The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is currently near the completion of the Release 16 (R16) 5G standard, which will introduce much-needed features for enterprise applications. The manufacturing world and several other enterprise verticals are anticipating this release with great interest. In fact, many industries are halting their technology choices until R16 equipment is market ready. However, it is not correct to say that R16 will be the first 3GPP release that will introduce enterprise-specific features; there have been many previous improvements in both 4G and 5G networks that were specific to enterprise networks, the most important of which were introduced in Release 15 (R15).
