5G is the next evolution, but that understates the profound change 5G implementation represents. 5G dramatically increases network bandwidth and exponentially increases network speeds, enabling applications that simply were not previously possible. 5G networks eventually will enable autonomous vehicles, real-time advanced analytics, and artificial intelligence that will be transformational across all industries and walks of life.
5G will enable 3 major groupings of use cases:

eMBB: Enhanced Mobile Broadband that will supply high bandwidth internet access for wireless connectivity, large-scale video streaming, and virtual reality.
URLLC: Ultra-reliable low-latency communication, or URLLC, is one of several different types of use cases supported by the 5G New Radio (NR) standard
mMTC: Massive Machine Type Communication which supports internet access for sensing, metering, and monitoring devices.

The move from 2G to 3G to 4G has been fairly linear and achieved through something more than incremental change but less than a technological revolution. 3G made the modern smartphone possible and delivered basic data and internet capabilities. 4G refined those networks and increased their speed, making mobile video viable.
