Abstract

Companies are racing to have a wireless enhanced broadband, massive machine type and Ultra-reliable, low latency networks. And countries are competing to be the first to deploy fully functional, nationwide 5G. That’s because the benefits of the new technology are expected to fuel transformative new technologies, not just for consumers but also for businesses, infrastructure and industrial applications.

Benefits of 5G?

Much of the hype around 5G has to do with speed. But there are other perks, too. 5G will have greater bandwidth, meaning it can handle many more connected devices than previous networks. But this is not so helpful in a industrial application.
  • Reduce latency — the time it takes for a endpoint/machine to make a request from a server and get a response. And it will make between machines deterministic, faster and easier.
  • Network slicing –this enables operators to provide dedicated virtual networks with customer-specific functionality 
  • Distributed Cloud – this enables placing of workloads closer to the edge for better QoS such as latency;
  • Realtime machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) – analytics will be important in making the networks self-optimizing to secure SLA fulfillment for services.
