How Will 5G Impact Local Communities?

Next-generation 5G wireless technology has the power to transform local communities into smart cities. With help from sensors connected to 5G networks, local officials would be able to collect data that would tell them how to improve air quality and prevent wildfires, traffic lights would be able to “talk” to each other in order to […]

This New Discovery Could Expand 5G Beyond Cities

Next generation 5G networks are estimated to deliver at least ten times the speeds of current 4G networks. These lightning-fast speeds would revolutionize the internet by allowing for dramatically faster downloads. When 5G is fully deployed, it is expected to transform entire industries including  transportation, healthcare, and manufacturing. However, the full roll out of 5G […]

Developments and Challenges Influencing the Advancement of 5G 

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic sweeping the globe has caused the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), the international organization that creates telecommunication standards, to delay the release of two 5G standards. These standards will determine 5G requirements for standalone (SA) networks, industrial Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) systems. The standards, Rel-16 Stage 3 […]
