The emerging 5G technology has attracted intense interest from the ICT industry and wider community due to its potential to increase opportunities for developments related to IoT including M2M communications, virtual reality, Artificial Intelligence and mission critical communication. It is also expected to enhance overall capacity, speed and latency of the mobile networks.
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has development underway towards a global standard. While it is expected that the full standardization process won’t be completed until around early 2020 – in 2019 we are beginning to see a clearer picture of what 5G entails and many countries are considering spectrum requirements and conducting preliminary trials and testing.
In addition, interest in 5G devices is beginning to escalate as manufacturers jockey for position and there are numerous devices in development.
In recent years there has become an obvious “race to market” competition around the world with operators, manufacturers and governments all wanting to be the first to capture the opportunities presented by the 5G evolution.
