Positively transforming industries, sectors and communities
5G is the next generation of mobile technologies, designed to support new and diverse services that will transform the way we live and work.
AMTA has published an introductory brochure explaining the significance, role and benefits of 5G. Download a copy here. This document is ideal for those seeking an overview of the key issues.
5G will deliver faster speeds with greater real-time control, networks with greater capacity and lower latency. In doing so 5G will enable connectivity to billions of devices, the Internet of Things (IoT) and a truly connected society. Examples include driverless vehicles, immersive virtual reality video, smart homes, smart cities and highly automated industrial processes.
Australia’s 5G future will require Government to work collaboratively with the mobile telecommunications industry to provide optimal policy settings to support the deployment of 5G mobile networks. The allocation of new radio-frequency spectrum as well as updated regulation to support efficient mobile network deployment are two key Government responsibilities that are critical to the success of 5G.
The mobile telecommunications sector will continue to drive the evolution of 5G. Industry is focused on being prepared and ready to ensure that 5G meets expectations and delivers value across industries, sectors and communities. Government has a key role in ensuring that key policy and regulatory settings (eg. - spectrum management and network deployment rules) are streamlined and support the mobile telecommunications industry to deliver the 5G step-change in network performance that will support a connected society.
5G in partnership with 4G will continue and enhance the role of mobile telecommunications as a driver / enabler of productivity and connectivity throughout the economy and society.
AMTA will work cooperatively with Government to create Australia’s 5G connected future.
