Re: 5G: What Is It & Why Does It Matter? I'd argue latency is the most important to make the network reliable enough for self-driving cars, remote surgery and other highly critical use cases, but being able to acheive all three features at once will be important -- and not easy to accomplish.

Re: 5G What Is It & Why Does It Matter kq4ym, I am tracking with your thinking. 

I believe the capacity (aided by SDN/NFV) and connectivity are the dimensions that will add real value.

Re: 5G: What Is It & Why Does It Matter? With a forecast latency of 1 millisecond, 50 times faster and "5G to eke out between 100 and 1,000 times more capacity than 4G" one might speculate which is the more important. With the number of IoT applications one might guess that the capacity factor might just be the winning aspect of 5G should 1000x be acheived in five years.

Re: 5G hype You are unfortunately misinformed. The FCC has not mandated any spectrum for 5G. Nor does the FCC impose any restrictions on wireless operators, and which technologies that can deploy in their respective licenses frequency bands, and it has not done so since the early 1990's.

Re: Tactile Internet At the Ercisson booth at MWC you could drive a digger and get the thrill of creating a hole a mile away.  I think it's true that the low latency aspect is what will make 5G different. The rest is broadly more of the same.

Re: Tactile Internet So we seem to be talking here about remote-operated robots, like military drones (drones in Afghanistan and Iraq, operated in Las Vegas), but for a variety of purposes and using the IP network for control.

Re: 5G hype There will be no 5G below 6 Ghz in the US and EU. The sprectrum just isn't available below 6 Ghz to do 5G there, except for China which is pushing for Chinese 5G in 3.5 Ghz band as an LTE substitute.

 The FCC has mandated 28 Ghz or up for US 5G services. While the EU hasn't decided on which spectrum, the EU satcom operators are heavily lobbying for 31 Ghz and above for Pan-European 5G.

Re: Tactile Internet Heavy Reading's Gabriel Brown touches on that in an upcoming Q&A, so I'll give you a sneak preview. He says, "The other thing -- perhaps the most exciting thing -- is the tactile Internet. There are some really good examples there, of doing remote control for surgery or controlling a digger, or robot. This is where the latency that is almost imperceptible to the human eye is important. And that's where the one millisecond comes in. The potential here is incredible, and these are types of things you couldn't do with 4G."

Re: Omniscient Editor MitchWagner, sounds like a great calling and a unique niche!

Tactile Internet "Tactile Internet" was mentioned in this article as one of the 5G applications. What is that? Is it the technology sometimes called "haptic feedback," where if -- for example -- you're remote-operating a robot and it bumps up against a wall, the chair you're sitting in vibrates a bit so you feel the bump?
