The current LTE communications standard is a fourth generation standard (4G). LTE is continually developing and can fully meet the requirements of consumers for ever greater bandwidth. We assume that the 4G LTE technology will most likely also become a foundation for a future 5G standard. 5G is currently being discussed and developed in the industry. This will allow us to meet the growing requirements of consumers in the future as well.
However, 5G will be able to do much more - the new functions will be interesting first and foremost for industry. That's because 5G will enable new business models which are still inconceivable according to current standards. This includes innovative solutions for the healthcare sector and automotive industry. All in all, 5G will provide 1,000 times higher capacity depending on the application, 10 times better speed and 10 times faster response time (latency) in comparison with conventional technologies.
