BuddeComm Intelligence Report - LTE-A and 5G - a Glimpse into the Future

The 5G technology is now well and truly under development. While there are no firm standards in place, the industry is working hard at making that happen. In the meantime, the early movers are testing their own versions of the 5G technology and this is giving us information about what we can expect what the technology will be able to deliver.

Key developments will include M2M and IoT infrastructure, facilitating the development of smart homes, buildings and cities. Many of these applications will be opened up partly through the use of 4G LTE A(dvanced) a halfway house on the way to full 5G.

Commercial 5G is not expected to become available in any significant way until around 2020, with full deployment expected towards the end of that decade.

This BuddeComm Intelligence report provides unique and valuable information on 5G, its future role and potential uses, technical features, industry developments and challenges.
