After years of hype about gigabit speeds that will let you download full-length movies in mere seconds, 5G is close to becoming a reality. Last year gave us a taste of 5G as Verizon launched a home broadband service using the next-generation wireless technology and AT&T brought 5G service to a dozen cities.
This year will see the launch of actual 5G wireless networks along with phones that will run on them. Verizon will flip the switch
on its mobile 5G network April 11, beginning in parts of Chicago and
Minneapolis. Verizon’s first 5G smartphone will be the Moto Z3 — sort
of. On March 14, the Z3’s 5G Moto Mod will be available to preorder.
That add-on will enable 5G connectivity for the Z3. Verizon said its 5G
service can be added to any unlimited plan and will cost an extra $10 a
Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G
may be the first true 5G phone (i.e. not retrofitted) out of the gate,
but other phone makers, including LG, Huawei and ZTE have announced 5G
devices of their own.
I’m of course not referring to the Public Enemy song which poignantly predicts “it’s a new thing….they even had it on the news….don’t believe the hype”, rather, the media hysteria and enormous advertising blitz by some wireless providers regarding the launch of 5G. Michael Powell, former Chairman of the FCC was recently quoted saying that 5G is “25% technology and 75% hype.”
We live in a mobile world. While there is no doubt 5G will be a catalyst to enable low latency mobile applications (applications that require sub 10ms performance to allow smart cars, smart cities, VR, and many others to function), how does the Channel community monetize 5G in the foreseeable future? The short answer is, there is a small opportunity to monetize 5G.
Content creation, distribution and ownership are having more sway than ever on the world of communications and that influence is likely to accelerate as the next generation of mobile networks is constructed and consumed.
As this is happening, it does help to find out what the people at the major intersection points of technology, communications and content are thinking, and how they’re planning to take advantage of the capabilities that are just around the corner.
To that end, Light Reading took a tour of the new Disney’s new StudioLAB to see what kinds of projects are in the works and how the company’s work with Cisco and other technology partners will help it become a new kind of service provider — one creating content experiences for mobile devices and public spaces alike.
Check out this interview with Ben Havey, VP of the Technology Innovation Group at The Walt Disney Studios, and just imagine what’s ahead. Once you’re done reading this interview, please have a look at our quick video recapping the StudioLAB tour and my blog with some additional reporting and analysis.
Phil Harvey: We’re in a space called StudioLAB. Is it more of a studio or more of a lab?
SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ:QCOM), announced that its upcoming flagship mobile platform will feature a system-on-chip (SoC) built on the 7nm process node.
