Hyper-Connectivity: The Future Of 5G Network Technology
The new 5G mobile communications standard marks the leap into a new age of hyper-connectivity and opens up new business areas in many areas.
The fifth generation of 5G mobile technology is currently being discussed, particularly in terms of speed increases in the mobile Internet and perhaps even better overall network coverage all over the world.
In fact, 5G marks the leap into a whole new era of hyper-connectivity and opens up new business areas. The Italian IT consultant and system integrator Reply, headquartered in Turin, has examined the development of wireless cell phone technology and its most important areas of application in a study.
In addition to the improved connection between billions of people and things, 5G promises to unleash the potential of technology fields such as artificial intelligence or extended reality. In the coming years, 5G will be groundbreaking in application scenarios for applications that rely on a stable and low-latency connection, such as industrial automation or autonomous driving.
Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) growth market: With the worldwide introduction of commercial 5G networks, the first use cases are emerging in the area of enhanced mobile broadband. These include applications that require a very high bandwidth, such as 5G live streaming & video, extended realty services, and 5G ultra high definition gaming. In 5G gaming, the mobile gaming market is expected to grow exponentially.
Massive Internet of Things – a new IoT era: by 2025 there should be 75 billion IoT-enabled devices. With the ever-increasing number of networked devices and the flood of data they generate, the IoT is becoming the central interface between things, people, and processes. The 5G standard increases the connection density to one million devices per square kilometer and thus leads to the age of Massive IoT (MIoT). 5G creates the conditions for new business areas that are based on data and connectivity. Important trends with high growth are above all consumer IoT, smart cities, and smart buildings.
Mission Critical Control – groundbreaking application scenarios: In sensitive applications such as autonomous driving or critical infrastructures, 5G will lead the way in usage scenarios in the sense of Mission-Critical Control. Low latency and extremely reliable and highly available connections are important here since uninterrupted data exchange in real-time is essential for all applications. The trends with the highest growth rates in this field are autonomous vehicles, industrial automation, robots, and drones.
