5G is just around the corner
After the introduction of 4G (LTE), it was only a matter of time until the next step forward was taken. We are a blink of an eye away from living the 5G reality and this change is far more significant than a mere upgrade in speed, quality or price. The extremely low latency makes it possible that all sorts of devices communicate with each other over the same standard, including critical applications that require very fast responsiveness! At first glance, this new possibility will bring new challenges to businesses - however, it also creates a ton of opportunities for new revenue streams for mobile network operators (MNOs).
Up until now, 4G (LTE) including LTE Advanced and LTE Advanced Pro are the most successful communication standards around the world. 44% of all subscriptions worldwide are based on one of the 4G variants according to GSA. And this market penetration happened in record time. Now, a new major update in technology is just around the corner: 5G. It improves the communication speed, reduces the latency and allows more users to be online at the same time. Also, it allows for new use cases in the fields of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and much more. In summary, it is better, faster, cheaper – however, there is more! The specifications for 5G were written with the Internet of Things (IoT) in mind, allowing the connection of billions of smart connected devices for the very first time within an integrated specification. In this regard, 5G will enable the creation of lots of new use cases leading to new and desired revenue streams for the MNOs. But also, new challenges will arise – the most urgent one being security! IoT devices such as smart meters, smart sensors or actuators will probably not be designed with having security aspects at the top of the mind. This puts the integrity, confidentiality and originality of the communicated data at risk. Therefore, security aspects should be the priority of any decisions made! And the first commercial deployments are already happening: be prepared!
