5G is the imminent, transformative wireless communications system that will revolutionize connectivity by enabling many more devices to communicate far faster and more reliably. Unlike 3G and 4G, 5G is more than just a speed upgrade (though it provides massive improvements in latency and bandwidth!). It will enable a massive number of devices—a million devices per square kilometer, including rapidly moving devices—to communicate with each other nearly instantaneously. 5G will enable new classes of increasingly powerful devices, applications and uses—including making connected cars feasible, smart cities more integrated, and ultimately produce the fabric for achieving the vision of a comprehensive Internet of Things (IoT). The levels of integration and performance enabled by 5G will enable a seamless human-machine-things integration, and that will enable revolutionary improvements in healthcare, security, entertainment, and more.
