Abstract: This project consists of two main parts. The first part of this project is a literature review that focuses on papers and publications that discuss the concept of cellular data such as 4G and 5G in the Internet of Things (IoT). Proposals made by prominent authors in the field will be presented and evaluated. An additional section of this first part deals with background information on this subject in order to familiarise the reader with the basic knowledge about this subject. In the second part an IoT prototype is designed with the aim of being installed in a home environment. This prototype runs, but not exclusively, on 4G or, in the near future, 5G. The prototype built was functionally tested and where possible improved. The prototype is implemented twice with different setups. In the first setup an Arduino is used as a controlling/monitoring platform, controlled from a webpage. The webpage is hosted on a PC running the WinLAMP version 2 application and connected to the Arduino via the WiFi router. The setup does not require an Internet connection and it can be controlled by any Wi- Fi device connected to the same WiFi router. However, if the WiFi router is connected to the Internet, the IoT platform can be controlled by using a 4G, or any other, device connected to the Internet. This makes it possible for the user to control and monitor the devices from home or away from it. In the second setup the Arduino IoT prototype device platform is connected to a 4G WiFi Router to connect it to the Internet, instead of using a traditional Ethernetconnected modem. This is used in cases where there is an unstable or even no Ethernet connection. The tests were made according to the specifications of the prototype. The purpose of the testing was to find its limits and efficiency and in order to provide insights and knowledge in this field of study that could inform any future work.
