The mobile Internet that will be enabled by LTE-Advanced Pro and the way in which we interact with it will change significantly within the next few years. From a usage point of view, it is anticipated that by 2020, each person, globally speaking, will consume on average as much as 5 GB of data each month, in addition to the traffic generated by 20-30 billion connected things. More significantly, not only will the mobile network be significantly faster, but even more applications will become possible. The video experience will be improved globally; mobile virtual reality will be available; networked vehicles and perhaps self-driving cars will roam our streets; the Internet of Things will enrich and make our lives more productive; and a mobile cloud will allow access to our data anytime, anywhere.
