5G will enable new groundbreaking use cases in virtually every industry

The congregation of 5G, edge computing, and artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to enable entirely new use cases in vertical industries and accelerate the adoption of Industry 4.0.

Consumers see value in 5G and would even switch providers for better video quality
Consumers have high expectations for 5G, and many are willing to pay extra—even
switch to a different provider—for a better mobile video experience and/or for future immersive media applications.

AI at the network edge will lay the foundation for ultra-low latency 5G applications
Locating AI close to the edge is crucial for applications where near-real-time feedback and decision-making are a priority for applications. This will enable previously unimagined latency-dependent wireless solutions.
