Reface by the editors:
The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way we live and work. Its success and real value come from the establishment of services on top of the connected IoT devices. According to the Ericsson Mobility Report, there will be more than 30 billion connected devices worldwide by 2023, of which around 20 billion will be IoT-related devices. Between 2017 and 2023, the number of IoT devices is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 19%, driven by promising IoT use cases such as smart wearables, smart display, smart metering, smart power, robotic control/production automation, robotic surgery, autonomous driving cars, and drone surveillance. These applications are usually integrated with wireless mobile communications.
Currently, a number of smart IoT devices exploit cellular networks such as the third generation (3G) and 4G long-term evolution (LTE) to maintain their connectivity and their connection with the cloud data centers. With the exponential growth of data produced by increasingly large numbers of IoT devices, several burning issues remain to be solved in application environments. For example, the transmission latency and reliability of the current cellular networks cannot be guaranteed, which in turn limits the effectiveness and feasibility of many emerging IoT applications such as the tactile Internet, autonomous driving cars, and robotic surgery, all of which require ultra-low latency and ultra-high reliability.
The 5G mobile communication system has been introduced with the capabilities of high throughput, low latency, high reliability, and increased scalability. These capabilities can enable a massive number of devices, with best quality-of-service and quality-of-experience provision, of ubiquitous connectivity solutions to fulfil their diverse IoT application requirements. 5G has the potential to allow the deployment of more Internet-connected devices without concern that existing issues would be exacerbated by an overcrowded network. The high speed and reliable connectivity underpinned by 5G will create new possibilities for IoT services far beyond those available today. In addition, the enabling technologies of 5G—including network function virtualization (NFV) and softwarization, software-defined networking (SDN), massive multiple input–multiple output, mobile/edge computing, and ultra-dense networks—have great potential to usher in a new IoT era, aiming to smoothly and flexibly support heterogeneous IoT services with distinct business characteristics under a massive number of smart devices. Furthermore, the 5G IoT will bring a rich source of Big Data. The powerful role of Big Data analytics in 5G will undoubtedly benefit IoT advancement.
However, how the enabling technologies in 5G—whether integrated into the whole or as a part of a system—can seamlessly fuel the IoT revolution remain challenging. This raises new considerations of network design, resource deployment, management, quality of experience, standards, and policy and regulation of 5G-enabled IoT. It is therefore of critical importance to devise novel solutions by designing smart 5G-enabled IoT paradigms integrated with the enabling technologies of 5G. The IoT has been established as a new cross-discipline research topic, requiring the anticipation of the technical and practical challenges faced by mixed research studies that cross multiple disciplines.
