Fields of application for 5G

Discover some areas where 5G will make the difference

5G in public safety

Quick and appropriate intervention based on live images and data.

5G in transport and logistics

Why should you jump on the 5G express train?

5G in manufacturing

Produce, assemble, train and get the information you need faster.

Advantages of 5G

Speed
  • Very high speed mobile broadband
  • Theoretical maximum speeds far higher than 4G
  • Possible alternative to high-speed fixed broadband, when the latter is unavailable
Latency
  • 5G traffic response time theoretically reduced to 1/1000th of a second
  • Instantaneousness and reliability crucial for applications requiring an immediate response (virtual reality, autonomous transport, robotics, etc.)
Network slicing

5G will allow the network to be broken down into "slices" and assigned to specific applications such as emergency services during an event.

Energy efficiency

5G networks use little power when traffic is low, which reduces the power consumption of the antennas.

Availability & deployment

Where is 5G available?

The 5G network will also be rolled out gradually. To find out if 5G is available in your area, consult our interactive map.

The roll out of 5G will take place in different phases

Both end users and businesses will benefit from the unprecedented advantages of this new mobile technology.
