Piscataway, NJ — IEEE Spectrum reports today’s mobile users want faster data speeds and more reliable services. Industry’s next generation of wireless networks—5G—promises to deliver that, and much more.
With 5G, consumers will be able to download high-definition (HD) videos in less than a second (a task today that normally takes up to 10 minutes via 4G LTE). IEEE Spectrum also shares that today’s wireless engineers say these new 5G networks will rapidly boost development of other new ‘Smart City’ technologies such as robots and drones powered by autonomous systems, virtual reality (VR), and the Internet of Things (IoT).
BDPA, formerly known as Black Data Processing Associates, was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania over 45 years ago in 1975 to promote professional growth and technical development in underserved communities for those in or entering information and communications technology (ICT) oriented fields of interest and related industries.
