5G-enabled IoT applications include autonomous vehicles, robotic surgery, and critical infrastructure monitoring, to name a few.

FREMONT, CA: The fifth generation of wireless cellular technology is known as 5G. Depending on the environment and the technology employed, it will produce faster speeds than any previous generation—up to 3000 Mbps (3 Gbps) in real-world situations and will compete with fiber-optic cable speeds. With 5G, movies that took minutes to download on 4G will be downloaded in seconds.

While smartphones and other devices are the most obvious applications for 5G, the technology has many other uses. The internet of things (IoT), for instance, will significantly benefit from 5G's speed and bandwidth, especially as the market matures. According to IoT Analytics, there will be 12 billion IoT connections worldwide by 2020. By 2025, it is expected that there will be over 30 billion IoT connections worldwide, with more than four IoT devices for every person on the planet. 5G-enabled IoT applications include autonomous vehicles, robotic surgery, and critical infrastructure monitoring, to name a few.

The quantum increase in connectivity offered by 5G presents an enormous opportunity for various businesses, but it also sets the stage for widespread disruption. Manufacturing, healthcare, and the auto industry are already embracing technology and becoming more connected. The impact of 5G on these businesses could be revolutionary for three primary reasons once it becomes widely available:

  • 5G has a decreased latency, allowing more significant data streams to be transmitted faster.
  • 5G is more dependable, allowing for improved data transfer in adverse conditions.
  • 5G is more adaptable than Wi-Fi, supporting a greater range of devices, sensors, and wearables.

The whole telecom sector is keen to profit on the transition as wireless carriers continue to increase access to 5G services in the coming year. Manufacturers of 5G devices also play a crucial role in 5G adoption: device manufacturers require increasing coverage, while wireless networks require a growing number of compatible devices. Even when 5G services become more widely available in some form (many 5G users will still be unable to experience the scorching speeds that the technology is capable of), 4G will continue to be the default option in most regions for some time.
