Every day, we are becoming more and more familiar with 5G. The technology, which only a year ago was just beginning to be deployed as a promising novelty – an opportunity to open a Pandora’s box of new innovations, applications and businesses –, is now on everybody’s lips at “coffee talks” to plan what to do in our new, fully connected world.
5G cellular networks have become far more popular thanks to the new uses they can provide to public services and industrial segments. The current technological context is key for the implementation of 5G architecture, based on SDN / SD-WAN – Software Defined Network, NFV – Network Function Virtualization or MEC – Multi-Access Edge Computing technologies.
I have lost count of how many trillions $ 5G can generate in the next years. It all depends on the time scale as well as the market segment you are in, whether being hardware, or software, or services, or the entire ecosystem taken from its many different and multiple angles.
The current Covid-19 crisis has some of you wondering if it is the result of a biological weapon from a shady military lab. The answer is a simple no! As the scientific community so rightly states, nature is enough and more than enough to make new viruses like this all by itself.
