Building our digital society’s future also means building tomorrow’s networks. Remaining fully conversant with and retaining control over the next network generations is the key to making the most of them. That’s why Orange is investing in research and innovation to develop services that will leverage 5G, a better distributed, more efficient and more intelligent network – or, in other words, the foundation for a digital world everyone can enjoy.

5G is the fifth mobile network generation and will start going live in 2020. It will be up to 10 times faster than 4G and be able to carry huge amounts of data for people at home, at work or on the move for professionals and the general public. It will be more responsive, too. So businesses will go more digital, telemedicine will go mainstream, and drones will be able to supervise industrial sites more efficiently and effectively, for instance.
VR Collaboration enables employees to hold full-immersion meetings in virtual workspaces.
Orange will be connecting H4D’s telemedicine booth to take that to the next level, enabling doctors to perform medical procedures too.
