There is great interest in the launch of 5G networks across many industries, including wind power. One of the reasons for the focus on 5G technology is that it will be used to connect thousands of industrial IoT (IIoT) sensors and devices. These sensors have special communication characteristics that 5G has been specifically designed to handle. What many don’t know, however, is that many “5G” applications can actually be handled by today’s 4G/LTE networks. This opens up some intriguing applications of IIoT sensors and analytics in the wind power industry not only in the future, but already, today.
