The way in which we communicate, connect and share data is set to change what we call 5G. You might have heard of it before and might know to some degree that it is something that is meant to change our lives, but the potential impact of the technology and innovation behind 5G goes much further than boosting the bars on your mobile.
5G enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices.
5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users. Higher performance and improved efficiency empower new user experiences and connects new industries.
By 2025, the world will reach 1.8 billion 5G connections—led by East Asia and North America, two regions that could each see nearly half of mobile connections operating on 5G networks.
