5G Can Help Transform Your Business.
Companies are perpetually trying to gain a few points of margin or introduce an innovative new product. But sometimes incremental advantage is more about figuring out how to attract and service customers in new and better ways. Many may look at 5G from a consumer perspective — simply as a way to improve download speeds for smartphones. The reality is that 5G holds far more opportunity for businesses than consumers. History has already shown how 4G LTE transformed companies and entire industries — 5G will be just as transformative.
Versatile High Performance
There has traditionally been a tradeoff between versatility and performance. Wireless WAN offers tremendous versatility but hasn't matched the throughput performance of fiber connections. 5G is mitigating that tradeoff by rivaling the performance of fiber but offering the versatility of wireless. Here are some of the use cases that promise to help organizations transform their products and services.
- Full traffic failover for larger sites
- A/R customer experience
- Wireless industrial operations
- Private LTE / 5G
- Autonomous service robots
- Massive IoT deployment
- All wireless for larger sites
- Contained autonomous driving
- Machine video recognition
- Mobile expert diagnosis/treatment
- Massive asset management
- Network slicing
Besides significantly better download and upload speeds, 5G offers much lower latency and new capabilities like network slicing and multi-access edge computing.
As an established market leader, Cradlepoint is known for providing exceptional wireless WAN connectivity. The 5G solution uses Cradlepoint’s proprietary wireless software and algorithms to establish and optimize wireless connections.
