Make no mistake about it 5G is a game changer, 5G will open up even more possibilities to change how we work thanks to higher speeds, increased reliability and security. 5G will be a constantly developing network of networks encompassing a broader range of devices than merely mobile phones – commonly referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT).
IoT is s a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and have the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
Any smart devices that your business chooses to invest in will be able to continually and efficiently talk to each other over a 5G network. Using 5G will create considerable amounts of data that, if used correctly with a data first strategy, will enable businesses to make better and more timely decisions.
In a 5G-capable environment, businesses will be able to offer experiences (e.g. changing the interior of a car you are purchasing via VR) that will have the potential to improve the customers sales journey and boost the chance of converting a potential customer.
VR needs very high speeds of connectivity to be able to work most efficiently, which can definitely be offered by 5G. The roll out of 5G will bring wireless internet to almost everything, it will offer more ways to consume the internet instead of cables connecting your business with the internet. There will not be a wired system, and you can work with a broader bandwidth enabling a constant virtual world to be born.
The development of applications will change with 5G. No longer will the lack of bandwidth hinder prospective ideas for new apps. More untapped creations and applications will become reality because 5G will help them with the speed they require to run consistently.
5G deployment will be a gradual process so all new IT project should ensure systems can transition to 5G as it becomes more widely available. Businesses need to be prepared for a new relationship with their telecom’s providers and managed service providers. Managed service providers will play a much more strategic role for businesses in the future working with businesses to understand and meet their needs.
5G won’t happen overnight but with the advantages it brings it will help transform industries and create new ones. For more information about 5G and how we can help with the gradual introduction of it into your company with Vodafone please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
