[2]
  • 21. 21 4) 5G Networks • 5G is acknowledged as the future of communication and the cutting edge for the entire mobile industry. • Deployment of #5G networks will emerge between 2020 and 2030, making possible zero-distance connectivity between people and connected machines. • This type of mobile internet connectivity will provide us super-fast download and upload speeds (five times faster than 4G capabilities) as well as more stable connections. [3]
  • 22. 22 • The industry buzz surrounding 5G technology and its impact on the next-generation of connectivity and services has been circulating over the last year or so. • Yet, the technology still isn’t widely available and it holds the potential to revolutionize the way mobile networks function, because of COVID-19, the 5G market may materialize sooner than expected.
  • 23. 23 • As large numbers of people have been forced to isolate, an increase in working and studying from home has been stressing networks and creating higher demand for bandwidth. • People have now realized the need for faster data sharing with increased connectivity speeds, an acceleration in the rollout of 5G technology to ensure the bandwidth and capacity challenges of existing infrastructure is more real than ever. [2]
  • 24. 24 5) Voice User Interface (VUI) • As consumers are becoming increasingly concerned that their mobile devices (which are touched more than 2,600 times per day) can spread #coronavirus. • As the fear of spreading germs grows, so will the use of voice tech in forms of voice user interface (VUI) , which can reduce the number of times one touches any surface, including our mobile devices.
  • 25. 25 • Almost 80% of our communications done using verbal communication, that’s why voice usage will continue to increase and extend to other smart-home components implicated as major germ hubs. • As more TVs and entertainment components, light switches, appliances, plumbing fixtures, and alarm systems incorporate voice control functionality, there will be less need to touch them.
  • 26. 26 6) Internet of Things (IoT) • IoT will enable us to predict and treat health issues in people even before any symptoms appear, with smart medication containers, IP for every vital part of your body for the doctor to hack. to smart forks that tell us if the food is healthy or not. Personalized approaches concerning prescribing medicines and applying treatments will appear (also referred to as precision medicine).
  • 27. 27 • In 2019 there were about 26 billion IoT devices and it’s estimated by statista.com that their number will increase to 30.73 billion in 2020 and to 75.44 billion in 2025. • The market value is about $ 150 billion with estimated 15 IoT devices for a person in the US by 2030.
  • 28. 28 • #IoT also fuels edge computing, thus data storage and computation become closer to the points of action, enabling saves in bandwidth and low latency. • IoT will transform the user experience profoundly, providing opportunities that weren’t possible before. • Gaining this experience may be forced by the pandemic, when people are spending almost all their time at home.
