Enabling the Green Digital Twin

The rapid growth of 5G means a new paradigm for telecommunications and a quantum leap forward compared with previous inter-generation evolutions, typically focused on the bandwidth increase side.

5G brings three different classes of quality of service (QoS), each one of them focused on the key requirements of the three main clusters of use cases.

Those are eMBB (enhanced Mobile Broadband), focused on bringing ultra-high bandwidth to the end user, URLLC (Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications) focused on ultra-reliable networks with extremely low latency and mMTC (massive Machine Type Communications), focused on providing connectivity with a high density of devices, where high bandwidth and low latency are not key requirements.
