What is 5G technology?
5G technology revolutionizes how we connect and interact with the digital world, offering faster, more reliable, and versatile communication. It will have an impact on almost every corner of our lives and of society, driving innovations in healthcare, transportation and manufacturing.
It uses cell sites that transmit data through radio waves. Cell sites connect to networks with wireless technology or wired connection. 5G technology works by modifying how data is encoded, significantly increasing the number of usable airwaves for carriers.
“5G will have the single greatest impact in technological innovation in North America in the next 5 years”
