Approximately every 10 years a new generation of mobile technology appears and 5G is now emerging.   What is 5G?  New frequency bands, unimaginably fast speeds, significantly reduced latency, vast system capacity and inanimate objects connected to 5G networks will lead to smart cities, driverless cars, telemedicine and the “internet of things.”  What does 5G mean for you and your business?
