V2X is advancing as car manufacturers realize its life-saving potential, but barriers need to be overcome before everyone realizes safety benefits.
Emerging 5G capabilities are transforming consumer and industry communication capacities and beyond previously imagined limits. Most design engineers realize that widespread 5G deployment and integration requires specialized components to enable the required speed, strength and reliability of the network. While suppliers such as Molex have been designing antennas and micro connectors for decades, they have had to pivot their design, testing and manufacturing approaches for component optimization in 5G applications.
Almost three-quarters of mobile service providers have begun 5G network rollouts or plan to do so by Q3 of 2021, according to a March 2020 study by Business Performance Innovation Network. And, everyday devices are being designed for 5G compatibility with an eye for widespread deployment and adoption.
