Standing on the threshold of the data decade, it is overwhelming to see how far we have come and to realize the ways that made this journey possible. With technology evolutions in the bygone decade, we are more informed, more connected and are better equipped in the new decade to steer the future of digital economy towards an intelligent economy at a pace not imagined before. All credits to 5G – the fifth generation of wireless telecommunications technology!
With 5G enabling hyper-fast wireless connectivity, virtually eliminating network delays, cities will become more connected and flying autonomous drones will become the new reality. Virtual pets will awe your children in the living rooms as much as their friends.
The speedy 5G way into bigger and brilliant possibilities
We are already witnessing a rising demand for agile and flexible services and solutions. Intelligence around the edge-core-cloud is dictating the inclusion of storage, compute and other embedded capabilities.
By now, it is quite evident that 5G technology will spawn new and innovative business models. The technology will make way for more connected devices and more data generation, which also includes faster data speed and adoption of intelligent IoT. In fact, Gartner had predicted that the worldwide 5G wireless network infrastructure revenue in 2020 will reach $4.2 billion, which would be an 89% increase from 2019 revenue of $2.2 billion1.
Some of the things that we may expect are – smart factories with connected devices and IoT, enhanced AR and VR experience with super-speed and bandwidth, autonomous vehicles, smart cities, and edge computing with high-speed and low latency data transmission.
Though the shift to this next level of connectivity will open new opportunities for every industry, yet enterprises need to be ready to overhaul their infrastructure.
Dell EMC – Ready to accelerate the 5G momentum
At Dell EMC, we understand technology shifts and we are very bullish about our future in artificial intelligence and data-driven solutions. For us, 5G is more than just a telecom revolution.
