Re: the fifth G
The advent of 5G should be welcome--although with it, there will indeed be havoc.  As you were implying, the question is how the regulators will respond to it and not be "amenable" to whatever the leading lights out there today will want.  Google's interesting acquistion that was discussed here in the Community is just one example.  The future is here and now--whether we like it or not :-)

There's a definite tension
There's a definite tension in some the v. early commentary on design and motivation for 5G.

LTE, as it stands, really isn't designed for M2M. John Chambers has said that he thinks 5G will be designed around the "Internet of Everything." The NTT DoCoMo CTO has said that he hopes 5G will accomodate IoT.

 But it seems to me that the millimeter wave radio designs that are being run up the flagpole as the underpinning of what might become 5G are REALLY not friendly to wide-area M2M, which needs low-power and excellent battery life, not massive antenna arrays and super-fast connections.

Maybe there's a way to design around that over the comig years?

Re: the fifth G
Indeed -- in the U.S., at least, a huge battle over spectrum allocation (or even liberalization) is now shaping up. Google, Microsoft, Facebook, et al. will likely play leading roles in this.

Re: the fifth G
It might be interesting to speculate where some of the actors in 5G might be in five to six years. Forecasting out that far can be a bit like writing a sci-fi thriller. Google, for instance might be the stand out leader or the reverse, deciding to drop out of the 5G arena for some other technology project. But it's always fun to guess what the future may bring even if our guesses are way off target.

Lord, make me chaste
Some vendors are using 5G as a smokescreen for holding back on SDN and NFV development. As in the trigger for SDN and NFV won't really come until 5G...As in "Lord, make me chaste - but not yet."

I think I'll stick with the wheat.

It's our job -- at Light Reading and Heavy Reading -- to do that sorting.

Re: the fifth G
@mendyk, that may be hard to do when most people don't know the "wheat from the shaft", in other words if they don't know that they don't know, they cannot know.
