[Executive Summary] The State of 5G
Each advancement of the modern wireless network has brought distinct change. Compared to 4G, the fifth-generation mobile network is expected to produce three primary use cases, with the capacity to move more data, be more responsive, and connect millions of devices at once. More specifically, this includes enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-reliable, low latency communications (URLLC) – minimal buffer times – and increased connectivity, allowing billions of devices and applications to come online seamlessly and communicate simultaneously thanks to Massive Machine Type Communications (MMTC).
The ambition associated with 5G cannot be denied or understated. But will it live up to the hype?
We set out to survey the wireless ecosystem from manufacturers, operators, test houses, and labs, service and repair specialists, network maintenance and installation professionals, and more to get a thorough status report on 5G.
