5G heralds connectivity we can take for granted
When mains electricity was first introduced, it was spotty and unreliable. Now, we don’t talk about it as a technology or even as a variable, it’s a given. 5G with its ultra-high-speeds, bandwidth and low latency promises the same for connectivity, making mission critical communications possible between just about everything. This kind of connectivity is the essence, the life blood of the Internet of Things, of Smart Cities, of connected medicine and of autonomous driving. Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X) communications is the enabler that will likely accelerate the adoption of driverless vehicles. 5G connectivity will enable 8K streaming and virtual and augmented Reality (VR/AR) entertainment and gaming. And 5G could well revolutionize the way supply chains and manufacturing ecosystems are connected and managed. Few were more excited and animated about 5G than Verizon CEO, Hans Vestberg in his keynote address.
