What is 5G?
5G is the fifth generation of wireless communication technologies supporting cellular data network. It is the next generation of mobile broadband that will eventually replace your 4G LTE connection. 5G communications requires the use of communication devices designed to support the technology and the spectrum is divided into low-band, mid-band and high-band.
It will change the time it takes devices to communicate with wireless networks and support billions of devices with almost no latency, at speeds up to 20 times faster than 4G. The antennas of 5G are said to consume less power, making protocol better for connecting small, battery powered Internet of Things (IoT) devices. This communication technology will bring new capabilities that will create opportunities for people, businesses and society.
5G latency will be faster than human visual processing, making it possible to control devices remotely in near-real time. Human reaction speed will become the limiting factor for remote applications that use 5G and IoT—and many new applications will involve machine-to-machine communication that isn’t limited by how quickly humans can respond.
5G will deliver up to 1,000x more capacity than 4G, creating fertile ground for IoT development. 5G and IoT are a perfect match, set to redefine how wireless networks—and the internet as a whole—are used. With capacity for hundreds or thousands of devices seamlessly communicating, new applications and use cases for cities, factories, farms, schools, and homes will flourish.
5G Transformation strategy
5G is a technological evolution that will bridge our physical, virtual and social worlds. This transition into the programmable world will bring huge opportunities for operators to tap in to. At the same time, it represents a fundamental change to the business environment and the ways we do business. Our services experts are ready to turn the 5G technical concepts into a real business.
Revenue transformation: Fast time-to-market with new 5G use cases is key to quickly react upon new market needs, exploit innovator advantages or occupy market niches by creating true business solutions for enterprise customers. This requires speedy access to the vertical service provider and application ecosystem in conjunction with a sustainable business model that allows risk sharing.
Operations transformation: 5G is changing the way how services and networks are operated since Telcos need to exactly match network resources with the diverse and stringent requirements of different industries on a massive scale. They also need to keep TCO flat despite accelerating service and network dynamics: Operate 1000s of business slices in parallel, each defined by about 50 parameters, each with distinct SLAs, changes on the fly every minute, at virtual Zero incremental costs.
Digital Design and Deployment
Synnect services differentiation lies in working with you driven by your business outcomes. Our Digital design, for example, can help with accurate real-world modeling which is specifically tuned towards performance demands of the 5G use cases. The use cases vary in terms of the capacity, coverage, throughput, and latency required, making the design process highly complex.
