Today we are witnessing the start of an unprecedented smart revolution driven by the latest advanced digital and mobile technology: 5G.
5G promises to deliver higher data rates, lower latency, and more reliable connectivity. In a sense, these improvements are already happening, at a slow, but steady pace, through existing technologies and services, such as fourth-generation long-term evolution (4G LTE), fixed-broadband service, WiFi, and the Internet-of-Things (IoT).
Once 5G technology is commercialized, however, these new applications will come in much greater variety, with enhanced precision — and the speed of change will be much faster.
5G technology is forecasted to provide 100 times faster data speeds than the current 4G LTE technology. It is also expected to enable network connectivity with ultra-low latency equal to less than one-tenth that of present communication systems. It will also make massive connectivity possible, so that hundreds of…
