2019 is the first year for commercial 5G networks. By August, 5G services have already been officially launched in US, South Korea, Switzerland and several other countries. 5G networks, featuring high bandwidth, ultra-reliable low latency and massive concurrent connectivity, have immediately attracted a large number of early adopters. For example, 5G users in South Korea have exceeded one million within only two months, with a penetration rate faster than that of 4G. In addition, the development of 5G-empowered services, including industrial control, drone, Internet of vehicles, and AR/VR, brings revolution in business models for various vertical industries and inspires our imagination.
