As 5G, new generation of wireless technology, started to be implemented all around the world, scientists and engineers have been working to use more of its benefits in their fields. One of the most interesting areas that 5G, and ultra fast communications in general, is being devised is the networked systems. Amongst network-based systems, telerobotic has attracted most attention thanks to its numerous applications in medicine, under water explorations, rescue systems, and outer space discovery. However, there are challenges and considerations in developing such systems based on 5G technology. In this paper we are going to review some of these challenges also talk about the key benefits of 5G and its use case in robotics. This paper introduces main novel features and properties of 5G networks, such as network slicing, eMBB, uRLLC, mMTC, and more. An immediate utilisation of 5G is due to its ultra low latency capabilities, and is discussed in latency critical services. As an outcome, 0.25-100 ms is the range of delays experienced in such services utilising 5G with error rates less than 10-3.
