Thorsten Robrecht and Dan Rodriguez debate the differences between 5G standards and technologies and those generations that came earlier and the likely direction of network evolution required to encompass new business opportunities for all the players on the field. 5G was very much front-and-centre at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, featuring prominently as a prime enabler of the Internet of Things and its importance in vertical applications.
