5G: transforming user experiences on devices

community.arm.com, Jul. 09, 2019 – 

Arm has a wide interest in 5G, as it will be a transformative technology for a range of applications and markets. Focusing specifically on markets where Arm has a foothold, 5G will enable a whole new range of technological innovation in the automotive industry, the internet of things (IoT), infrastructure and mobile computing. Just think about the possibilities of autonomous driving, smart cities and smart homes, and advanced mobile networks that will be enabled by 5G. While 5G is not just about changing how consumers interact and use their devices, the impact will still be profound.

Back at the start of 2019, we talked about getting devices '5G-ready', with over 1.5 billion 5G-capable smartphone devices likely to be in circulation by 2024. Alongside the actual device technology, the user experience on a variety of devices, such as smartphones, smart TVs, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) headsets, PCs and wearables, will be fundamentally transformed by the 5G rollout, which is beginning in 2019. 5G will mean far faster speeds, far lower latency and far faster and more ubiquitous connectivity for devices – especially for high bandwidth applications. As a result, due to 5G, current use cases on devices will substantially improve and, at the same time, completely new use cases will be created.

Consumers will be using their devices far more in the future

Before looking at these use cases, it is important to consider how consumer trends fit into all of this. Results from a survey of over 5,000 consumers by Ovum, an independent analyst and consultancy firm specializing in telecommunications, media and technology industries, show that between 20 and 30 percent of consumers plan to increase the usage of many services on their devices in the future. Therefore, these services – and the actual devices too – will need to be faster and better. This is where 5G comes into play, enabling more responsive and reliable connections on devices, particularly for compute-intensive tasks, such as video streaming and viewing, AR and VR and mobile gaming.
