The document entitled “The 5G Economy: How 5G Technology Will Contribute to the Global Economy”, published in 2017, is still highly relevant. This informative document provides a very insightful, transformational description of 5G. At a high level, 5G is defined by three driving KPIs:
- Peak data rates faster than 10 Gbps: for enhanced mobile broadband.
- Device connection density of greater than 1 million per km2: for immense machine-oriented communication.
- Latency below 1 ms: for ultra-reliable machine-oriented communications.
