5G promises a massive increase in bandwidth, faster speeds and lower latency, but enterprises will need to bolster their edge infrastructure strategy to support it.

The rollout of 5G presents an enormous opportunity for industrial organizations to innovate beyond what can be supported by today’s 4G network, and deliver unprecedented value to employees and customers. As the number of connected devices continues to grow, and expectations for rapid data transmission continue to rise, industrial enterprises will need to limit the distance between the data source and the end user.
For the city of Houston, and ultimately the rest of the country, 5G will radically change the way consumers and businesses access the internet, which means IT delivery methods will shift toward systems that provide increased bandwidth and performance, and local compute and network power.
5G endeavors to have the capacity to handle the volume of data transport that will support emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning. Enterprises can prepare by leveraging edge computing to deliver significantly lower latency.

5G has the power to transform emerging technology like augmented reality, artificial intelligence, self-driving cars and the IoT into integral parts of day-to-day life. While most industry professionals likely agree that 5G is the “next big thing,” there’s a lot less agreement on when we might expect it to reach the mainstream.
