Boosting Productivity in Indonesia’s Main IoT Sectors with 5G

The digital era, also known as the fourth industrial revolution, is marked by several types of advancements in technologies, one of them is the advancement of the internet of things (IoT). It allows various devices to be connected via the internet from personal computers, smart devices, transportation, to home appliances. Additionally, The imminent arrival of 5G will promote advancement in IoT technology. Various devices can now transfer swaths of data more rapidly, maximizing efficiency and minimizing errors in the process.

Currently, many companies are willing to invest in IoT technology. Based on  research by International Data Corporation (IDC), the IoT spending of companies in the Asia Pacific region (excluding Japan) will grow at 10 percent and above this year compared to the previous year which was at 7.1 percent.

With the surge of interests from its neighboring countries, Indonesia is not merely interested in just riding the wave. According to the Chairperson of the Indonesian Startup Technology Association (Atsindo), Handito Joewono, the IoT spending in Indonesia in 2021 is estimated to be greater than the Asia Pacific average. He also stated that banking, government, and education are the three main sectors in Indonesia that will utilize and be benefited by IoT technology.

Here is how these sectors will also be benefited from 5G technologies:

1. Banking

With the rise of e-banking capability, the application of 5G technology will mainly focus on customer experience. This technology allows the computing capacity that does not require data to be processed in the cloud which will increase security in communication. This is known as “edge computing”. Furthermore, it will support faster e-banking’s virtual reality operation. Several banks in The USA have utilized augmented reality to make account management, and purchasing processes faster and more convenient. Using the mobile banking app with augmented reality capability, customers can purchase desired objects using their mobile camera. Some may even manage their investment in the stock market using Virtual Reality devices.

2. Government

The implementation of 5G technology can improve connectivity throughout the nation. In remote locations far from the reach of the central government, IoT devices can be deployed to support every aspect of life for the local communities. The devices can provide processed data alludes to agriculture, healthcare, and livelihood in the area. With low-latency and faster data transmission, the data yielded from many areas are virtually transferred in real-time as if it has been processed locally.

3. Education

5G IoT allows the implementation of smart classes that can help track students’ activities in school while adding a layer of fun to the experience. For example, implementing augmented reality as interactive visualisation for study materials. Students can have virtual demonstrations on how the laws of physics can affect planetary movements, or perhaps go through a game to test how internal human organs work. Additionally, 5G enables computer vision cameras to notify parents of their child’s real-time condition if an emergency or an accident happens.

5G technology will increase reliability of IoT devices in these main sectors. Thus, it will elevate productivity and streamline any drawbacks in connectivity. Indonesia’s main intent is to maximize utilization of IoT.

With that being said, IoT will become a catalyst in the future of business and logistics. And Indonesia is willing to take part in utilizing this innovation.
