Businesses must align their roadmaps with the emergence of 5G-enabled technologies to stay at a competitive edge.


FREMONT, CA: 5G promises ultra-high data rates, tremendous traffic capacity, and extremely low latency, ushering in a new era of global digital transformation. The development of 5G infrastructure and connectivity, IT and platforms, and applications and services is moving quickly. As a result, new ecosystem relationships are springing up all over the place.

Smartphones have given way to dongles, modules, robots, routers, laptops, TVs, and even vending machines as 5G devices. Autonomous vehicles, telemedicine, smart factories, retail, and entertainment leverage 5G applications.

5G enabled revolution across all industries

Manufacturing: Automation, AI, the IoT, and augmented reality are used more and more by manufacturers. Robots, machines, and devices operate independently with little human interaction in a highly digitized and linked environment. These pieces will be woven together by the fast speeds, low latency, and increased connectivity.

Discrete manufacturing: Industry leaders embrace IoT, robotics, and self-driving cars. Digital engineering necessitates accessibility, adaptability, and controllability in this situation. Integration of IT and OT, automation, and artificial intelligence are often at the forefront.

Connected vehicles: The connected automobile sector will be transformed and sustained by connection, device, and edge infrastructure, particularly the 5G-led connectivity layer. Thanks to this technology, fully autonomous vehicles may now function in controlled and natural environments, such as densely populated places. It enables comprehensive vehicle-to-environment cellular communication. Vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-pedestrian, and vehicle-to-infrastructure are examples of these. Advanced diagnostics and prognostics will also increase safety and long-term viability.

5G in other sectors: A growing number of industries are seeing the benefits of 5G. Electric vehicles, distributed energy resources, and storage are disrupting the energy and utility industries. On the other hand, these companies are discovering that 5G wireless transmission can enable fully automated and dependable smart grids; millions of edge devices can now send high-quality data at high speeds.

The impact of 5G is rapidly expanding. Autonomous vehicles, smart manufacturing, immersive retail, safer transportation, precision agriculture, and remote healthcare are the uses enabled by this latest generation of cellular broadband. Any use case that requires a lot of data, automation, hyperfast analytics, and minimal latency is a good fit for 5G.
