2020 is a tipping point for 5G

The general manager of IBM,s Global Media, and Entertainment industry, said that 2020 will be the year that 5G reaches an inflection point and will roll out at full scale.

At CES 2020 about the benefits of 5G to the Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing, manufacturing. Steve Canepa the general manager of IBM explained “5G, as we’ve all seen, is starting to show up in all kinds of different ways with the telecommunications providers now having the spectrum that they’re starting to deploy. We’re seeing different providers have their evolution to 5G offerings in the marketplace. We’re going to see it show up in fixed locations, manufacturing floors, stadiums, facilities, all of that is going to start rolling out at scale in 2020, so it’s an exciting time. And for us, 5G is really an inflection point, I think because it brings three core advantages to businesses that are trying to create new value. “
