IEEE develops and advances standards for up and coming technologies and innovations. Some of the latest standards being developed will power 5G, which will play a very important role in the Internet of Things and connecting people all over the world.
Some of the benefits of 5G that are powered by IEEE Standards include:
- less than a 1 millisecond latency
- speeds that are 1,000 times faster than 4G
- a wireless spectrum above 5GHz powered by IEEE P802.11ayTM
- IEEE Frugal 5G connecting the unconnected
These advances will result in 10,000 times more data traffic and 50 billion connected objects through IoT IEEE P2413TM.
The global potential of 5G is exciting and IEEE Standards is helping empower the future of innovation.
