Which sectors will benefit the most from the realisation of 5G?
5G is the generation that is said to bring together the advancements from 2G, 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi, and in doing so, will support the exponential growth in mobile data demand and expectations.
A large proportion of this demand originates from the advancements in IoT and what ‘could be’ if the infrastructure and connectivity were in place to support it. 5G, with its reduced latency, has the potential to make some technology advancements that were previously unfathomable, a reality.
There has been shift in focus with 5G in comparison to previous roll outs, in that this generation is seen very much as the ‘system of systems’ – bringing together a range of technologies into a ‘network of networks’ and focusing on industry benefits, moving the focus away from the mobile device end user. Although, it goes without saying that the end user will ultimately benefit from cheaper goods through seamless manufacturing and quicker journeys through connected vehicles, for example.
So, with claims of enabling the full realisation of IoT and the industry’s interests at its forefront, we took a look at the top 5 sectors that are set to benefit from 5G.
