Communication transformation

Communications—the technologies and services that connect us to each other—is not only being transformed by innovation but also rapidly becoming more deeply embedded in the global economy and in our daily lives. It's key to everything from the future of entertainment to the rising importance of remote work, and new technologies have been a consistent source of growth for firms in this sector. This is typified by the ongoing rollout of 5G wireless, which is set to revolutionize global telecommunications and could generate more than $150 billion in new annual revenues through this decade, according to Morgan Stanley Research.*
