5G will transform how millions of individuals, organizations and devices connect to each other. This technology will drive the creation of new markets, the development of products and services, and the optimization of production processes. Furthermore, latest-generation mobile communications are an essential link in the urban-planning systems that will consolidate the ideal of Smart Cities.
Fifth-generation broadband mobile technology will be the new basis for developments in the Internet of Things, driverless vehicles, connected homes and smart cities. 5G technology is full of potential, given the speed at which it will allow users to operate. On mobile devices, it promises to be up to 100 times faster than current systems, with standard minimum download speeds of 20 Gbps; uploads of 10 Gbps and latency, 4 ms.
Nevertheless, as is true of any revolution, 5G comes with its own challenges in terms of personal and corporate security, which must be taken into account and managed by companies, users and regulators.
At this Mobile Talks session, representatives from the big stakeholders in this technology will meet for a panel discussion to present the state of 5G in Spain and Europe, debate the challenges and opportunities this technology poses, and build a clear vision of the future that awaits our cities, productive sector and society in general.
