Internet of Things, 5G technology, Survey


The Internet of Things (IoT) consists of devices capable of measuring the environment and executing tasks without human intervention. Due to its size, these devices have restrictions in processing, memory, and battery. These devices can reach a trillion nodes and, therefore, requires network connections that are capable of both handle a large number of nodes connected and low energy transmission. The fifth generation of telecommunications technology (5G) is a key concept to address those requirements as new applications and business models require new criteria such as security trustworthy, ultra-low latency, ultra-reliability, and energy efficiency. Although the next generation of connections is at its early stage, progress has been made to achieve 5G enabled IoT technologies. This paper describes a review of the main technologies such as Cloud, Software Defined Network, device-to-device communication, Evolved Package Core and Network Virtual Function Orchestration that are planned to be applied for both fields of 5G and IoT.
