"5G will pave the way for a new era of consumer-technology interactions. It is going to catapult data usage to a whole new level. Some of the world's biggest economies including India, China and USA are gearing for the 5G launch in the next couple of years. Fiberisation for the backhaul networks all the way down to the small cell next door to a customer's location -- is imperative. Another critical aspect of the 5G network is virtualisation, which enables operators to run network functions as software programs on standard servers. A combination of these two crucial systems will cover the speed, latency and capacity requirements of the network."
