Featured In The Wall Street Journal: “People of 5G”

5G will open up a world of opportunities that can revolutionize how we work and live. It will impact everything from mobile gaming to machine-to-machine communications to self-driving cars. Understanding what’s coming and how to best prepare for it is key. In 2022, there will be an estimated 122 million 5G customers in North America. Here are a few things found on the web about how businesses can leverage 5G this year.

5G DEVICES FOR ALL EMPLOYEES

Companies should migrate their entire workforces to 5G-powered smartphones, ensuring employees can take full advantage of the modern communication environment and new productivity applications.

 

ENABLE REMOTE WORK CONNECTIVITY WITH 5G TECHNOLOGY 

Making 5G mobile hotspots and fixed wireless available to employees can enhance productivity for remote workers.

COVID 19 moved over 40% of the American workforce to work remotely, and it is estimated that approximately 40 million of these employees will remain fully remote in 2025.

 

5G-ENABLED PCs FOR MOBILE WORKERS

A growing number of mobile professionals don’t have a traditional office — sales representatives, business consultants, or construction professionals. It is estimated 60% of the total US workforce, almost 100 million Americans, are expected to be deskless by 2024.

Accordingly, cellular-enabled PCs in 2020 increased by over 65%. By 2025, sales of 5G-enabled PCs are expected to be over 70% of the market, making 5G connectivity critical.

 

5G WIRELESS OFFICES

5G will provide small and mid-size businesses with wireless internet instead of traditional wired broadband. This is significant for small businesses, especially in rural areas where internet speed and capacity are issues, especially versus more urban-based competition.

 

PRIVATE 5G NETWORKS

A private 5G network gives companies the ability to optimize the benefits of 5G and customize the network according to specific organizational needs and locations. One hurdle to building a private network has been the cost, but Amazon recently rolled out a private 5G network option that has no upfront cost for equipment, and the cost is based upon an on-demand use model.
