5G Development

5G has the characteristics of high speed, low latency, and large connections. Lower speeds convey information and higher bandwidths convey emotions. But 5G may bring us greater changes in emotions, communication, and production work. Low latency can play a great role in the remote control. The value of big connections lies in the interconnection of all things and the intelligent connection of all things.

In fact, there are 60 to 70 5G commercial networks in the world. There should be 170 networks by 2020. 5G commercial flywheels are turning faster and faster. The development of five-G users is relatively similar. The speed is also faster than in the past. It is expected that 5G will reach 500 million users in just three years.
