Fifth Generation (cellular network)


The fifth generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks began worldwide deployment in 2019 as the planned successor to the existing 4G networks that provide connectivity between most ‘cellular’ devices. The rollout of 5G may help to facilitate smart street use-cases through the expected improvements to communication speed, latency, reliability and range that 5G is expected to deliver along with the development of communications standards including developed support for Internet of Things (IoT) and private networking capabilities (see also C-V2X).
