5G continues to generate buzz and grab the attention of many. It will be the platform enabling growth in many industries, ranging from the IT sector to the automotive, entertainment, agriculture and manufacturing industries. Different sectors have different use cases and network requirements. Some require superfast downloads while others require ultra-reliable communication. 5G networks will have to cater to an extremely wide variation in requirements.
While the official 5G specifications are set to be published in mid-2018, there are already announcements by major network operators about its launch starting as early as next year.
