His career in the mobile industry spans 20 years, having joined Orange in 1999.

Will 5G have a profound impact on every industry and every consumer?

The 5G standard is also the first to support the specific behaviours of IoT devices which can ‘sleep’ for months and only ‘wake up’ for a specific event – such as major flooding incident, for example.

This will make mass IoT deployments across the UK a reality, bringing a wealth of operational and efficiency benefits to the energy, utilities, logistics, supply chain and smart cities sectors.

It’s also important to stress that the true potential of 5G will only be realised over the course of several years as the technology continues to evolve.

Further down the line, we can expect to see 5G underpinning the converged network for the UK’s digital economy, with customers switching seamlessly across fixed, Wi-Fi and cellular technologies.
