More About That 5G Thing| It's A Technological Revolution| Don't Miss It

The 5G Ecosystem


Over the past few months I've been trying to get the readers up to speed on 5G technology.  This will probably be one of my last Press Releases on this subject as it will soon be out here in the light of day.

While current 4G networks were fast enough to give us many products and services we use today, they’ve been a bit of a disappointment, too. 

It may surprise you to learn that the United States is in 43rd place when it comes to global mobile download speeds. And the 4G networks we use every day are already congested from the huge volume of data we send and receive. Yet our consumer demand for more bandwidth is seemingly endless.

But with 5G wireless technology, that will all change. Download speeds will be, on average, 100 times faster than current speeds. The migration from 4G to 5G technology will be revolutionary.

There will be an explosion of services leveraging these superfast networks that were once thought of as purely science fiction. And the companies behind these 5G-powered services will become the next Uber or Netflix.

For instance…

A Self-Driving Future

Self-driving cars are already a reality today. These vehicles need to leverage these fast, nearly delay-free, wireless networks to operate safely.

But because 4G technology just isn’t sufficient, the widespread rollout of self-driving cars will need 5G wireless networks.

Today, these cars can mostly drive themselves. But for a small percentage of the time, human intervention is required. Human operators take remote control when vehicles encounter tricky situations, such as entering or exiting busy freeways or reversing into loading docks.

This kind of remote control isn’t possible on our current 4G networks. The “latency”—or delay—from command to response is, on average, 100 milliseconds (0.1 seconds).

That may not seem like much. But when it comes to something as serious as remote control of moving vehicles, the connection has to be nearly instantaneous.

With 5G, latency will drop to just one millisecond (0.001 seconds)—virtually nonexistent—making remote control of self-driving vehicles possible.

Starsky Robotics is already doing this in Florida. The company is currently testing a fleet of self-driving semi-trucks. These trucks are able to drive themselves on a familiar setting, such as freeways. But human operators, who are real truck drivers, are able to remotely take over to back the trucks into loading docks or help them exit freeways.

So 5G wireless connection will make widespread self-driving technology a reality.

And there’s something else…

Holographic Telepresence

According to a 2017 Gallup poll, 43% of Americans reported that they did some or all of their work remotely.

Even with more and more Americans working remotely, it’s still not realistic for many to give up going into the office. Video conferencing is a great tool, but it doesn’t replace the productivity of being in the same room with colleagues, customers, or business partners.

But by using lasers to create a realistic, 3D versions of people or objects, holographic projection technology can make it appear as if they’re right in front of you. Professionals would be able to work entirely from home (or while traveling) and “holo-commute” for important meetings or discussions.

While it might seem like just a staple of sci-fi films over the years, this technology is already available today. In the high-tech industry, it’s called “volumetric telepresence” or “holographic telepresence.”

One of the companies in this space is LA-based 8i Studios. The company uses a controlled environment to record images of people or objects, then projects those images as holograms in a different location.

Holographic technology is available and in use today

As you might expect, this sort of technology requires a lot of data and bandwidth. And as I’ve said in the past, current 4G wireless networks are already completely overloaded.

But with 5G wireless speeds, holographic telepresence will become possible on a wide scale. And because the technology is wireless, it will take just seconds to “pop up” as a holographic image.

There will likely come a day when you can work from the comfort of your own home and simply “teleport” via hologram to the office to chat with colleagues or sit in on meetings.

No more long commutes… No more getting caught in rush-hour traffic… And no more cubicles.

What Comes Next After the Smartphone?

The iPhone or Android smartphone in your pocket will soon become obsolete as well.

The technology that will replace it is AR, or “augmented reality.”

With an AR headset, graphics, images, or data are overlaid on top of the world you normally see… You’re able to view the real world. But it’s augmented, or mixed, with these other visuals.

One of my favorite companies in this space is Florida-based Magic Leap. In August, Magic Leap released its first AR headset, the Magic Leap One.

The Magic Leap One AR headset

It’s still an early prototype. None of us would be caught dead wearing something like that when walking down the street.

But in the next 12 to 18 months, we’ll see AR lenses that look more and more like normal pairs of glasses. Even Apple CEO Tim Cook recently said that AR would soon be as commonplace as eating three meals a day.

Imagine sitting in a café and putting on a pair of AR glasses. Without looking at or touching your smartphone, you can read all your emails, receive and send messages, check the most recent stock prices, and even scroll through the pages of The Wall Street Journal. All the information will appear as if it were floating just a few feet in front of your face.

Once that sort of technology becomes widespread, what use would you have for a smartphone?

AR will make it possible to do everything you can do on a smartphone—text, call, check emails, browse the web, etc.—by using voice commands, hand gestures, and eye movements while wearing an intuitive pair of AR glasses.

And just last month, AT&T announced that an early rollout of its 5G network will be launched at Magic Leap’s headquarters in South Florida. This tells me that Magic Leap will be incorporating 5G with its wearable AR devices.

This is what I mean when I say that 5G will be revolutionary. It won’t just improve our current technology. It will open the doors to an entire suite of technology that would have been impossible only a few years ago.

If you’re an investor, this needs to be on your radar. The time to position yourself isn’t in the future… or even in the next month or year.

It’s now—right now.
