Find all the latest news and buzzwords from 5G innovations that are primed to connect the world in ways thought impossible just a few years ago.
5G, the next generation cellular network, is expected to revolutionise entire industries when it is finally launched in 2020. As early as now, businesses are starting to prepare themselves for its arrival and many are taking huge steps to ensure that the technology will work to their advantage.
Of all the industries that are expected to be impacted, few stand to be revolutionised more than the telecom industry. In the past few years alone, millions of smartphones, tablets and personal computers have been sold, forcing businesses to up their wireless systems and the standards they follow. In addition, it is expected that by 2020, there would be 26 billion connected devices, which will eventually rely on 5G networks to properly function.
To address the growing need for more reliable and low-latency mobile connection, it is important for players in the telecom industry to start expanding their existing infrastructure in order to offer higher speeds, better storage services, and millions of more connections on a yearly basis.
Some companies are in the process of laying foundations for the development of fixed wireless networks using the earliest available 5G technology. While these efforts may seem to be small for now, they will bring us a few steps closer to fewer delays and extraordinarily faster data delivery.
