“Smart cities” refers to the concept of using technology to bring together physical aspects of cities, from cars and street lights to the buildings and residents, and integrating them through data, analytics, and communication. It has become such a significant topic that it will be a centerpiece of next year’s world-renowned Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Smart cities will soon take a major leap forward — thanks to a groundbreaking technology, 5G, or the 5th generation wireless network.

5G is anticipated to be 100 times faster than the current 4G network, which many of our devices utilize today, and 5G will dramatically reduce the time it takes to share information.
