Andrea Daly Aurenty Journalist

5G technology, although it was presented during 2016, continues to be implemented in different industries and its promises open the door for new applications that would not have been possible before. Due to the popularity of this technological advance in mobile networks, the intention to invest in technology is increasing and there are many companies in which you, as an investor, can get involved.

Some examples with interesting movement in the financial market are: AMD, Qualcomm, Nvidia, Corning, and Ciena.

Cisco, a renowned technology company, defines 5G as: “5G is the fifth generation of cellular technology. It is designed to increase speed, reduce latency and improve the flexibility of wireless services. 5G technology offers a theoretical maximum speed of 20 Gbps, while the maximum speed of 4G technology is only 1 Gbps.”

This can be translated as a more stable, faster and more efficient connection; that enhances the possibilities of almost all industries. One of the news that went around the world and demonstrated the possibilities offered by this technological advance was carried out during the 2019 Mobile World Congress, where 5G technology was used to perform a remote surgical intervention. This procedure made it possible to demonstrate how 5G makes communications become so real that it allows immediate actions without any delay.
