The rollout of the next generation of wireless networks has begun in earnest, introducing what many believe will be one of the most seminal technology transformations of a still young digital age. 5G networks, with their dramatic advances in transmission speed, latency, capacity, energy efficiency and connection densities, promise to bring about a smarter and more connected world that will drive massive changes across the global economy.
5G-enabled breakthroughs will open new revenue opportunities and business models for operators and their customers. Powerful new use cases around evolved Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communications (ULLC) and massive Machine-to-Machine Communications (mMTC) will push the boundaries of digital transformation. From new user experiences in augmented and virtual reality and ultra-high definition video streaming, to highspeed fixed wireless, new types of cloud services and applications, autonomous vehicles, and smart cities, buildings, factories and farms—5G will unleash a plethora of new applications and uses that will change the way people work and live.
