The term “5G” is applied to a broad range of applications, from mobile broadband to fixed access.  But foremost among the drivers for 5G is the desire to use mm-wave technology to support the Internet of Things (IoT), including the growing area of M2M (machine-to-machine) communications.  From the IoT we get the requirement to be able to support 10-100x the number of devices supported by today’s networks, which leads to the question, “who is going to create all these devices?”  In this presentation, we explore the implications of a dramatic increase in the number of wireless device developers on product testing, and discuss how increased access to testing equipment can help to smooth the path to the 5G future.
