A SMART CONNECTED WORLD

The fifth generation of wireless technology, or 5G as its commonly known, is the next evolution of mobile broadband technology and is one of the cornerstones of a Gigabit Society. Unlike other wireless evolutions that brought incremental improvements in wireless performance, 5G will enable a major societal paradigm shift, powering the Internet of Everything. From connecting billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices to enabling autonomous vehicles, to enhanced broadband and tactile Internet applications, 5G is the key to the smart, connected world of the future.

SERVICES-DRIVEN,TRANSFORMATIONAL TECHNOLOGY

5G is a transformational technology that offers both performance and flexibility to support multiple service requirements. 5G promises network connectivity 10 to 100 times faster than 4G networks, with latency of less than 1msec, making possible real-time applications such as mixed reality and autonomous vehicles. In addition, 5G supports massive scale and highly efficient spectral usage. This will enable billions of connected devices and machine-type communications (MTC) that will give birth to new smart health, agriculture and industrial applications.
