About the issue:
In this issue, we set our sights on 5G—which, contrary to popular belief, is not just about phones and internet speeds. Forget phones, 5G is primed to impact smart cities, factories of the future and telemedicine (Phones Are Just The Tip Of The 5G Iceberg, p. 12).
Asia is fast emerging as a global leader in 5G deployments, so we spoke with Huawei’s chief technology officer, Paul Scanlan, to find out how the company grew from a re-seller of telephone switches to assuming pole position in the race to 5G (Follow The Money, p. 24).
Finally, don't miss the fifth edition of the Asian Scientist 100—an
annual list that highlights 100 of Asia’s top R&D talent. From cryptography to clean energy, the 2020 cohort (Asian Scientist 100: 2020 Edition, p. 36) are changing the world with their ground-breaking inventions and discoveries.
