    There is no doubt 5G has the potential to revolutionise the way we interact with the physical and virtual world. Yet, guesstimates of how much of a generational shift in technology it will become range from “super-fast internet at some point” to “minority report-like daily lives.” But for gaming technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR), it’s clear that 5G rollout will be a catalyst in mainstream adoption. 

    Starting with what is usually hyped, we can look at the speeds of 5G. We can probably expect somewhere around 300-1000 Mb/s in the beginning, but there have been tests showcasing speeds towards 25Gb/s in specific environments.  For example, in Mitsubishi Electric and NTT DOCOMO’s 5G Outdoor Trials. In these conditions, it would be about 250 times faster than the average speed of 4G. If we equate this to Usain Bolt’s top sprinting speed (about 44km/h), it means 5G would make a person run at 11,180 km/h, or as fast as the fastest unmanned plane in the world, the Hypersonic aircraft X-43A.

    Amazon has finally made its entrance into the quantum arena with the launch of a service for AWS that enables scientists and developers to experiment with the weird and wonderful world of quantum computing.

    Braket, named after the common notation for quantum states, launched in preview today and will compete with IBM, Microsoft and Google on the futuristic frontier of cloud-based quantum computing. IBM launched its quantum cloud service in 2016, while Google and Microsoft plan to launch similar services in the near future.

  • "Smart IoT has helped bring together a community of practitioners to talk about IoT and intelligent edge, develop new ideas and create networks. Smart IoT differentiates itself through excellent speakers talking on relevant topics and the quality of the delegates. I think every conversation has been valuable. First time I have run out of business cards by 3pm!"
    Intelligent Edge Lead, HPe
  • "Arrow see Smart IoT and Cloud Expo Europe as a strategic event where we have the opportunity to bring the entire force of Arrow’s business to a place with customers relevant to all of our divisions and show the scale and ability of our One Arrow strategy"
    CTO, Arrow
  • "The show is good, we were here last year and we’ve definitely been busier on our stand than we were. It’s been a good morning so far, it’s important for us to get across, not just our technology, but the company as a whole and we’re meeting with lots of different people from lots of different verticals so this is key. We’re already talking about about booking a stand for next year."
    Regional Sales Director UK & Ireland, Telit
  • "We were looking for return on investment on our stand and activities at Smart IoT, so we set our targets of how many strong contacts we needed to make at the show. The teams at Closerstill Media and KTN really got behind us and we exceeded our targets."
    CEO, SmartWorld Connect
  • "It’s our first time at the show – we’ve found it very illuminating – to see what the industry is doing and to see how fast the industry is moving. It’s enabled us to promote into new areas, into new people. And, still enabled us to have that understanding from the customer base of where Siemens is, and what we do and how we fit into the world of digitisation"
    Business Director Data Services- Siemens
