Fifth-generation (5G) wireless networks are expected to arrive in scale, providing faster connections for consumers and enterprises, and opening revenue opportunities for telecommunication companies. In the short term, 5G technology will be mainly applied in smartphones, modems/hotspots and fixed wireless access devices. It may take time for 5G devices to be widely used, but 2019 is becoming the starting point for a dramatic change in the wireless network industry. 5G can provide hundredfold increases in traffic capacity and network efficiency over 4G, and this has transformative potential on the future of connectivity worldwide.
