5G for Business

5G is right around the corner. It's important to be prepared.

 As with any disruptive technology, IT Leaders and their employees need to understand what 5G is, how it works, and when and where it will be available. 

1G was analog cellular. 2G technologies, such as GSM, and TDMA, were the first generation of digital cellular technologies. 3G technologies, such as HSPA, and UMTS, brought speeds from 200kbps to a few megabits per second. 4G technologies, such as LTE, was the next leap forward, setting the foundation for 5G.

5G is the fast-approaching fifth-generation wireless broadband technology, scaling up to hundreds of megabits and even gigabit-level speeds and is expected to be 10-100 times faster than 4G. 5G will not replace 4G, in fact, they will work together for the foreseeable future.   

5G brings three new aspects to the table: 

  1. Greater speed (to move more data)
  2. Lower latency (to be more responsive), and
  3. The ability to connect a lot more devices at once (for sensors and smart devices).

Internet of Things (IoT)

 IoT means taking all the things in the world and connecting them to the internet, and is at the forefront of enterprises. Trying to maneuver the landscape ahead may be tough and for some, the road will be a bumpy ride if you do not have strategies in place to operate within this robust technological world of connectivity.

Why would we even want to connect everything to the internet? IoT is intended to accomplish a task, perform work that may be dangerous, monitor or track something and just make our lives better!
