The quest for improved communications among objects interconnected in a network has long been awaited. The current fourth generation network (4G) does not enable the range of services the future require, as the fifth-generation network (5G) will be faster and more flexible. The 5G networks and Internet of Things technology seem to be the reality that best describes the basic principles of the future generation mobile network technology (5G). It is anticipated to let loose a substantial IoT environment where millions of connected devices will get their communication requirements concerning speed, latency, and cost. The fifth-generation network (5G) symbolizes a fundamental change in structural design in the communication network which will open a renowned future revenue generation through ground-breaking services made possible through 5G-enabled devices with laptops, smartphones, smart cities, and tablets. The use of 5G seems to be pictured as a complicated union of future-generation technical improvements on telecommunication networks which will assist 5G to become the mechanism for future-generation IoT services. These include highly developed inflection plans for accessing a wireless network, network sharing abilities, mechanized network request, network function virtualization, and support for cloud-optimized distributed network applications. In this paper, a framework of the expected integration of 5G and internet of things (IoT) will be presented showing how the expected solution of the communication need for millions of people, interconnected devices, smart cities, smartphones in a network will be achieved, and communication among users will be enhanced. The presented framework that would help to understand, evaluate and access the various generations of mobile networks, and view how the 5G network will be an improvement for better performance were discussed.
