The 5G network will be a true game changer for the entire world and the next generation of wireless technology. With full deployment over the next few years, it will enhance the lives of people all around the world.

5G connectivity will enable immersive video and gaming experiences, remote telehealth, self-driving vehicles, and new applications that will change the way we work, live and play. To fully realize the generational opportunities of 5G, massive investment from telecommunications companies is required in new wireless spectrum, technology and infrastructure.

5G will offer unprecedented speed on 5G devices. The 5G network is already available in a few Canadian cities, towns and communities in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Québec, growing and expanding quickly as everyone wants to get a hold of the latest,fastest gadgets with this technology.

What exactly is 5G?

5G is the 5th generation mobile network. It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. 5G enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices at an increased  connection speed of up to 20 Gbps.

5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users. Higher performance and improved efficiency, empower new user experiences and connect new industries.

Needless to say, this technology will simply change the world the way we know it.. With so many applications it will simply be a matter of time before AI (Artificial Intelligence) starts to take center stage in our lives, AI will allow machines and systems to function with intelligence levels similar to that of humans. In a nutshell, 5G speeds up the services on the cloud while AI analyzes and learns from the same data faster.

Who will use 5G?

According to www.qualcomm.com the average consumer is expected to use close to 11 GB of data per month on their smartphone in 2022. This is driven by explosive growth in video traffic as mobile is increasingly becoming the source of media and entertainment, as well as the massive growth in always-connected cloud computing and experiences.

4G completely changed how we consume information. In the past decade we have witnessed leaps and bounds in the mobile app industry around services such as video streaming, ride sharing, food delivery and more.

5G will expand the mobile ecosystem to new industries. This will contribute to cutting-edge user experiences such as boundless extreme reality (XR), seamless IoT capabilities, new enterprise applications, local interactive content and instant cloud access, to name a few.

With a myriad of services that will arise from this new technology, what do you feel are the things that will apply the most to you and your business? How will you make the best use of this technology? What do you wish you accomplished with it? These are the questions that we have to start asking ourselves.
