THE 5G REVOLUTION

5G promises to be a real revolution in the global technological economy, a strategic infrastructure which, by integrating new and previous technologies opens the way to a huge variety of innovative services in numerous sectors of the data economy: transport, manufacturing, industry, and media.

The challenges of new technology:

The future, therefore, is 5G. In the present, however, not all companies and consumers appreciate the usefulness of this technology, believing that 4G is sufficient to meet their needs. This perception, according to GSMA, is due to the low diffusion of the technology in some countries and will improve with its implementation. The estimates that the report makes regarding the technologies that will be used in Europe in 2025 predict a strong presence of 4G (49%) with the rapid growth of 5G (34%). As a result, fewer and fewer people will use 3G (7% against the current 28%), and 2G will almost completely disappear (from 14% to 1%).

5G Smartphones: Smartphones will be increasingly popular, which will be used by 83% of the European population, up from the current figure of 73%. Smartphones, which will be increasingly used to connect to the Internet. It is estimated that by 2025, four out of five connections will be made through these devices.

The spread of fifth-generation technologies brings with it numerous challenges for mobile operators, who will have to try to contain costs in a slow-growing market. Apple is already heading in this direction, gradually shifting its services.

Flexible display and a battery that lasts up to five days- these are the smartphones of the future.

The layout of smartphones has also changed several times over the past 20 years and,  manufacturers will develop further innovations to keep end-users interests alive. One of the innovations that could spread in the coming years is that of folding smartphones. But found some complexities, which have led Huawei to postpone the launch on the market of its Mate X product. Currently, there are two models on sale, the Motorola Razr and the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

 The real battle for the smartphones of the future is played on the most advanced technological innovations: the Internet of things and 5G will open the market to even smarter devices. History teaches us that when technology and innovation increase productivity, the market gives rise to new needs and new professional skills with greater added value and better quality, freeing a large part of workers from tiring, repetitive and risky jobs.

5G IS THE FUTURE. AND THERE IS NO 5G WITHOUT FIBER:

The availability of fiber optic networks is vital for 5G technology. Without 5G, there can be no Internet of Things, smartphones and apps, cloud computing, or even self-driving cars. But without fiber, there is no 5G.

Government and telecommunication operators introducing the infrastructures for this. These strategic infrastructures must have the highest quality and must be designed to ensure high performance over time, to be ready for the services of the future such as 5G, but also for smart cities, transport, and smart homes.
