In fact, 5G networks are going to be powered by mmWave technology. However, the hardware required to use mmWave is expensive and power-hungry, which are significant deterrents to it being deployed in many IoT ap- plications. "To address the existing challenges in exploiting mmWave for IoT applications we created a novel mmWave network called mmX," said Omid Abari, an assistant pro- fessor in Waterloo's David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science. In comparison to WiFi and Bluetooth, which are slow for many IoT applications, mmX provides much higher bitrate. "mmX will not only improve our WiFi and wire- less experience but also receive much faster internet connectivity for all IoT devices. It can further be used in applications, such as virtual reality, autonomous cars, data centers, and wireless cellular networks," said Ali Abedi, a postdoctoral fellow at the Cheriton School of Computer Science. (Source: University of Waterloo) Researchers at the University of Waterloo have devel- oped a cheaper and more efficient method for internet of things (IoT) devices to receive high-speed wireless con- nectivity. With 75 billion IoT devices expected to be in place by 2025, a growing strain will be placed on requirements of wireless networks. Contemporary WiFi and cellular net- works won't be enough to support the influx of IoT devic- es, the researchers highlighted in their new study.
