5G, the fifth generation of wireless technology promises ultra-high mobile internet speeds and greater capacity. A key enabler for high-speed, low-latency wireless broadband services like IoT, AI, VR, AR and connected vehicles, it will form the foundation for pervasive wireless business processes in verticals.5G could account for as many as 1.1 billion connections by 2025, as per GSMA, covering one-third of the world’s population. It is not just a new generation of technology, it also marks a new era in which connectivity will become increasingly fluid and flexible.
Commercially, 5G is a necessity, resulting in B2B space opening up before telecoms. In the future, factories, robots, 3D-printing, advanced materials, and sensors will contribute to increased efficiency and flexibility.5G will enable true digitalization by connecting and integrating technologies like IoT, cloud, big data, and cybersecurity solutions. 5G technologies will offer a ubiquitous platform for interconnecting machines, robots, processes, auto-guided vehicles, goods, and remote workersand can play a key enabling role in integrating these technologies.
The future 5G networks will rely on three key elements: spectrum, infrastructure, and backhaul. The key difference between 5G and earlier generations of mobile technology is that the focus of research is on finding the best techniques to improve spectrum utilization rather than on improving spectrum efficiency. Expected a broad commercial network update debut in 2020, 5G will make its presence felt in 2020 Olympic Games in Japan. The first version of 5G might be deployed as early as 2019, and the World Radio Conference will decide the frequency bands in millimetric bands, which are candidate pioneer bands that have been globally agreed.
