Understanding and Measuring 5G

Latest insights on 5G


The promise of 5G to revolutionize the mobile industry started years before the first commercial networks even launched. Download speeds measured in Gbps. Latencies reduced to single digit milliseconds. Bandwidths capable of serving an ever-growing mobile-first population.
