5G

Prepare your business for the future with 5G

Technology is advancing so quickly these days it hardly seems possible to keep up. Every time we get used to the latest innovation, we find out there’s another on the horizon or that even just came out.

Many technologies that were once the stuff of science fiction have become so mundane and commonplace that we take them for granted. They have become fundamental to supporting today’s workforce.

Consider high-quality video and audio via network connection. Video calls and conferences are the bread and butter of modern distributed workforces, with many companies going entirely remote. We don’t notice the quality of our video or audio communications unless it’s poor or disrupted. Similarly, the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices that communicate directly with one another has become part of the background, unless they aren’t working. These technologies have something in common: all are reliant on high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity. 5G is the best way to get that connectivity.

5G is essential for today’s enterprise networks

While 4G LTE is still widely used and effective for enterprise networks, 5G represents a profound leap forward in connectivity, with only fiber offering more powerful connections at the cost of flexibility and, well, cost.

With speeds that are up to 100 times faster than 4G LTE, enterprises leveraging 5G connections benefit from superior access to existing applications. They can add additional or more data-intensive applications to their portfolio of tools without slowing down their network.

Even large data transfers happen in a matter of milliseconds, enhancing real-time connectivity. Video conference and collaboration across distributed sites goes from a potentially awkward and laborious task to a seamless process. In this way, enterprises can effectively simulate the free-flowing collaboration that defined in-office work. Stable, reliable connectivity even during peak network usage further enhances these collaboration capabilities.

Drive greater efficiency with superior connectivity

The current economic environment is a challenging one, and every business needs to maximize its efficiency to stay competitive.

Integrating 5G into your network architecture is an excellent way to enhance your business efficiency. With 5G, real-time data transfer and analysis is more efficient, so you can simplify logistics and enhance the movement of goods and services through your supply chain. Robust and reliable connections reduce network downtime, which can improve the customer experience, increase profitability, and help save on network management costs.

By supporting an infrastructure of connected devices and sensors, you can leverage more advanced automation to minimize errors and further decrease downtime by eliminating busywork and freeing up employee time to work on more valuable tasks.

Prepare for tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities today

While 5G is far from being table stakes for many businesses, it nevertheless represents one of the best available network connectivity options and, consequently, an assumed requirement for emerging technologies.

Consider the growing proliferation of tools that leverage virtual and augmented reality. These tools can provide significant benefits in a variety of use cases by enabling advanced simulation capabilities for training, or for real-time access to relevant information. For example, medical schools can use virtual reality to train students in risk-free environments. Augmented reality can help medical professionals access relevant patient information during consultations, such as patient histories and prescriptions. Augmented reality can even potentially enable advanced capabilities like remote surgeries for patients that can’t be moved or are facing significant time constraints.

All these use cases require extremely high bandwidth and flexible network connectivity to support real-time streaming of high-fidelity video and audio. 5G delivers both.

Don’t fall behind: The next-gen is on the horizon

It’s also important to remember that while 5G can still seem like a new standard, and it is, wireless technologies will continue to evolve. The next generations are already being discussed. While 6G and 7G aren’t going to be available anytime soon, enterprises can’t afford to rest on their laurels.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) systems and solutions, similar to virtual and augmented reality, are being developed with future network capabilities in mind. Enterprises certainly can’t expect to simply upgrade to 6G or 7G once they’re available to take advantage of more advanced AI and ML offerings: by then, they will have fallen significantly behind in integrating these systems and solutions into their workflows and gaining the benefits.

But by transitioning to 5G today, enterprises can begin to use these technologies immediately. This will enhance their efficiency by allowing them to automate processes and perform advanced analytics to improve operations. It will enable them to familiarize themselves with these technologies as the evolve.
