Towards a Connected Intelligent Future
The first commercial deployments of 5G have already taken place and the plans for the first steps for the evolution of the 5G standards are in place. The expectations are very high on 5G, and this time not only for the traditional voice and mobile broadband services, but also that 5G will play a major part in the ongoing digitalization and spur novel businesses in various verticals. In the coming years we will see a combinatorial effect of 5G connectivity, the edge cloud and AI that will drive change in an unprecedented way. During the era of the next generation networks, the data carried over wireless technologies will predominantly be between machines. The future generations must accommodate the needs and requirements from machine communication and provide trustworthy, flexible and scalable solutions.
