Despite the hype surrounding 5G smartphones, cell phone transmitters are not yet sophisticated enough to fully support 5G. Meanwhile, major telecommunications companies are struggling to expand 5G networks due to lengthy cell site installations and delays in many regions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, it could take years for 5G technology to […]

In October, the United States announced a pair of ambitious projects to expand and test 5G in rural regions and on U.S. military bases. At the end of the month, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted an order intended to help expand 5G in rural America. The “5G Fund for Rural America” (“5G Fund”) will […]
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 […]
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 […]
The coronavirus pandemic has created some major setbacks for telecommunications companies as they struggle to roll out 5G networks. At the same time, the pandemic is driving demand for the technology as people increasingly rely on the internet while working from home. “We’ve seen the demand [for 5G] is higher than ever…I think there’s good […]
The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to cause major delays in the deployment of 5G networks worldwide. However, these delays are likely to vary by region. In the U.S., the rollout has managed to maintain its current pace, albeit with some regional setbacks. While Europe should see major delays, other regions such as China may see […]
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 […]
Organizations have increasingly set their sights on edge computing as a solution to their data storage needs. According to a survey from Forrester Analytics Global Business Technographics® Mobility, 57% of mobility decision-makers want to incorporate edge computing into their plans by the end of 2020. Because it uses a number of smart devices around the […]
As LTE technology evolves toward 5G, it’s vital for technical professionals and industry leaders to understand how to deliver on the 5G vision and meet consumer demand for higher communication speeds.
