2019 will be remembered as the year that 5G was actually deployed in certain areas of the United States and around the world. Indeed, some consumers are seeing the faster speeds and lower latencies that 5G promised. But enterprises are likely to be the first to really tap the advantages of 5G, which could propel industrial private wireless networks and the internet of things. What are the first 5G use cases likely to emerge in the enterprise? How can manufacturers, consumer devices, and other various industries and services utilize some of its core aspects, such as network slicing and low latency? And when is ubiquitous 5G going to be a reality for enterprises to take advantage of?
