Our 5G vision
The 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.

What is 5G? Is it just about the speed? The University of Surrey produced a film to highlight the work being undertaken here into 5G technology.
