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 buildings, 5G technology reduces costs, improves efficiency and provides real-time data in amazing new ways.

Benefits

5G will allow the IoT (Internet of Things) era to become a reality by breaking constraints and capturing information in new ways. For instance, sensors will be able to be implemented throughout farms allowing for crops to communicate moisture and fertilization needs. While utility companies will be able to monitor and report on energy useage. Thus, improving the reliability and sustainability of energy production and distribution.
