5G: More than just speed
The coming of 5G is a game-changer, but not in the way people expect. Smartphone users worldwide have long-awaited the arrival of fewer dead spots and download speeds up to 20 times faster.
Potentially far more significant is the capacity for 5G to unlock the full power of the 30 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices expected to be connected by 2030.
Analysts estimate that by 2035, the 5G value chain will drive upwards of USD 3.5 trillion of new economic output, supporting 22 million jobs.
To make this projection a reality and justify the necessary investment, the electronics industry must tap into the full potential of 5G beyond the handset business.
