AbstractIn recent times, 5G has gained prevalence in learning and technology that it will be the game-changer of the coming decade. In the wake of the fourth industrial revolution, governments and businesses worldwide are also beginning to realize the seismic shift towards 5G. The speed of development and growth of 5G has not only gained momentum in the network and application domains but has also increased investment by leading technology companies such as Ericson, Huawei, Google, and AT&T. At a recent summit "AI for the Good of Humanity" Global Artificial Intelligence (AI), held in Riyadh on 21-22 October, and organized by the Saudi Data and AI Authority (SDAIA), Charles Yang, President of Huawei Middle East, said ""Huawei has adopted an ambitious long-term research and development strategy regarding AI, creating unprecedented opportunities through the synergy of AI with 5G connectivity, cloud, computing, and industrial applications". Introducing 5G technology marks the start of a new age of communication, impacting almost every aspect of everyday life. According to Deloitte, nearly 2,5 billion people are using smartphones, and 1,2 billion are using tablets. During 2017 alone, more than 175 billion applications were downloaded, some with over one billion users, which led to more data communication and interaction of billions of devices. The average download speed went from 8 Mbps on 3G to 32.5 Mbps on 4G and up to 240 Mbps on 5G. By 2021, the video will account for 78% of mobile data traffic, up from 60% in 2016. CISCO predicted that in 2019, and for the first time in history, the mobile network traffic would surpass the fixed network traffic.
