The B2B segment that will gain the most value from 5G IoT

5G has recently been released in Indonesia by Telkomsel. It promises better range, speed, more connections, smaller latency, and with it better reliability. As a way to take full advantage of this new connectivity, Indonesian businesses need to know where 5G IoT’s value will come from, who will capture it, and how to best apply it for optimum benefit.

We cited McKinsey & Company’s research that analyzed 150 potential B2B and B2C use cases. It primarily focused on Industry 4.0, smart cities, smart energy, connected offices, smart security, and connected health. In these areas, there are 60 distinctive B2B use cases in which 5G will be the main communication technology. Many others are new standard use cases where 5G will replace existing connectivity solutions to ensure future readiness.
