According to telco equipment maker Ericsson the Internet of Things will become a bigger connected-device category than smartphones in 2018--beleieve it or not. This could be mind-blowing (well, maybe not quite that severe, but significant, still). 5G take-up will be faster than 4G was, it thinks. One major reason for that speed-up is that “5G development is being driven by new use cases,” the report explains. “Greater capacity will allow more devices to be connected,” Ericsson says. “And lower energy requirements will extend device battery lives more than ten times what we see today.” I can certainly see how that could be.
