The 5G initiative is a technological leap that cannot be ignored. From processes as simple as loading the internet on smartphones, to the implementation of robots in supermarkets (stemming right here in the Tampa Bay area), it’s hard to deny that a monumental change is rapidly approaching.
All this excitement for the future stems from the development and implementation of the fifth generation – 5G – of wireless. We’ve heard other wireless options touted before – 4G, LTE; what makes 5G so different, important, and disruptive? 5G is an industry growing out of the quick pace of development, a solution to the “internet of things” - the connection of machines via wireless to quickly propagate information, enabling complex operations. It’s the backbone for advancement into the realm of self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, and other autonomous gadgets to improve society.
There’s a problem. The internet isn’t fast enough – at least, until 5G rolled around. Using millimeter wave spectrums – extremely small wavelengths with high frequencies capable of carrying a lot of data – 5G is promising speeds of one-hundred times faster than 4G. Businesses and markets taking advantage of 5G will have distinct advantages over others. As for smaller businesses and those at home? The benefits are plentiful. The implementation of fifth generation wireless will result in unprecedented download speeds, bandwidth increases, and reduced latency (the time it takes for wireless communication).
The impacts of 5G are coming, and it will truly be a revolutionary jump. From our personal lives, to business, to national security, America needs to seize the opportunities of fifth generation networking.
