By 2022, there is forecasted to be more than 500 million fifth-generation (5G) mobile networking device subscriptions worldwide, equal to 15 percent of the population. 5G promises data rates of 10 to 100 times faster when compared to 4G and LTE speeds of today.
This means not only will the new cellular technology help improve the performance of use cases today, but it will also power brand-new and emerging applications, too.
