It’s another exciting year for advances in technology, which means new ways to enhance your business. Here’s a look at what’s coming, so you can take advantage of the opportunities that the new year brings.
5G, the fifth generation of cellular wireless technology, will ultimately offer massive connection power and lightning-fast speeds that will enable transformation across virtually every industry. From healthcare and manufacturing to retail and finance, 5G stands ready to spur market growth and the global economy with waves of innovation.
Technology is changing rapidly and with that comes higher demands on your network while pushing bandwidth requirements to its limits.
As an example, let’s look at healthcare. Access to near-real-time data and the ability to make split-second decisions are critical in healthcare environments. 5G will ultimately offer reliability, extreme speeds, and low latency, which will in turn greatly improve file transfer time, which can help improve diagnostics time and optimize patient care. For example, if a clinic needs to send a large file to another facility for diagnostics, 5G will eventually enable the file to transfer much faster than before, and without hindering the clinic’s network connection. Faster file transfer means faster decision-making, and the healthcare facility can potentially see more patients in the same amount of time.
To thrive in this next industrial revolution, make sure you take steps to prepare to alter how your business operates. The first step is to understand the capabilities that 5G will ultimately have the power to unleash.
