HARNESSING 5G

5G is in its early phase, with the launch of one of the first commercial networks delivering next-generation phone service to millions of people. But it is only the tip of the iceberg of things to come. Adding connectivity to anything fundamentally changes its nature and offers a new world of possibilities. What breakthrough market applications might be down the road by harnessing 5G applications? Like a superhighway under construction, you don’t know what kind of businesses will pop up once you build it or how it will transform our lives.

Here’s how we see the 5G future unfold from the vantage point of today.
