The next generation of telecommunications: 5G

But 5G also brings a series of benefits that will remove technologies that, until today, are blocked by the lack of a stable, cheap and wide coverage network. The benefit of its use will be felt in the most diverse fields of knowledge, such as: telemedicine, health, education, agriculture, transport, commerce, among others.

5G in the health sector

The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the need to bring more and more activities into the virtual domain. Studies show that many of the patients intend to use telemedicine even after the health crisis is over. Virtual reality and space computing are also finding better support for 5G operation. By using both for the training of healthcare professionals, the success of delicate surgeries can be guaranteed, as complex procedures can be tested without endangering the lives of patients. Telemonitoring, widely used in fields such as cardiology, has a future in the implementation of dispositifs capable of controlling specific parameters of patient health. In addition to facilitating data transmission, artificial intelligence, which greatly benefits from 5G, is able to analyze large amounts of medical information, identifying patterns faster and easier.

5G and IoT

The Internet of Things, or IoT, of the English Internet of Things, will also greatly benefit from 5G. The Internet of Things can provide intelligence and connectivity to almost anything from an industrial machine to an employee badge. The IoT represents a revolution in logistics and the integration between industry and commerce. This will lead to huge productivity gains. We will have sensors, connected to machinery, shelves and even monitoring plantations. At the other end of the spectrum, there will be powerful software, using technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, that will make decisions such as increasing a factory's production or alerting a machine needing maintenance.
