5G refers to the fifth generation of wireless networks and technology that will lead to improving data speed, volume and latency and will change the standard of public and private sector operations, from autonomous vehicles to smart cities. 5G will dramatically impact the future of global communication networks; enhance decision-making and strategic capabilities; link to multiple systems and devices while sharing information in real time; increase operational efficiency while driving innovation across products and business models; and will ultimately drive interoperability across networks. With the improved efficiency and reliability, 5G will lead to improved data visibility and collection, improved customer experiences and new ways of working.
