Picture this: You’re at a stadium watching your favorite musician perform, or maybe your team just clinched a spot in the playoffs. Along with everyone else in the packed stadium, you want to be one of the first to share the news on social media with a mobile video or selfie. With so many others wanting to do the same at the exact same time, it may take a little longer. 5G will remedy that challenge, and a thousand other things we want, and need, our mobile devices to do.
5G, the next generation of wireless technology, holds the keys to a fully connected mobile life—faster speeds, lower latency and connected everything. Businesses and consumers will reap a host of benefits including driving smart cars, working in connected offices, living in smart cities and homes, more advanced and connected healthcare technology and more efficient industrial machinery. And yes, this means consistently fast speeds in highly dense environments, like that shoulder-to-shoulder sports stadium where you want to share the moment quickly.
To make these consumer benefits a reality, wireless companies need to invest in infrastructure, like small cells, so that they help create the ultra-dense networks that 5G relies on for all of these devices to communicate. As industry leaders in 4G, U.S. companies must make this investment to keep competitive in the rapidly evolving wireless industry.
Despite progress and research, suppliers are still facing challenges on the road to 5G, like the complex small cell citing process. Have you explored the challenges and opportunities that come with 5G? Does your business have a plan to adapt to network changes and remain competitive?
