5G offers world's biggest mobile market a gateway to the industrial internet

Networks based on this next-generation mobile technology are expected to start commercial service from 2020. These would support a broader adoption of consumer and industrial applications that take advantage of artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) technologies. The countries first to launch 5G will likely see increased economic benefits from connecting billions of devices and building new services on the advanced mobile infrastructure.
