Our 5G vision

The 5GIC vision sets an ambition to enable a world where everything is provided wirelessly to the end device by a fixed and mobile (converged) infrastructure that functions across the whole geography.

The 5G vision includes:

  • Indoors and outdoors
  • Dense urban centres with capacity challenges
  • Sparse rural locations where coverage is the main challenge
  • Places with existing infrastructure, and areas where there is none

A leading idea is that the 5G infrastructure should be far more demand/user/device centric with the agility to marshal network/spectrum resources to deliver "always sufficient" data rate and low latency to give the users the perception of infinite capacity. This offers a route to much higher-performing networks and a far more predictable quality of experience that is essential for an infrastructure that is to support an expanding digital economy and connected society.
