5G IoT networks will require a new architecture with regard to radio integration with Edge Computing in order to satisfy the enterprise IoT automation needs of industrial customers.  mmWave bands will be necessary to keep up with rising demand, so the industry is currently pouring money into deployment of base stations and development of client devices. The migration to mobile 5G usage will be tricky, with tradeoffs on beamwidth, link budget, mobility and cost coming into play. This presentation will provide an overview of how 5G and Edge Computing will need to converge before market growth can accelerate.
