There is a global race underway to deploy 5G networks and services that promise to fuel an exponential increase in digital opportunities and possibilities – an Industrial Revolution for the 21st Century. Until now, the introduction of each new generation of mobile technology came with improved features for connecting people faster and virtually everywhere: from voice telephony (2G), to 1st Gen data capabilities and broadband communication with enhanced speed and capacity (3G and 4G). However, 5G will be different: it is about connecting everything—people with people, people with “things” (physical goods), things with things—and these connections will enable communications at unprecedented speed and transmission capacity, all without perceivable delay. These features are the ingredients for the “Internet of Things” (IoT), Industry 4.0 (which will impact all elements of the value chain, from industrial planning, municipal planning, design, robotic production and logistic chains connecting different production sites), autonomous driving, remote health applications, and many other innovations that will improve the lives of Canadians.
