What 5G will achieve
Widespread 5G connectivity will eliminate information islands, boost the prosperity of a digitalized sharing economy, promote changes to existing production methods and lifestyles, and finally improve people’s quality of life. 5G can drive the process of full digitalization through the integration of wireless connections, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and big data. Based on a 5G infrastructure platform, the Mobile Broadband network will facilitate the transformation of diverse industries. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has revolutionized 4G capability by 10 times capability by defining 5G to reach 20 Gbps per cell coverage, to connect 1 million connections per Km2, and to provide 1 ms ultra-latency services. An example of such speeds is that a 1GB movie can be downloaded in seconds.
New business opportunities
With the combination of diverse wireless connectivity, mobility, IoT, cloud computing and big data innovative technologies, 5G offers a more comprehensive set of capabilities than other communication technologies. The 5G communication infrastructure will become a platform that realizes the target of enabling multiple industries with a single network. By taking advantage of the rapid and reliable communication capabilities of 5G networks, as well as the enormous number of connections, 5G will enable operators to better serve customers in all industries. Telecom operators will be able to position themselves as the ‘best enablers’ for industry applications.
