With the acceleration of video streaming services, advent of employers adapting to a remote workforce, and proliferation of video conference meetings as the new normal for the foreseeable future, an urban structural transformation will emerge, spreading population centers and work to smaller cities, peripheral suburbs and rural areas. Trillions of dollars are now being invested in connecting this new society through digital infrastructure. This, in turn, is driving needed change in telecom infrastructure, further accelerating the 5G expansion for 2022.

Chief among these is the ability to leverage the security, increased speed, lower latency and scalability of 5G to build both public as well as private networks tailored to novel business cases that were not previously viable. Digital transformation, internet of things (IoT) and smart factories all require 5G capabilities for industrial operations and mission-critical wireless connectivity. Translated into the consumer field, this includes innovations such as automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), augmented reality (AR), collaborative mobile robots, self-driving vehicles and much more.
