"Intelligent Applications for a 5G Connected World"

It is well recognized that the need for fast access to information and data forms an integral part of life in the present day “digital world”. The availability of “fast, uniform, reliable and cost effective” connectivity anywhere, anytime for (human) users on the move is essential for enabling the ultimate user experience. Applications around Machine to Machine (M2M) communications and Internet of Things (IoT) would further enhance the user experience and transform industries and organizations. With the time-frame of deployment of 5G just around the corner in 2020, it is about time to seriously look into intelligent applications for 5G.
