The next-generation of wireless technologies – known as 5G – is expected to revolutionize business and consumer connectivity, offering network speeds that are up to 100 times faster than 4G LTE, reducing latency to nearly zero, and allowing networks to handle 100 times the number of connected devices, enabling the "Internet of Things." Leading policymakers – federal regulators and legislators – are making it a top priority to ensure that the wireless industry has the tools it needs to maintain U.S. leadership in commercial 5G deployments. This blog provides monthly updates on FCC actions and Congressional efforts to win the race to 5G.
- I'm sometimes accused of being overly critical of the claims made
- by vendors of various “new” and “improved” technologies. However,
- this was from a law firm, and I'm surprised that those who work
- in such a place would pass along such claims.
- “reducing latency to nearly zero” - and how is that miracle
- accomplished? Is there a new law which modifies the old
- laws of physics?
