You may be familiar with the terms 3G & 4G, 5G is the next generation of cellular internet connection. Now that Australia is upgrading their communication networks, the introduction of 5G will roll out as an option when upgrading your cellular plans. 5G will be faster, more responsive and offer a higher capacity, meaning a smoother internet experience for your business.
Understanding what 5G will mean for your business is critical, as your SMB will benefit most from these new upgrades. Ultimately, these upgrades will mean you have a more seamless connection to your online documents in those difficult-to-connect places. Given you have a cloud communications system within your business, you will now be able to connect anywhere at anytime.
Here we dive into the top 3 reasons why 5G will impact your business and why you should consider it when upgrading your business’ mobile plan in 2020:
1. Faster Connection Speeds
Faster connection speeds means more efficient communication. 5G is expected to be 100 times faster than the current 4G. This means your connected devices will download larger files faster, getting them in front of the right people, quicker. Your uploads and streaming will be high-speed with 5G also.
2. More Capacity
More capacity means better performance in crowded places, making streaming live from a football game, an airport or large function more effective and seamless. 5G will improve it’s coverage dramatically, ensuring you can stay in contact when you need to the most. Networks will also be able to cope better with the use of multiple high-demand applications operating at once, which is typical in a meeting environment. This will streamline the connection between your devices and with the introduction of virtual reality experiences happening in modern businesses, your business will now be able to expand with the times.
3. Less Latency
Increased responsiveness for connected devices means less delays when making business transfers on the go. We will see much less delay when sharing large documents. In comparison to 4G, latency is typically around 40-50 milliseconds, with 5G latency should be at 1 millisecond (which is undetectable to the user).
Ultimately, the transition to 5G will be a seamless experience and with the right connection for your business and location, you will reap the benefits of 5G, faster.
