Embedded Executive: Mike Fahrion, CTO, Multi-Tech Systems

Is 5G more hype than reality? After all this time, I sure hope not. There are pockets where 5G is actually in use, but a real full-scale rollout is still quite a ways away, particularly in the embedded and industrial sectors.

So, when and where will we finally see 5G? That’s the question I asked Mike Fahrion, the Chief Technology Officer of Multi-Tech Systems in this week’s Embedded Executives podcast.. And as you’ll hear, I didn’t let him off the hook too easily.
