The 5G Opportunity

The Covid-19 pandemic has underlined the relevance of wireless, always-on, internet-enabled technology for social and economic activities. If 4G was a huge leap over 3G, we are set for an even bigger and potentially more transformational leap with 5G.

5G has already been introduced in some countries and is eagerly awaited in India. 5G will offer much lower latency, higher capacity, and increased bandwidth as compared to previous generations of wireless technologies. It will provide businesses with greater flexibility, reduce costs, and enable applications that aren’t possible today. 5G will be the foundation of a smart, connected world in which Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, and Extended Reality can be leveraged to their full potential.

Qualcomm, the world’s leading innovator and pioneer of wireless technologies, is the driving force behind the development, launch, and expansion of 5G. Qualcomm technologies power the entire wireless ecosystem and are to be found in almost every 5G platform or device. Qualcomm continues to develop new wireless technologies that will benefit the people, businesses, industries, and nations of the world.

Benefits of 5G

  • Unmatched Data Speeds

  • Greater number of connected devices

  • All-day battery life

  • Lower latency

  • Greater speed in transmissions
