Description

2019 marks the year for 5th-Generation Wireless Systems (5G) to come to life, with large scale 5G roll-out and more than thirty 5G devices rushing into the market, including 5G smartphones and customer-premises equipment (CPE). Not only will 5G accelerate the growth and expansion of telecommunications; but it will also redefine and accelerate industries such as automotive, entertainment, computing and manufacturing. With high throughput and low latency, 5G is the most promising technique to tackle the high-value areas including 3D robotic control, virtual reality monitoring and remote medical control. 5G is well-placed to solve problems that today's technologies have not addressed yet. However, the enormous investment required to develop 5G and the uncertainty of the applications for 5G also put the future of 5G into a test. This report points out the unique niches for 5G and provides a holistic view of 5G technologies and vertical applications, which are essential to understanding the 5G market opportunity.
