5G - The Living Network

InterDigital has been at the forefront of wireless network development from analog to voice to data to visual. Today, we are focused on the next major shift – the living network. The living network, 5G, is more than just the next step in the evolution of mobile broadband. It will be a key enabler in the future of the digital world.

Advances in mobile technology have made mobile use easier, faster and more accessible, but have also caused an exponential increase in adoption and demand rates. This increase calls for a smarter, new kind of network that enables innovative services –immersive video, M2M/IoT, tactile internet, mission critical apps and more – through wireless core technologies and a programmable infrastructure designed to meet new requirements to change the way people live, work and play. 

With proven standards leadership, InterDigital is well positioned for strong contributions to the design of 5G across multiple Standards Organizations. Currently, InterDigital’s 5G R&D team has a strong focus on innovation in areas that include Air Interfaces, Networks, M2M/IoT, Spectrum Sharing, and Services Enabled by 5G Networks.
