5G technology, the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, is expected to launch across the world by 2020, bringing three types of innovation: greater speed to be able to move more data; lower latency to improve responsiveness; and the ability to connect many devices at once. While many are focused on what they will be able to do with faster smartphones – 5G is expected to provide average download speeds of 1GBps – others are looking toward the innovations 5G will make possible.
“5G will be the platform for invention,” says a PSB Research report commissioned by Qualcomm. The survey found that 91 percent of worldwide respondents expect 5G to generate “new products and services that have yet to be invented,” and 87 percent expect new industries to emerge.
It’s predicted that 5G technology will bring opportunity to many industries:
5G will also contribute to the Internet-of-Things through machine learning and artificial intelligence, and its evolution will be used with appliances, alarm systems, health monitors, parking meters and traffic signals as well as for ultra-fast wireless delivery of video and data files.
