5G ETFs are an opportunity to invest in the future of smart cities.
Investment in the 5G rollout is taking off, with 5G ETFs set to offer flexible and diversified access to this market. 5G capacity could be essential to the spread of smart cities and we believe these two groundbreaking technologies are poised to revolutionize urban life in the coming decades.
What is 5G?
5G describes the innovation and infrastructure that will facilitate faster speeds, more functionality and lower latency in mobile phone technology. Its deployment has the potential to empower the network to provide high-speed ubiquitous connectivity to a greatly increased number of sensors or devices. It may also regulate their use, including prioritization, increased reliability and reduced redundancy. The significant extension of small cell deployment involved in 5G could improve speed, capacity, specialization and diversification in the network. It will likely facilitate for example, the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous driving, and significant developments in the use of virtual or augmented reality (VR/AR) products. Ericsson have predicted major 5G deployments from 2020, which other analysts see as a prerequisite for extending smart city capabilities.Read more
