The 5G Internet
July 21, 2020
5G-Digital services represent
the essential evolution of the modern
Internet-driven economy. In simplest terms, 5G
high-speed causeways enable ubiquitous access
and connectivity to internet-connected services,
sensors, drones, robots, and data as we move.
Within the research community, 5G technology
also represents transformative internet
technology at the intersection of
high-performance computing, high-speed
networking, and high bandwidth wireless
communications. This “5G-mobile-internet” allows
the computing devices that we carry around to
analyze vast quantities of information for
real-time services in highly mobile scenarios.
This presentation describes the 5G Internet,
associated technology, and the 5G applications
that will transform society.
