This edition is designed to change the whole scenario of the Internet by connecting virtually everyone and everything together.
To do so, the 5G network is set to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, lesser time for data transfer and huge network capacity that allows higher performance and improved user experience.
With that said, this can be the right option to push industrial players to a whole new level as well the right antidote to cure the implications due to the COVID-19 pandemic that is said to last at least 2 years.
So, what industries are we talking about here and how will 5G can help transform them in making tremendous impacts to the economy?
With the fast data transfer and higher bandwidth, 5G can help manufacturers reorganize the factory floor layout and improve production standards.Also it will increase the collection of data and provide real-time data analysis for machines in the factory, as well as for devices out in the field. This will automatically increase the production capability and efficiency, thus making it more profitable.
2. Health care
This is one of the crucial sectors that needs 5G in their system. Several aspects of health care can be transformed , including an increase of telehealth on mobile devices to patients in rural areas and to speed up analyzing health data in real-time.As a patient we can receive medical diagnosis and treatments without wasting a second.

Banks can be offering lightning-fast services to remote customers while gaining a deeper understanding into customers’ behavior in real-time that allows personalized products and services. Plus, mobile banking will work without lesser interruptions.
WIth 5G, you can stream contents effortlessly thanks to Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) being built into the technology. With that, you will be able to watch videos or play video with seamless experience. 5G also enables for a lower cost per gigabyte ratio, which means streaming capabilities will be more cost efficient.

In August, the National Digital Network a.k.a Jendela was introduced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin which will prepare the nation for a gradual transition to 5G technology.
This would begin by expanding the 4G mobile broadband coverage and improving mobile broadband speeds from 25Mbps to 35Mbps, enabling 7.5 million premises with access to gigabit-speed fixed line broadband.
2020 might not be a fruitful year, but with upcoming technologies like this, we can say the future will be bright.
