How 5G will change everything [infographic]

Explore real-world examples of how 5G might transform daily life.

5G will revolutionize everything from telemedicine and emergency response to construction and agriculture. It will usher in a new era of ultra-reliable, ultra-fast connectivity where information can be relayed without network delays between people, as well as between densely populated machines.

Many machines can exchange information with other machines. They might identify the location of cargo, for instance, or report a system error and then resolve the error in concert with other machines—without the need for human intervention. In doing so, 5G will provide the key to reimagining entire industries for the better.

How will 5G do this? By enabling better network slicing to support specific use case requirements and streamlining connectivity from the edge to the core to the cloud. To date, there has been a “missing link” preventing emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML) and IoT to reach their full potential. Software-defined 5G networking is that link. It’s the first software-defined architecture to be built for the cloud, making it highly customizable.

The below graphic explores real-world examples of how 5G might transform daily life.
