Sudharsan Raghunathan, Senior Market Analyst, Enterprise Networking, IDC India says, “The advent of IOT in Indian enterprises has enabled multiple organizations to build use cases around smart processes and improve interoperability. However, increased network speed and lower latencies are crucial for attaining maximum advantage. 5G would act as a catalyst in driving the adoption of IOT, thereby enabling Indian enterprises to revisit their approach towards their existing networking architecture/infrastructure.”―CT Bureau
