Bluetooth tags have been revolutionary in connecting our digital and physical worlds, but have yet to achieve their full potential. What if the technology, marketing power, and infrastructure reach of the telecommunications industry were to get behind the Ambient IoT use cases which Bluetooth is starting to enable? It’s happening now. The standards bodies developing 5G & 6G have recently set their sights on Ambient IoT.
This week, we talk with Amichai Sanderovich – a veteran of this space and Wiliot’s representative on the standards bodies that are driving 5G & 6G. With his help, we understand the current state of play of Ambient IoT as part of 5G and 6G, where it might go and what the implications are.
