5G – Fast Lane to the Future / Workshops with Ericsson

Autonomous vehicles will communicate with each other about traffic accidents and smartphones will be able to display how much milk is left in the refrigerator at home and control the heater to adjust the living room temperature.

Applications for 5G technology will need high data rates and high bandwidth. 5G is expected to have network speeds of 10Gbps.  How fast is 10Gbps? To download the contents of a DVD (4.7 GB), it takes about 13 minutes via a DSL connection with a bandwidth of 50 Mbps. A 5G enabled smartphone or laptop using a 5G connection could download the same DVD in just four seconds.

Considering these ongoing challenges within digital transformation there is a need to increase the transformation into 5G world and be more customer centric.

IMS Connector Systems arranged workshops with Ericsson teams in Asia to discuss digital engagement and customized solutions for antenna connectors, high speed data connectors and other new technical requirements. With IMS’ innovative roadmap and new technical product features in mind, the workshop participants shared technical perspectives and learned from each other.
