Mobile Industry Jumping The Gun On 5G

5G was perhaps the biggest buzzword there has even been at a Mobile World Congress. The problem is though, it does not mean a whole lot right now.

“I get asked the question about 5G a lot, and my answer is, I don’t know what 5G is, but we can dream,” said GSMA director general Anne Bouverot, during an on-stage discussion with U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Tom Wheeler this week.

Operators and vendors from around the world were at the event in force, showing off the various technologies that they believe are viable candidates for the 5G standard, and demonstrating some of the services it might enable.

Broadly speaking, some 5G requirements have emerged in the last 12 months. A 5G network must deliver a 1,000-fold increase in throughput, while virtualised network assets must dynamically allocate resources to create the end-user perception of infinite capacity. Original post at Totaltelecom
