PARTNER FEATURE: Intelligent connectivity enables transformational new capabilities in transport, entertainment, industry, and much more. For technical systems to digitally match human actions with connected environments, however, they must meet the speed of our natural reaction times. The networks used must be ultra-reliable, as many critical tasks will be executed remotely. And they will also rely on cost-effective edge infrastructure to enable scaling. According to GSMA, 5G could account for as many as 1.2 billion connections by 2025.
