This means higher definition, HD, videos, either, from TV, or using video conferencing.
5G networks deployment is designed, to facilitate a wealth of new applications for wireless technologies.
5G will enable the operation of Driverless Cars and Drones in safety
The deployment of the 5G networks, will enable Driverless cars and drones, to safely and near-instantaneously, send and receive information about their surroundings that will allow them, to operate safely.
5G will enable Immersive Virtual and Augmented Realities
5G networks deployment, will enable Immersive Virtual and Augmented Realities, become more feasible experiences.
This is because, large quantities of data associated with HD graphics and processing external data, can be transferred between devices, accurately and quickly.
5G can assist in the provision of better healthcare services
With 5G networks deployment, can enable healthcare personnel to predict which patients are more likely, to have post-operative complications, through Artificial Intelligence, allowing our healthcare systems to provide early interventions, at saving lives, when necessary.
