Similar to wireless generations before it, 5G will provide significant advantages over the current 4G LTE networks. 5G promises a 100x speed increase by delivering up to 10 Gbps speeds, making your wireless connection almost feel like fiber. The 5G latency will also be an improvement, delivering latency as low as 1 ms, making applications like untethered AR/VR a reality. And an increase in 5G connection density will allow more sensors and IoT devices to be connected in a small area.

The impact of each new generation of wireless technology has been significant in terms of improvements in speed and bandwidth. This has caused widespread disruption with devices, applications and usage. The introduction of 5G will continue this trend, and edge computing will play a significant role in the connectivity chain for 5G.
