To compete today, you need to transform your operations urgently. You cannot rely on existing wireless networks that just are not up to the task. You need industrial-grade private wireless: a dedicated LTE/4.9G network that offers the predictable performance, massive coverage, and capacity, and built-in security and mobility of 4.9G right now – and a simple evolution into 5G next.
For your business to be agile and responsive to shifting markets and demanding customers, you need to digitally connect all your critical operations in real time, across your business. You need wireless, low-latency connectivity that is utterly reliable, secure and covers every inch of your operations, no matter how fast the parts are moving.
Our Private Wireless solution is based on the latest evolution of LTE or 4.9G, used for nearly a decade in mobile networks and now available and affordable for private networks. It is as easy to install as a Wi-Fi network, as robust and capable as ethernet and is also available in the industry’s first 5G standalone version for trial networks. It will make your most ambitious Industry 4.0 dreams come true now and prepare your business for whatever comes next.
Few doubt the incredible potential of 5G. It is set to unleash the power of digital across multiple sectors, making factories, warehouses, workplaces, hospitals, and homes more efficient, transportation faster and more convenient, and cities smarter.
5G provides the capability to support billions of connected devices transmitting huge volumes of data. Autonomous vehicles, manufacturing, transport, healthcare and many other sectors and activities will depend upon instant data transfer. At the same time, we are seeing the emergence of edge computing, which is moving processing power ever closer to the user, delivering the benefits of speed and latency to applications we will likely come to rely on.
On current wireless networks, most data are moved to central data centres to be processed, which slows down the process. And while today most applications being used are not really impacted, with the advent of emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles, any delay in the AI being used could be problematic. Stepping into the future to find the economic benefits is key.
The potential to dramatically improve bandwidth and lower latency, delivering the ‘everywhere, anytime’ communications, the world has been promised is here with the combination of 5G and edge computing. Gartner research* shows the proportion of enterprise-generated data processed outside a ‘traditional’ centralized data centre or cloud will leap from 10 percent in 2018 to 75 percent by 2025. This is an exciting prediction showcasing the benefits of the low latency of edge computing, and the lightning speed of 5G that makes 5G and edge computing one of the most powerful tools to invest in.
