The introduction of 5G technology is expected to have a profound impact on the way people live their lives. 5G enables anticipated technology trends including the Internet of Things (IoT), smart factories and augmented reality. Increased capacity, faster speed and low latency will enhance operational efficiency through, for example, opening up augmented/virtual reality solutions, providing mission-critical control and automation at scale.
Yet, new technology can come with pitfalls and may not always be the right solution despite seeming the most innovative. There are some challenges to consider.
