Intel also promised the “eHealth equipment and AR/VR simulations.”

The 5G is term Intel used to describe the 5th generation of wireless mobile networks. The 5G system will provide a refined 4G standard by increasing the network efficiency and will support the IoT (Internet of Things) enabled devices. The 5G standards will also allow operating in the millimeter wave bands up to 60Hz; this will offer very low latency and fantastic bandwidth. Talking about the 5G technology, Intel is planning to bring this technology to the laptops by 2019.
