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.
When you visit the doctor for your yearly check-up, would you rather:
Sit in a waiting room reading outdated magazines while strangers cough around you?
Virtually connect on your tablet and review your vital trends from a fitness tracking device?
If you chose A, you’re part of a shrinking minority.
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.
The networking field is changing fast. This year, several emerging technologies will fundamentally impact how businesses and their employees connect. The good news is that each technology also represents a solid opportunity to improve some aspect of how a company runs – from network efficiency all the way up to business models.
Touch — one of the 5 senses that humans are blessed to possess. And it’s the most important, in my opinion. Touch gives us a deeper understanding of the beings/things we are feeling, which cannot be fully experienced by sight, smell, hearing or taste.
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.
Our craving for data seems to increase every year, fueling the constant advancements in wireless technology. The latest is 5G, an abbreviation for the fifth-generation wireless systems, and it is set to transform VoIP for the better. Here are three ways it will do that.
2018 to date has been the year when 5G came out of the standards and into reality, with many trials throughout Asia Pacific (APAC). The learnings from these trials have shown us not only what services could be supported, but how 5G should be deployed and what the likely investments will be required for a commercial launch.
Voice over IP (VoIP) phone systems are over two decades old, and still going strong. That’s because it provides businesses with unparalleled mobility. What’s more, VoIP developers are constantly improving the technology, which means we can expect some exciting new trends for telecommunications in 2018. Here are just a few of them.
Somewhat lost in the middle of a pretty newsworthy couple of weeks is some technology news that people really ought to be paying attention to. Last week, the FCC issued a Notice of Inquiry as part of a regular assessment of broadband penetration in the US. In the notice, the FCC led by Ajit Pai asked for public comments on, among other things, whether mobile broadband is a suitable replacement for fixed Internet connectivity.
