This IDC PlanScape provides baseline information for public safety agencies seeking guidance about when and why 5G will matter, how to deploy it successfully, and the key stakeholders that must be involved to ensure success."While public safety agencies will be able to evolve their network capabilities to accommodate these increasing demands for bandwidth, latency, and communication density, at some point, 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) won't be able to do some things as well as 5G. 5G brings to the table increased capabilities around video, support for connections and full-frame or multi-camera video footage from drones, real-time data integration, immersive reality (augmented reality[AR]/virtual reality[VR]/mixed reality), autonomous driving, computer vision, robotics, and so forth," according to Alison Brooks, research director, Smart Cities and Communities -- Public Safety.
