Prepare for Constant Connectivity with 5G

The 5th generation mobile network, 5G, is a new kind of platform that combines leading-edge technology inventions in 5G new radio (NR) air interface design, as well as in the 5G NextGen core network. Faster, low-latency, high-bandwidth 5G networks can connect anything, anywhere, with improved performance, efficiency, and cost.

As 5G continues to evolve, Arm-powered solutions are helping more companies take advantage of its potential—from the compute infrastructure through the network and to the device. The lightning-fast data speeds, super-low latencies, and more powerful and intelligent network services of 5G, unlock a new era with unbound potential for connected consumer devices and IoT. They’re also transforming data processing, transport, and storage networks.

One of the major requirements of 5G is Industrial IoT (IIoT) where mobile virtual network operators service private, vertical networks for factories, and so on. Key technologies, such as AR/VR, autonomous vehicles, smart cities, artificial intelligence and machine learning at the edge, can use 5G to gather fast streams of data and manage interactions with billions of devices remotely and cost effectively.

Arm-based compute solutions are helping to make all this possible.

A Network Built for Capacity and Speed

8K resolution streaming and 360 degree video increase mixed reality applications, improving games, viewing experiences, and more.

Near-Zero Latency and Reliability

Super-low latency pushes the boundaries on mission-critical use cases, such as medical surgery via robots, emergency services, and autonomous driving.

Massive Connectivity

Fully deployed 5G lets everything connect, from always-on laptops to new innovations in smart cities, smart homes, and smart agriculture.
