The new standard's four key network improvements will have far-reaching impacts on how we do these three things at home or elsewhere around town - that's not even counting all those other benefits!

The four key improvements from the 5G network are:

  1. Speed
  2. Low Latency
  3. Enhanced capacity
  4. Increased bandwidth

I particularly find the low latency, enhanced capacity, and increased bandwidth are interesting. For those who still have no idea how 5G technology works benefits businesses, check out these three benefits of 5G technology for businesses.

Benefit #1 - 5G's low latency will allow it to control devices remotely in real-time.

5G will allow us to control devices remotely in near-real-time, and its low latency makes it an ideal network for use with IoT.

As human reaction speed becomes the limiting factor for many new remote applications that involve machine communication on a 5G network, the technologies' ability is about more than just convenience - they're crucial tools used by professionals every day.

Certain industries like agriculture, manufacturing, stock trading, auto, and gaming will benefit from low latency. Low latency for business will translate to improved productivity or even enhance the safety of the employees and customers.

Benefit #2 - Enhanced capacity with 5G will not limit businesses to the number of devices that could be on the network

It is estimated that 5G network can support one million connected devices per 0.38 square miles, while 4G supports around 2,000 machines.

With 5G, enterprise networks can house many devices in their IT infrastructure. This means that companies will offer more services at once and provide faster connections for customers than ever before.

It is a game-changer for many businesses relying on thousands of sensors. Any company depending on added network capacity will impact nearly everyone.

Benefit #3: Increased bandwidth and faster speeds will allow businesses to transmit more data faster and more efficiently.

The combination of increased speed and network capacity with 5G networks will create the potential for larger amounts of data to be transmitted than was possible with 4G LTE networks. This will allow businesses to take advantage of new opportunities and improve their operations.

Imagine the possibilities for sports fans to participate in real-time, from any seat in their favorite stadium during the game.

With 5G connectivity and seamless streaming technology, it may soon become easier than ever before to live stream events or simultaneously view the players and immediately replay while you're in the stadium watching the game.

5G technology's use cases for businesses will continue to grow

As the network rolls out and gains popularity with consumers, the four key improvements of 5G technology will undoubtedly revolutionize how we interact with our surroundings and experience our world as we know it now.

Here are some of the expectations and use cases from 5G that I think will be interesting.

Big Data in AI, Automation, and IoT

5G will allow for advances in artificial intelligence, automation, and IoT, all about data collection. How a company handles this influx of information could make or break them, so analytics tools must be invested wisely.

Revolutionized Customer Experience

Intelligent, Automated Technologies will enhance business performance and revolutionize the customer experience. This will make things like remote healthcare, remote education, and home automation possible beyond today.

Corporate Training and Education on 5G Technology

5G education is a crucial step for businesses to take before fully enjoying the benefits of 5G technology. Companies should make sure they understand what 5G technology has in store for them, how it can benefit their business goals and customer experience, and drive growth.

In Summary

The 5G technologies that will be available today are merely a pale comparison to what's coming in the future. So companies need to strategize how they're going to use this new tech now and over time, but it might not all come together right away.

With all the benefits that 5G technology offers, it is easy to see why companies are starting to invest now.

It may not be easy to understand how valuable this new tech is now, but as soon as businesses get a glimpse of what's coming, they'll grasp just how important the future of connectivity is.
