2019 saw the arrival of 5G: telco providers got their own frequency bands for setting up 5G networks. The next months will see investments and a race to cover wide areas of the European market with public 5G capabilities.
However, telco providers are not the only enterprises that see the value-add of top-notch mobile telephone networks. 5G networks can also be provided as private campus networks for production sites or as a means to effectively connect remote industry sites. They have the potential to revolutionise processes on enterprise campuses, e.g. for intralogistics, massive machine-to-machine communication for smart factories or the introduction of new capabilities like AR and VR.
All things considered 5G enables a bunch of new opportunities. The ever-increasing demand for network bandwidth, high application performance (from the cloud) and improved user experience will path the way to a broad adoption of 5G. It will be a game changer in the future markets.
Not every case needs 5G though. Sometimes the next generation WiFi, or the setup of a 4G, campus network might be the better solution today. Finding the right scenarios will be key in seeing the benefits of 5G and getting the maximum return on investment.
