This talk by Mário Marques da Silva, presented at ICSTR Lisbon – International Conference on Science & Technology Research (on-line), Portugal, 01-02 April 2021, provides an insight into the Fifth Generation of Cellular Communications (5G) and its future developments. It presents the current 5G transmission techniques and those expected in future developments. An introduction to the Sixth Generation of Cellular Communications (6G) is also made, as well as the expected associated transmission techniques. The insertion of 5G and 6G within the framework of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is discussed in this conference. Consisting of a paradigm shift, when compared to previous generations, 5G supports a myriad of new services based on the Internet of Things (IoT) and Vehicle to Vehicle Communications (V2V), supporting autonomous vehicles, Smart Cities, Smart Homes, remote surgeries, etc. While 5G plays an important role in the initial implementation of the 4th Industrial Revolution, 6G will address a number of new services, such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, holographic services, advanced Internet of Things, wireless brain-computer interaction and higher speed mobility.
