Geneva – More than 3,000 IT specialists started a month-long UN meeting on Monday in Geneva to agree on technical specifications for the future 5G mobile network standard.
It said this is to offer far greater bandwidths and faster speeds than the current 4G technology.
The telecommunications and electronics industry aimed to bring the next-generation technology to the market by 2020, which would enable watching 3D TV on mobile devices, satellite-aided automatic steering of vehicles, or remote-controlled surgeries.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″]
The IT specialists, corporate representatives and government officials from 193 member states of the UN International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will discuss technical standards.
Also to be discussed would be radio frequencies to be used for 5G at the World Radio Communication Conference.
Other topics include improving flight tracking for airplanes and satellite-supported navigation for vehicles and ships. (dpa/NAN)
