Middle East telecoms' adoption of 5G will support the global USD 164 billion Internet of Things market by 2018, announced one of the world's leading technology companies at Mobile World Congress.

The Internet of Things era will see 50 billion connected devices by 2030, with ultrafast gigabit-speed 5G mobile broadband transforming services, from driverless cars to virtual reality government.

Demonstrating the strong market opportunity, 34 percent of telecom revenue will come from new digital services. However, while 80 percent of telecoms said a real-time platform is a top priority, only 65 percent have implemented it, according to a recent SAP report.
