Connected industrial machines can sense a wide array of information used to make key decisions within the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). A sensor within an edge node can be spatially far removed from any data aggregation point. It must connect through a gateway that links edge data with a network.

Development is well underway on Gigabit LTE cellular communications systems that promise an order of magnitude increase in data transfer rates and 5G is close behind. Small cell access nodes will form an essential part of both systems but new communications processors are needed to make these a reality.
