Are You Ready For 5G and (4IR) The Fourth Industrial Revolution? ⚡️
It's been predicted that The introduction of 5G will bring the fourth industrial revolution – Industry 4.0, where everything is digitized and connected.
(4IR) is the fourth major industrial era since the initial Industrial Revolution of the 18th century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres, collectively referred to as cyber-physical systems.
According to the World Economic Forum Global Risks Report 2017, “the Fourth Industrial Revolution has the potential to raise income levels and improve the quality of life for all people.
5G networks rely on much smaller, but more densely-deployed, antennae, most attached not to giant cell towers but to existing buildings, light poles, and other physical infrastructure. By packing or “densifying” the network, signals will be carried faster and more reliably, with bandwidth measured not in megabits but rather in gigabits per second. Early tests suggest that 5G networks will be as much as 100 times faster than today’s mobile technology.
Small Business Impact
Faster speed, lower latency, and greater capacity could enable on-the-go, ultra-high-definition video, virtual reality, and other advanced applications.
