The reality of 5G is here. The network started to roll out in the United States about two years ago and it is still in the early stages. The fifth generation of mobile connectivity is taking over it’s younger sibling LTE or 4G. It’s presenting new connectivity opportunities and opening what seems like endless doors for increased technology growth and advancement.
Speeds/ Bandwidth/ Latency
How do you feel about downloading a two-hour movie in 10 seconds as compared to 10 minutes? Some experts say it could eventually reach speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G (https://www.vxchnge.com/blog/5g-statistics). You’ll be able to do everything you can do with 4G but 10 times faster. Larger bandwidth means you can connect more devices to your personal network without lagging or spotty connections. It’s also set to reduce latency, or the time it takes for a cell phone to connect to a call.
Impacting Tech in Most Industries
Healthcare, transportation, education, manufacturing, agriculture, gaming, financial services, media, marketing, AR/VR, real estate, public safety, shopping, restaurants, tourism, and defense, will all benefit from faster speeds. Here’s a look at how 5G is impacting some of these industries: https://www.cbinsights.com/research/5g-technology-disrupting-industries/
Automation, AR/VR, Smart Factories, & Smart Cities
The future advancement of our society is going to grow with 5G. Automated tech in factories such as tethered and untethered robots could be controlled remotely and increase productivity. Augmented and virtual reality systems could do everything from helping surgeons navigate tough procedures, to putting you right on the 50-yard line on the football field during the Super Bowl. Increased connectivity and bandwidth will allow self-driving cars to communicate with street lights preventing traffic crashes, and educators to teach from any part of the world with distance learning. The opportunities are seemingly endless.
