UC Irvine CALIT2 Building Auditorium



While 5G isn’t expected to debut until 2020, an increasing

number of companies are investing now to prepare for the

new mobile wireless standard. 5G, which stands for fifth generation, will

be significantly faster with lower latency, and will integrate networking, computing and

storage resources into one programmable and unified infrastructure. This 5G innovation

platform will enable emergent technologies, such as the Internet of Things, to become

integral parts of our economy and lifestyle. With 5G, factories of the future will have

more agile mobile-communication support, enabling greater efficiency and better

energy productivity. The next-generation network will give advanced manufacturers

the agility to move quickly to meet customer needs and stay ahead of the competition.
