The fifth-generation mobile networks (5G) standards represent the next generation of mobile telephony subsequent to the current 4G LTE technology now prevalent in mobile devices around the globe. Public 5G networks are set to launch at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, with commercial rollout in 2020, leading to full market penetration by 2025.

With the 5G standards nearing ratification, the current state of the art consists of scattered 5G-like deployments around the world, as well as 5G test networks – most notably in Oulu, this small city in northern Finland a short distance from the Arctic Circle.

The greater challenge surrounding 5G, however, is understanding the disruptive nature of the technology.
