Abstract: Industrial Internet of Things (IIOTs) is an all-encompassing term referring to a myriad of technologies, applications, and use cases. The future of enterprise technology requires resilient 5G networks to accommodate the growing demand for connectivity. Although 4G long term evolution (LTE) is sufficient for many IIOT use cases, machine to machine (M2M) communications, and enterprise connectivity, only low latency, high-speed, and high-capacity 5G networks can quench the needs of capacity hunger mission-critical and data-intensive applications. Furthermore, 5G NR technology supports massive machine-type communications (mMTC), essential for the proliferation of IIOT devices. With mMTC, it is possible to support many devices with low power consumption and low complexity. To reduce the complexity and accelerate the 5G rollouts, the operators deploy 5G built out on non-standalone architecture (5G-NSA), where the traffic at the core falls back to the 4G network for mobility management entity (MME), home subscriber server (HSS), policy and charging rules function (PCRF).

Keywords: 5GC; private 5G; standalone 5G; spectrum sharing; NR; gNB.
