2018/10/20: IOT is driving the need for new networks and computing on the edge.
5G models are varied and flexible; expect companies to compete based on their ingenuity in implementing them.
5G is important to low-latency, high-bandwidth applications, but competitors such as LoRa may dominate smart homes and other low-bandwidth uses.
Edge computing will enable autonomous driving and the empowered mobile workforce.
Competition will determine who wins the new network race, and I expect some surprising candidates will emerge for your investment dollar.
Wireless infrastructure, not data centers, may prove to be the larger energy consumer.

Telefoni cellulari e cordless tornano sul banco degli imputati. Un nuovo lavoro degli scienziati svedesi guidati da Lennart Hardell, del Dipartimento di oncologia dell'ospedale universitario di 195150rebro, ha calcolato che usare per più di 10 anni telefonini o apparecchi senza fili, appoggiati sempre allo stesso orecchio, moltiplica da tre a cinque volte e mezzo il
Nearly two years ago, the FCC outlined its rules for net neutrality. Notably absent were rules for wireless networks. There are several legitimate reasons that the same rules applied to wired networks can not apply to wireless networks. However, the same danger lies in leaving wireless networks unguarded against the whims of its administrators. As we move more and more towards a wireless dominated internet, those dangers will become more pronounced.
Some claim to be hypersensitive to electromagnetism. Science has already solved what's really going on.
