5G is expected to be as reliable as a wireline network. To deliver on its promise of extreme mobile broadband and massive and ultra-reliable machine communications requires a level of reliability we have not seen in wireless communications. When self-driving cars or health care medical devices are transmitting real-time data on the network with millions of sensors working at the same time to enable decision making, reliability and transmission peed becomes a life-or-death matter. Such applications clearly require the 1 millisecond delay time provided in the 5G specification.
5G technology will expand business opportunities and business models through monitoring, tracking and automation capabilities on a large scale. From connected farms and agriculture to smart cities and building and mainly In agriculture society like Ours, the various sensors will be able to be implemented throughout farms allowing for crops to communicate moisture and fertilization needs.
