    Roadmap of 5G networks:

    Recent trends suggest that we are on the way to receive an in depth info on the Roadmap of 5G networks and that's damn interesting! Why? It's because 5G will have to be the main powerhouse behind the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT basically refers to an environment where we will be flooded by smart devices round us-where even our fridge, microwave would behave in a much holistic way by communicating with each other.

    5G would also lead the path to mass commercialization of self-driven cars as the higher bandwidths (1 gigabit speeds) plus better latency (5 millisecond over the previous 10-15 millisecond of the 4G networks). We are expecting keynotes from CEOs of network giants like Docomo, Nokia and China mobile on these.
