  • This year 5G is everywhere.

  • 5G!

  • Most of the major smartphone makers have released 5G compatible phones for 2019.

  • As the infrastructure continues to expand and the network gradually rolls out.

  • The growth in the technology can be seen in the amount of 5G SEPs, or Standard Essential Patents that were declared last year.

  • Companies need to own these if they want to implement 5G technology, and in 2018 the number more than quadrupled from the year before.

  • But 5G is not just about faster connectivity to your smartphone.

  • Things we do every day will become streamlined because of the new technology.

  • For consumers, grocery shopping may have just got a whole lot quicker.

  • Behind us is retail re-imagined.

  • You may want to have a retail pop-up store almost anywhere.

  • At a concert, at a sporting event, at a convention center and be able to do that wirelessly without requiring a lot of infrastructure build-out or laying of cable or fiber, that's what 5G will allow you to do.

  • This is my 5G-connected smartphone and my grocery store has given me a unique QR code.

  • So I just scan it here, and start shopping.

  • Once into the shop, I'm left to my own devices.

  • I can just take whatever I want off the shelves and now all I do is walk out of the store.

  • And it all works because of these 5G-connected cameras.

  • They see what I pick up off the shelves and bill me directly to my 5G connected smartphone, so that I don't have to check out.

  • For businesses, the network's increased capacity has the ability to help operations at all stages of the supply chain.

  • Manufacturing, for instance, would benefit from faster connectivity to manage inventory and eliminate bottlenecks.

  • This demo from SK Telecom is a 5G-connected factory, which really illustrates how 5G will be able to help industry.

  • The industries are getting more smarter than before.

  • 5G can transmit more information and data from sensors to servers.

  • So how does this 5G-connected factory work?

  • Well, this robotic camera is taking photos of each component on the production line and any ones that are defective are then discarded.

  • 5G is also being adopted by the medical industry.

  • High internet speeds could help improve the standard of care for patients.

  • For example, let's say ambulance staff have a patient that needs complex treatment that requires the help of an expert but they don't have time to return to the hospital.

  • 5G could allow medical specialists to support ambulance staff via a live video link, even while they're out on the road.

  • When there is an event or an accident that requires a specialist, the professional has a visual view of the patient in high definition.

  • He's also monitoring in real time the data from the different electronic equipment of the patient so that they can take decisions in real time.

  • Smartphones may be our first introduction to 5G, but it's most significant impact may be felt in how it connects us to everything else.
