Why WiFi 6 and 5G are different: Physics, economics, and human behavior

It is an exciting time in wireless networking. The two most-used wireless technologies in the world are getting an upgrade, and the changes could affect nearly every technology-using human on Earth.

Wi-Fi, or local wireless, is undergoing a major advance, to Wi-Fi 6. Cellular, or mobile networking, is getting upgraded to 5G. These improvements will open new opportunities for businesses and new capabilities for users.

The next big thing in wireless is almost here. 5G mobile technology will soon be available, bringing the promise of compelling new uses cases and capabilities to transform industrial IoT (IIoT). But how will 5G impact networking architecture for industrial environments? Our new white paper, Demystifying 5G in Industrial IoT, takes a deep dive into what you need to know.

Why edge computing is imperative in 5G networks
Previously, we looked at how service providers can make 5G a profitable business. A key part of this is also dependent upon service providers delivering distributed compute power as part of the 5G network itself by hosting thousands of mini data centers at the edge.

How service providers can make 5G a profitable business
5G is nearly here. Three carriers have launched commercial 5G services in South Korea, now offering the service to enterprises. The race is on to take advantage of lower latency, higher speeds, greater coverage and massive capacity increases in order to be more responsive, move data faster and connect more sensors and smart devices to the network.
