5G will be an evolution, not a revolution
The telecom industry in the Americas continues to prepare for 5G. The ever-increasing data consumption and output from content-hungry consumers and businesses seeking to take advantage of Internet of Things (IoT), among other emerging technologies, drives R&D and deployment of 5G. The telecom industry seeks to prove 5G will increase value to businesses and consumers and drive revenue opportunities that elude them in the increasingly commoditized 4G era. Telecom vendors are betting 5G will lead to massive infrastructure build-outs.
