5G, the fifth generation of mobile technology.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Recommendation ITU-R M.2083 sets out three main directions for developments in mobile communications technology: 

  • Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), 
  • Enhanced Mobile Bandwidth (Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC)),
  • Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC).

The first bands planned for 5G use are 694-790 MHz, 3400-3800 MHz, and 24.25-27.5 GHz.
