5G is unified with a more capable air interface, it has been designed with an extended capacity to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users. Higher performance and improved efficiency empower new user experiences and connect new industries. 5G will impact every industry with faster AV communication, making safer transportation, remote healthcare, precision agriculture, digitized logistics, 3D, VR, AR entertainment, - and more - a reality.
