There are many use cases for 5G
technology. Here are just seven examples:
- Replacing Broadband with WiFi
5G in business makes it easier
than ever to access the internet from just about anywhere in the
world. For remote workers or anyone working from a mobile device,
setting up fixed wireless instead of broadband can make all the
difference in the world in terms of running a successful business.
This makes it easier to stay connected to company headquarters and
other distributed workers.
2. Supply Chain
Any business that’s required to
source and track equipment will benefit from the introduction of
5G. Today, many businesses deal with equipment that needs to be
tracked so that it can be accessed easily. 5G is a useful tool for
any field in which communication with far-flung suppliers is
crucial. It also offers greater security as well as the capability
to ingest, process, and store key data.
- Sensor-based Systems
Many businesses rely on sensors
in their operations. Manufacturing, agriculture, transportation,
and building maintenance all use sensors in order to monitor
workspaces for critical issues.
Using sensors necessitates a
massive intake of data, and requires a way to store and process all
of that data. At the same time, it necessitates effectively
protecting that data. Working with a 5G network gives businesses
access to the speed and reliability needed to process the data
collected by sensors.
Edge computing is among the
most exciting new technologies available today.
5G’s abundant bandwidth makes
edge computing an achievable reality for workers both at company
headquarters and around the world. By providing speed, reliability,
and constant connectivity, 5G makes it easy for teams to access
- Augmented Reality
Applications like augmented
reality are becoming crucial for more and more retailers as
shopping online becomes the norm. Augmented reality also has
applications for policing, environmental workers, and any other
field where drones or robots can be deployed to carry out a
project. With reliable 5G internet access, remote workers can
manage such robots or drones from a distance.
In order to function at their
best, self-driving cars need to remain constantly connected to a
network. This is crucial so they can both take in data about their
surroundings and transmit information about their
5G connectivity makes it
possible for autonomous vehicles to remain online constantly — no
matter where they are. Real-time data-driven vehicle management
will be possible and eventually, these vehicles can reach true
The “smart city” — a metropolis
in which everything from streetlights to buses can be connected and
managed — may seem like a dream today. But they are fast becoming a
reality, and 5G is well-suited to accelerate that.
The constant connectivity
offered by 5G can help make the smart city a reality. Some public
safety software has already
to help make policing more
effective. It is also projected to help cope with the increased
bandwidth required by the growing demands of video and camera
surveillance. It's also expected to boost facial recognition
technology that may be deployed to help identify bad
