What are the applications of 5G?

5G aims to meet a growing demand for data traffic via smartphones and communicating objects, which are growing in number and connected to the network. It can be used in a wide range of fields, such as in medicine, security devices, entertainment, the media, logistics, cars, industry, surveillance, e-gaming and e-sporting, etc.

5G should also promote cloud computing, integration, the interoperability of communicating objects and smartgrids and other smart networks, in an automated environment, helping to promote the concept of “smart city”.

It may also contribute to the development of 3D image synthesis or holography, data mining, the management of big data and the Internet of Everything (an expression referring to a world in which computers and peripherals can communicate with each other).
