The Coming Revolution: 5G and its Impact on IT

For the next decade, a fifth generation (5G) of mobile communications is promising to target larger volumes of data transport, dramatic expansion of wireless device scale and integration of mobile communications into devices serving civilization, driven by diverse use cases such as virtual reality, smart cities, smart grid, autonomous driving, massive sensor deployments and machine communication, among others. 5G is expected to bring communications and computing even closer together, building on the adoption of 4G in the mobile sector.

As it stands at present, views on the extent of the impact of 5G mostly fall into two camps: The first of these is that 5G is an important, next-stage evolution of 4G and LTE, introducing new speeds, efficiency and bandwidth; the second, and far more revolutionary view, is that it represents the final and critical convergence of computing and IT, the final move to packet-based networks, and the beginning of seamless and ubiquitous information and control. In our view, given the rapid emergence of IoT applications, both of these views justify the interest and excitement around 5G.

In this forward looking webinar, we'll discuss the coming generation of wireless technology known as 5G, and the findings of our recently published report, "The Coming Revolution: 5G and its Impact on IT". Fresh from Mobile World Congress 2016, the presenters will place 5G in the context of the evolution of both wireless technology and the wider IT market; discuss some of the key drivers and barriers to adoption; and consider how 5G might act as a catalyst to innovation.
