The advent of the 5G age is now truly upon us. Although the locations where signal is available may still be limited, the main four carriers in the US now offer 5G connectivity, and it is increasingly becoming a reality in countries around the world. The benefits of this expanded 5G network will be considerable, with faster speeds and more reliable connections. Average download speeds of around 1Gbps are expected to soon be the norm, with up to 15 – 20 Gbps possible. Increased speed in transmissions and lower latency will dramatically increase capacity for remote execution – less internal memory will be required in-device as more work is done in the cloud. This will of course be a boon to the Internet of Things, with the number of network connected devices expected to increase from tens of thousands to millions per square mile.
