What’s driving the growth of 5G
The need for speed — high data transfer speed with minimal delay — is one demand driver, along with the increased adoption of IoT devices and laying the foundation for increased use of automation technologies.?
The highly infectious nature of the disease this year， has challenged many industries that depended on humans to get their products to market. For example, essential businesses have turned to autonomous mobile robots (AMR) to help fill labor shortfalls. AMRs are a class of robots packed with sensors and internal computers and, while AMRs are not a 5G device, the connectivity of the sensors and computers will benefit from a robust 5G infrastructure.?
Media and entertainment, all of which benefited from increased consumption as a direct result of social distancing, will also profit from an acceleration of 5G technologies.?
“Strong consumer demand for 5G will eventually drive the replacement of the legacy infrastructure,” Ghanma said. “Additionally, school closures and the shift to online classrooms spotlighted digital inequities once hidden by educational bridges. Building out 5G infrastructure will help even out the disparities.”?
“Much of this has to be resolved before we see the full expansion to 5G’s promise,” he said. “The ecosystem needs to grow for all things to plug in and flourish. 3GPP new releases with enhanced 5G features, affordable 5G modules, edge computing and comprehensive 5G network coverage with fiber backhaul are some of the essentials driving the success of 5G.”?
