5G is the fifth generation of mobile internet connectivity and the feature set is promising: faster data download and upload speeds, wider coverage, more stable connections and lower latency for mission critical operations (think autonomous vehicles, robotics, etc.). Of course, faster speeds are always desirable, but lower latency may be of higher importance for mission critical applications. The processing time required for both sender and receiver using traditional wireless technologies cannot meet the latency requirements of mission critical use cases. It’s all about making better use of the radio spectrum and enabling far more devices to access the mobile internet at the same time.
