5G Around the Globe

 E 

nthusiasm around 5G is based on its advanced proficiencies, high speed, increased
bandwidth and low latency. These capabilities will inspire the creation of immense
numbers of internet of things (IoT) devices from smartphones to advances in health
care to even more complex solutions such as augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) and mixed
reality (MR) that require significant computing capabilities on the edge of the network.

THE MOBILE CONNECTIONS BY REGION
Operators with launched 5G networks
(excluding soft launches)
While It may not seem like 5G is deploying
quickly, 5G devices have already outpaced
the launch of long-term evolution (LTE)
products during the 4G rollout. However,
the complexity of 5G and the availability or
lack of spectrum, are important factors
hampering the speed of 5G rollouts.
5G will allow cars and driverless vehicles to interact with other cars and the
infrastructure surrounding them using
vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology
to allow each to communicate with the

traffic system. To accomplish this,
extremely low latencies or time delays are
required. The vehicles need to exchange
information almost instantly and 5G
offers sub-one-millisecond latency.
The biggest change 5G may bring is in
virtual and augmented reality. As phones
transform into devices meant to be used
with VR headsets, the very low latency
and high speeds of 5G will deliver an
augmented world with an abundance of
information coming from the internet.

The small cell aspects of 5G may help
with in-building coverage, as home routers also become cell sites.
Nearly 400 operators worldwide are
now investing in 5G networks. As commercial launches and mobile subscriptions rise, this map shows which countries
are leading the way in 5G adoption.

2021

Industry experts will discuss the
5G rollout at CES 2021.
