s impossible to avoid the buzz around 5G networks as governments, telecommunications providers and vendors vie over who will lead the next generation of mobile internet connectivity. 5G promises to offer significantly faster speeds and more reliable connection to mobile devices than any network before it. That said, 5G is about more than fast internet. The exponential growth in the capacity to carry more data faster will push unparalleled growth in Internet of Things (IoT) technology projects."

The Promises and Predictions Around 5G, AI and IoT - the Connectivity Trinity

by Chris Wiegand on 4/2/19 9:59 AM

If you followed any of the conversation around Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC19), you would have seen a lot of buzz around what’s being dubbed the ‘intelligent connectivity trinity,’ comprised of 5G, AI, and IoT. The broader theme of MWC19, Intelligent Connectivity, speaks to the maturation of the 5G conversation as it shifts to examine the broader implications 5G will have on network management and IoT use cases.

HIMSS19 Takeaway: Interoperability is Key to Creating Exceptional Patient Experiences

by Chris Wiegand on 2/21/19 2:26 PM

Last week, I was present as HIMSS19 took over Orlando with thousands of healthcare providers and technology professionals converging to discuss innovation and emerging technologies in healthcare. The excitement around the newly unveiled information blocking rule has increased the push for vendor interoperability and while the healthcare industry is certainly rife with legacy technology, sensitive data, and bureaucracy, it is on the precipice of monumental change. In recent years, we’ve seen hospitals and healthcare facilities taking small steps towards holistic digital healthcare delivery, and after such an exciting week at HIMSS19, I expect we’re going to see them take bigger strides towards a healthcare landscape which has fully embraced innovation and is well on its way to harnessing the power of the Internet of Things (IoT).

"Over the past few years, the stage has been set for greater implementation of IoT projects across various industries and use cases. In 2019, we can expect that the availability and access to location services will expand beyond individual sites to a larger scale as we look forward to wider enterprise adoption. I also anticipate that in the coming year buildings will get smarter, both by initial design and through retrofitting and adaptation, and that there will be some prescient changes in the indoor mapping and positioning technology provider landscape."

The post How Indoor mapping is going to change lives in 2019 appeared first on GeoAwesomeness.

Take a moment to think about everything that we’ve come to expect from our experiences outdoors. Our base expectations include things like efficient, intelligent navigation to our destinations and real-time location information about those journeys using apps like Waze. We expect to be able to order food at any time of day or night, then watch it travel from the restaurant to our house on our phones using various delivery apps with asset tracking.
