Those who work closely with the technology market have certainly heard about the 5G network, but what does having access to faster mobile internet make possible in terms of business and innovation possibilities?
In this post we will address this novelty that promises to innovate telecommunications, bringing more agility and great business opportunities. To learn more, read on.
What is 5G?
We are already familiar with 4G, the connection of most smartphones. But 5G is the next generation of wireless broadband, offering greater speed, greater stability, and the ability to connect multiple devices. While 4G has a speed of about 33 Mbps, 5G will reach up to 10 Gbps, i.e. 10 to 20 times faster.
The 5G network implementations promise a number of benefits that businesses can take advantage of. Many of these advantages apply to business and personal use, but some are specifically tailored to enhance business mobility solutions.
What are the main benefits and possibilities of the 5G network?
For companies interested in pursuing further evolution and technology, 5G represents a number of interesting possibilities. Here’s how.
Faster Data Speed
The most immediate benefit is higher data speeds. While the speed of 4G networks maxes out at 100 Mbps, 5G has the potential to reach 10 Gbps per second. With this speed, transferring large amounts of data will no longer be a problem.
Thus, 5G expands the possibility of solutions that can be offered in the mobile medium, as more complex services requiring higher speeds become possible.
Increased device capacity and spectrum bandwidth
A network can only handle a certain number of devices and data transmissions at one time, and 5G networks promise increased capacity and spectrum bandwidth.
It is estimated that 5G will be able to support up to one million devices per square kilometer, allowing enterprises to support a large number of devices in their infrastructure.
High-speed remote working
One of the biggest advantages of mobile devices in the business world is the ability for employees to work from anywhere.
With the higher data speeds that 5G deployments promise, remote work can be performed at faster rates, even when employees are not connected to a business network.
Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way businesses think about data and connectivity. These devices (televisions, refrigerators, etc.) generate tons of data, which institutions want to analyze and use to their advantage.
With the higher data speeds of 5G, organizations can access this data faster and accommodate all the devices at the IoT edge with greater capacity.
What about 5G in Brazil?
According to Humberto Bruno, head of technical advisory at the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel), the companies bidding will be those that will prioritize social development. In addition, the country must prepare itself structurally, requiring the installation of new antennas.
5G will revolutionize the business world and people’s lives. Being aware of and implementing this technology in your company can bring great benefits and even generate competitive advantages.
Much of business today is based on processing and extracting data and information, doing this faster can be the key to success.
