5G Emerging Technology and Affected Industries: Quick Survey


  • Saman Sarraf The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Senior Member IEEE


The fifth generation of cellular mobile communication called 5G will be publicly available in the near future to connect more than 8.4 billion devices. 5G has been designed to improve the network capacity and speed significantly. Various providers and Android cell phone producers have contributed to this huge project and have successfully tested their networks and devices. Additionally, 5G is a revolutionizing technology in which smart devices, including Android phones, are capable of utilizing artificial intelligence software applications. In addition, other emerging technologies, including autonomous driving that rely highly on network communications, will be positively affected. The business aspect of 5G is also promising, as were the business aspects of the previous generations. 5G will be financially beneficial, as step by step, users will update their devices, or they will have to purchase a device that is compatible to 5G, which will produce a high financial turnover for the telecom companies. This review briefly addresses the technical background and 5G key technologies. In the second section, the cutting-edge development and state-of-the-art 5G related technologies will be discussed.
