Decoding 5G: What does this future tech means for you

New Delhi: With 75 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices expected to be in place by 2025, the world is at the cusp of experiencing a technology that will change the way live today.

With 5G commercial networks being switched on, the first use cases are enhanced mobile broadband, which will bring better experiences for smartphone users, and fixed wireless access, providing fiber speeds without fiber to homes.

Being able to download a full-length HD movie in seconds and share your wow-moments with friends -- that's just the beginning.

Commercial 5G networks are starting to go live across the world.

"The true value of 5G is the opportunity it presents for people, business and the world at large: industries, regions, towns and cities that are more connected, smarter and more sustainable," says Ericsson which is leading 5G research and deployment globally.

Although we have some idea how 5G smartphone will look like, the technology as a whole is not yet fully understood by billions of people who are set to reap the benefits when it explodes - at home, office or on the go.

In 2020, worldwide 5G wireless network infrastructure revenue will reach $4.2 billion, an 89 per cent increase from 2019 revenue of $2.2 billion, according to Gartner.

Additionally, investments in 5G NR (New Radio) network infrastructure will account for 6 per cent of the total wireless infrastructure revenue of communications service providers (CSPs) in 2019, and that this figure will reach 12 per cent in 2020.

5G New Radio (NR) is the global standard for a unified, more capable 5G wireless air interface.

For the world-at-large, 5G is enabling a new wave of innovation.

It has the potential for changing the world, further powering the trends in tech today: IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), AR (Augmented Reality), autonomous vehicles and many more.

However, with billions of devices in action, a growing strain will be placed on requirements of wireless networks. Contemporary WiFi and cellular networks won't be enough to support the influx of IoT deviThis story has been published from a wire agency feed without modifications to the text cess.
