“Potentially, this 5G technology will become more important than the range of missiles and fighter jet capability. Think about it. Control the 5G network, and you don’t need anything else”.
5G is going to change our lives according to Kevin Bacon.
There has been a lot of talk about 5G in the newspapers and television over the last couple of years.
This report sets out to explain the development of the 5G network. We aim to answer:
- What’s happening?
- What does it mean?
- What’s the risk? – Geopolitical, security and health concerns
- What can we do about it?
What does it mean?
Increased efficiencies in bandwidths, energy usage and potential utilisation to deliver a dramatically improved quality of three-level service grades. Excellent mobile broadband that delivers a high rate of mobile internet rates over larger areas.
Massive Machine type device to device communications and ultra-reliable and low latency communication. Instant information transmission for devices such as autonomous cars and robots. 5G will open up new possibilities with the internet of things and navigation. Also, fixed (gigabit per second bandwidth) wireless data urban connectivity. Edge computing services, enabling computing power closer to the sensor.
The elimination of latency. Video delivery services that will compete with today’s multi-channel distributors.
Opening up new uses that have not even been invented yet.
5G is a game changer, and it will be no longer acceptable for leaders not to understand technology. 5G and it’s associated technology will put unprepared businesses on a slippery slope to demise. Modern technology has already transformed our lives, much more than most think it has.
With 5G there will be soon no doubt.
It’s all about finding the right Intelligence to create certainty so you get the most out of your investment. We hope you find this report a useful summary.
