New mobile network addresses “challenges of human race”

A new generation of mobile network technology can be employed to help deal with many of the challenges facing the human race.

That’s the view of a senior executive at the mobile technology company, Nokia, speaking recently at ITU Telecom World, an annual UN telecommunications conference, held this year in Bangkok, Thailand.

The technology under discussion is 5G or the fifth generation of cellular networks, which has quicker speeds and higher data capacity than the existing 4G network.
