Smart cities, Industry 4.0, remote surgery, immersive gaming and virtual reality are all examples of applications that 5G standalone promises to take to a new, unprecedented level. With massive speed, ultra-low latency and network slicing, 5G SA will enable new use cases and business models for both consumers and enterprises.
