How will 5G impact the IT market and its relationship with the telecom industry?

5G is a bit like if we were sitting here in the mid-90s and somebody cooked up this new thing that is now known as the Internet. 5G is a massive accelerator on all the things that are going on in technology. 200 Petabytes of data a day are generated by the typical city of 1 million people. If you take a level 4 autonomous car in 2020, it's going to generate 4 Terabytes of new data every single day. With a 4G network, you have zero chance of dealing with this autonomous car. You need 5G, and in fact, 5G may not be enough to enable it…There are challenges with 5G. In many countries, there are so many carriers that they can't make any money. Can all of the carriers in the world implement 5G? Probably not. It's expensive, and it's going to require all kinds of new equipment and expenses. VMware NSX with NFV is very involved in a lot of 5G deployments. We're super excited about 5G. We love what's going on there.
