The 5G big bang is coming, this will herald many new applications and pose new challenges to existing devices. In this video from David Kirk – President of Murata Electronics America we explore how 5G will affect industry and how manufacturers will need to prepare.
The long-awaited 5G rollout is underway. Consumers in more than 20 countries can now access 5G speeds on their smartphones.
Over the next few years, standardization will pave the way for huge throughput, latency and availability enhancements that promise to unleash the benefits of 5G to many new industries and applications.
For organizations to achieve the promised commercial success, however, the 5G ecosystem will have to mitigate component-level risks around many issues, including:
- Thermal Management
- Battery Life
- Low Latency
High performance components for 5G, from infrastructure, through handsets to miniaturized IoT devices will be needed for development of critical hardware in the fields like:
- Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) delivering much faster, low-latency and massive machine type communications (mMTC) to optimise user experience and herald many applications.
- Massive IoT for applications that are less latency sensitive and have relatively low throughput requirements, but require a huge volume of low-cost, low-energy consumption devices on a network with excellent coverage.
- Ensuring secure communications to first responders, governments and industries. From dedicated networks to commercial mobile networks with specialist embedded mission-critical capabilities.
- Private network with unified connectivity, secure means of communication within a specific area. It will deliver the speed, latency and other benefits promised by 5G to support next-generation applications.
