The mobile communications network of tomorrow is being researched today in Dresden. While work is currently underway to introduce 5G, the University of Technology is already focusing on its successor. What do the new standards mean for the business and industry of the future, as well as network operators, mobile-phone providers and their customers? The TU specialised research is finding answers to this question. Dresden scientists are playing a major role in shaping the future of mobile communications.
With fast Internet, high speed data, new technologies, Dresden is the cradle of the next generation of mobile communications. 5G means much more than just fast mobile Internet. The data transfer rate is up to 100 times higher than for 4G, enabling more than just music, movies and images to be downloaded to Smartphones instantly online.
5G also facilitates digital networking and high-speed data exchanging. As such, the network will be able to support new fields of application and future-oriented technologies, and contribute significantly to areas such as Industry 4.0, smart health, autonomous farming, urban development, the Internet of Things (IoT), and much more.
