Re: Commercial Use of 5G
@Ariella, You are correct. I totally agree. 5G will be more advantageous to businesses because they will be able to solve problems faster, respond to customers faster and deliver services faster. I just hope they don't forget about residential customers who want 5G. :)

Re: Commercial Use of 5G
@freehe from what I'm discovering about it, I'd say 5G will be even more valuable to businesses than to individual consumers.

Re: Will 5G get Kubernetes?
@Ariella.  I totall agree. AT&T and Verizon started as a small telephone company that is now a global corporation that has merged into several different industries. IBM was only known for mainframe software and hardware and are now moving into cloud technologies. Google started out as just a small search engine and it now the top search engine in addition to being a top technology company.

Re: Will 5G get Kubernetes?
@mhhf1ve. Good points. It requires have the right skillset of employees. If employees refuse change and refuse to acquire new skillset or embrace the culture change of companies they should be fired because they are hindering progres. Although change is scary it is inevitable.

IoV
IT cannot create a new techology without an acronym. IoV will be great for cities, rural and underserved areas. It can reduce traffic jams, increase traffic flow, reduce traffic accidents especially those involving commercial vehicles where drivers are overworked, tired and have less awareness or traffic conditions when driving for long hours.

IoV is being implemented in Europe, Japan and India. Brazil has plans to use IoV.

Commercial Use of 5G
@afwriter, Wow, it is exciting that commercial use of 5G may occur sooner. I can't wait for 5G. I want it now. LOL! 5G will defintely provide benefits to residential and commercial customers. However, implementing 5G will require companies to change or develop a new infrastructure for the networks, bandwidth and data centers.

<Maybe it also has to be accompanied by significant layoffs....>

@mhhf1ve Some of these companies have had significant layoffs, like IBM, though they usually attribute that to "restructuring" forced by losees.

Interesting, yet so many companies are making significant shifts in what they are about -- like IBM getting into cloud and Intel now getting into AI.

Re: Will 5G get Kubernetes?
mhhf1ve,

Well, there's also just sheer technical churn; average time of an engineeer with a company is still pretty short in the telcos (though getting longer, last I checked).  There just aren't going to be as many tech people growling that this is the way the business works and this is what we do and it's going to be that way forever, at least not compared to other industries, because no one's expecting to be at that desk for thirty years and no one's hired with a job of resisting change anymore.  So again, I think the revolution will be PDQ compared with comparable cultural changes in other industries.

Re: Will 5G get Kubernetes?
Ariella,

I'm not sure it will take a decade but I think it will be a few years for the cultural difference between open-cloud-native and open-cloud-immigrant companies to disappear. The people who study corporate culture claim they can still tell by feel that AT&T and Verizon started as phone companies and Comcast as a cable company, and that's decades of all of them operating.  Ford was famously engineer-dominated and GM designer-dominated for decades after Henry Ford and Alfred P. Sloan were gone. So actually I think the cultural divide will probably close faster than such things have historically: it's a faster more competitive world and personnel at the top in the telcos are younger and more innovation-oriented than in many other industries.
