Indianapolis 500 hosts ‘5G’ smart home

Sean Kinney for RCR Wireless:  In the run-up to the Indianapolis 500 race this weekend, a trio of tech heavy-hitters are demonstration pre-standardized 5G technologies in the context of a connected, smart home. Verizon, Ericsson and Intel are taking the opportunity to showcase consumer-facing entertainment aspects of ultra high capacity and ultra low latency network throughput including streaming virtual reality and 360-degree, 4K video.
