5G Mobile Technology & Your Business


5G technology offers more than just mobile calls or faster internet browsing. 5G delivers increased productivity and better security.

By 2035 5G technology could underpin up to £9.3 trillion worth of goods and services in industries such as:

  • retail
  • healthcare
  • education
  • transportation
  • entertainment

What Is 5G?

The “G” in 5G stands for “generation”. It will dramatically increase the speed at which data is transferred across the network and will greatly expand the use of internet connected devices.

More Speed

5G will have an increased data rate of up to 10 gigabits per second faster than many home broadband services. This means a full HD movie can be downloaded in a matter of seconds. 5G will give wireless broadband the power it needs to support the ever-increasing number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices that will shortly reach the workplace. Businesses will benefit from a 90% reduction in network energy usage and up to 10-year battery life for IoT devices built for 5G.

5G will make businesses more efficient and powerful enough to do more work in less time with fewer resources, therefore saving costs and increasing revenue as a result.

Many businesses are already familiar with the concept of individual mobile working but with the additional capacity that 5G offers this could enable teams to be setup remotely very quickly.

High quality remote video conferencing and surveillance solutions have traditionally relied on hard wired solutions but are now a possibility with 5G.

5G technology will be one of the main disruptive forces for businesses in the UK going forward. In an already connected world, 5G will not only stimulate start-ups and small businesses but will open the door to the creation of new products and services previously unimaginable.

Most importantly, we are looking at a technology that will create a level playing field for SME’s when doing battle with enterprise competitors in the marketplace.  The future that 5G promises is here and must be taken advantage of.

We recommend seeking out local service providers for the best outcome.
