As networks and companies race toward being the first to establish themselves as leaders in the 5G playground, there is still significant work to be done. The widespread adoption of 5G technologies are not expected until 2020, which means a vast level of preparation is needed, both in terms of infrastructure and technology. Nonetheless, it's never too early to dream up what this new technology can enable.
The G in 5G stands for generation. With the launch of each new generation, new expectations have been born, new visions have been drawn up and new technologies have been introduced. Each "G" of wireless technology has brought consumers and companies new capabilities. At this point in time, we know this for sure: 5G will deliver significantly higher speeds and capacity in wireless connectivity.
When 5G becomes commercially available, it will power a truly connected lifestyle. The vision we've built around the Internet of Things (IoT) will be amplified – and new opportunities will be born. As we march closer to the 2020 milestone, take this opportunity to better understand 5G and how it will drive a more connected world. View our infographic below:
