In the coming months, communication services providers (CSPs) across the globe will be busy rolling out their 5G networks, promising data rates 100x those of 4G, network latency of under 1 millisecond, support for 1 million devices/sq. km., and 99.999% availability of the network. As a result, 5G will generate data at an unprecedented velocity and immense volume. This “fast data” will fuel a wide range of data-driven services and digital business models.
5G promises higher bandwidth leading to higher density (up to one million devices per sq. km.) and millisecond latency.
