Does 5G now replace the previous generation of mobile communications?
The Federal Network Agency's auction for 5G frequencies in the 2 GHz and 3.6 GHz ranges ended on June 12th, 2019. At the end of November 2019, the Federal Network Agency provided clarity on the application procedure for local wireless 5G applications. Are these the best prerequisites for catapulting the digitalization of industry and logistics to the next level with the data turbo?
In theory, yes, because 5G technology offers a multiplication of data rates and short latency times compared to 4G/LTE. Real-time sensitive processes such as autonomous driving or smart industrial automation should be able to break new grounds with 5G. How far has standardization progressed? What advantages are becoming feasible for industry and logistics? What is the added value of a private 5G license for companies?
