Perhaps the biggest buzzard in the tech industry these days, besides AI, is 5G. 5G, or fifth generation cellular networks will eventually deliver 1-10 gig speeds of wireless data to smartphones, cars, smart cities, and smart devices.
5G is considered a transformational technology because it has the potential to be used in ways 1G to 4G could not be used in the past. Besides higher speeds, 5G modems could find their way into automobiles, street lights, roads, buildings, and throughout the home. It will be used in new types of business and consumer applications where a wireless connection link will be important to any device or application where connectivity is critical for it to work.
