How will the 5th generation of mobile networks change the telecommunications landscape?
4G mobile connects smartphones. 5G mobile will connect the Internet of Things (IoT). The primary purpose of mobile networks will shift from communication between human beings to communication between things: machines talking to machines; buildings, vehicles, wearables, and other smart devices with continuous connectivity.
This technology trend will change data centers, too. They must transform from 4G support for human services, such as social networks, to 5G, providing the massive capacity for IoT services.
Dr. Hiroshi Fujiwara is one of Japan’s leading Internet visionaries. He is the founder of Tokyo-based firms BroadBand Tower and Internet Research Institute and also the president of IAjapan (Internet Association of Japan). Dr. Fujiwara will explain the essence of this change to the 5G era and the business opportunities it presents, including implications for the transportation industry.
