What is 5G?

5G is the 5th generation mobile network. It is the newest mobile network technology that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, buildings and so on.

  • 1G brought us analog voice
  • 2G introduced us to SMS and picture messaging
  • 3G was all about mobile data and internet
  • 4G was about mobile broadband and streaming.

What does 5G mean to us?

The use of 5G is not limited to just our mobile phones. 5G provides the flexibility to support many use cases and hence we will not be surprise to see more and more industries open up and connect to one another.

Where to from now?

While we can see that 5G brings a lot of benefits to the society, there are also some cybersecurity concerns that we need to look that. Having said that, I believe that this is an interesting space to watch and we should definitely keep an eye to see how we can use it in a smart way.
