The Next-Generation Information and Communications Infrastructure that Will Support New Industrial and Social Transformation
February 22, 2018
As digital technology including AI and IoT evolves and its range of applications expands, the world has recently seen an acceleration of digital transformation that makes maximal use of digitalization to create new processes and business models. In many countries, joint initiatives of public and private sectors for innovation have begun under national strategies that aim for industrial and social transformation through digital technology. Amid these developments, national governments have been preparing for the 5G (5th generation mobile communication systems) as a digital strategy. The ability to connect many devices simultaneously, low latency and high reliability as well as ultra-high speed and high capacity are crucial to the nextgeneration information and communications infrastructure that will support digital transformation. 5G holds great potential to support the evolution of digital transformation, and to introduce improved products or services and new business models that bring added values, such as self driving cars, remote medicine, VR, and AR. This report discusses the ”5G. A Future Beyond Imagination.” concept put forward by NEC and the three transformations aimed at realization of the concept, along with initiatives for the creation of new social values in the 5G era through co-creation with customers, and NEC's next-generation information and communications infrastructure that will support those initiatives.
