5G forum

The launch of the 4G network was the beginning of higher intelligence. A huge amount of top-level smartphones rolled out and the era of data communications emerged and became adopted in the tech environment. The various generation of mobile internet connectivity made high intensive speed, connectivity and performance boost which enlisted a seamless and effortless process to devices.

Now the newly announced generation network is here. The 5G network with speeds projected to be five times faster than 4G LTE, applications that are unimaginable with today’s bandwidth limitations will be possible on the 5G network. The 5G network will enable emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles and the Internet of Things (IoT) to finally become a promised reality for both businesses and consumers.

The 5G network is the next generation of internet connectivity to provide more reliable internet connection, speed, huge data transfer, automation, more valued augmented reality and trusting Artificial Intelligence (AI). In collaboration with its huge speed boost, evolution and adoption of autonomous/self-driving machines and telemedicine (automated surgical intelligence) will be made more alive.

In various environments around the world like Asia, Europe and North America, companies and individuals are already looking into diving in this new generation. And who is the new network generation designed for? Is Africa also among those to tap into its resources and drive the tech and network industry with the 5G technology? Well, Yes of course.

Check this out,

  • Commercial service providers here in Africa are already adopting the 5G network in their service to deliver more. The 4G network with smartphones phased in data communication, now the 5G is here and will not only evolve and deliver faster enhanced mobile broadband to users but will also enable super-bolt connectivity between machines and boost roll out of new and updated technology.
  • With the 5G trial made possible by MTN in Nigeria, industries with projects and products looking to tap into ultra-connective automation and powered with the 5G network will see this trial as a stepping stone to launch world-class technology in agriculture and telemedicine.
  • More power and automation, reliable management. With services like road traffic, school management, electric and water management, public safety and waste control; the 5G network with its attributes will play an important role in providing a total wireless control and management in Africa.

Hence, the 5G Africa conference has become so crucial in Africa at this time because publication of the first standard defining a true 5G network has been approved in June 2018. Beyond that, 2019 will see the release of the first 5G-compatible smartphones, along with 5G mobile network deployments. By early 2020, operator adoption of the new standard is predicted to be on a steep upward curve. With an estimated internet penetration of about 39%, Africa is well behind the rest of the world currently. If we don’t start preparing for 5G now, there is a fear the gap will grow even bigger. Hence, the need for this 5G Africa Forum.
