Fox, Angela Y. Kung, Christen B'anca Glenn, Scott Thompson and Daniel P. Reing The next-generation of wireless technologies - known as 5G - is here. Not only is it expected to offer network speeds that are up to 100 times faster than 4G LTE and reduce latency to nearly zero, it will allow networks to handle 100 times the number of connected devices, revolutionizing business and consumer connectivity and enabling the "Internet of Things." Leading policymakers - federal regulators and legislators - are making it a top priority to ensure that the wireless industry has the tools it needs to maintain U.S. leadership in commercial 5G deployments. https://www.mondaq.com/unitedstates/telecoms-mobile-cable-communications/982388/what39s-new-in-5g--september-2020?email_access=on ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Thu, 10 Sep 2020
