As the next evolution of wireless architecture, 5G will extend connectivity into all aspects of our lives. Providing high-speed access, however, will also “create massive infrastructure demand on cities,” as traditional cell towers are expected to be supplemented with a system of smaller nodes, says Jason Tofsky of Goldman Sachs Investment Banking. Tofsky also expects 5G’s growth to blur lines between technology companies and communications companies as business models naturally converge.

We could see some interesting combinations of technology companies and telecom and communications companies coming together in a way that ten years ago none of us would have thought was possible.
