5G is the global wireless standard for the fifth generation of mobile networks. It's designed to take connectivity to the next level using technologies such as virtualisation and cloud, and thus represents an important step in the evolution of the telecom industry. Each new generation (like 2G and 3G) offered higher speeds and enabled new technologies that transformed entire industries.
