5G offers world’s biggest mobile market a gateway to the industrial internet

Networks based on 5G, the next-generation mobile technology, are expected to start commercial service from 2020. These would support a broader adoption of consumer and industrial applications that take advantage of artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) technologies. The countries that launch 5G first are likely to see increased economic benefits from connecting billions of devices and building new services on the advanced mobile infrastructure.

The fifth generation of mobile technology means more than just faster data speeds and greater network capacity. It also provides a foundation for connecting an unlimited number of machines to one another for day-to-day communication. A 5G network will support: a million connected devices per square kilometre; transmit a package of data with a delay of just 1 millisecond and provide peak data download speeds of up to 20 gigabits per second.
