5G is here. Is your building prepared to handle the transition?
The widespread adoption of 5G is impacting more than just connectivity and cell phone signals – it’s also having a massive effect on CRE’s physical spaces. Commercial buildings and the businesses they host need to be prepared if they’re going to make the most of the 5G revolution.
Here are 3 things to look out for as this new wave of wireless develops:
5G Requires a Boost in Tech Infrastructure
In order to keep up with the unprecedented data streaming and wireless capacities that 5G has to offer, buildings need to supply the necessary hardware. 5G needs cables, WiFi, satellites, sensors, and a ton of other digital tools to work at full throttle.
That means that buildings interested in harnessing the latent powers of 5G need to undergo a technological makeover. It’s high time for businesses to invest in boosting their tech infrastructure to prepare for maximized 5G compatibility.
As the industry stands today, many commercial properties aren’t ready to fully adopt 5G LTE. Resultantly, many commercial properties are hurrying to get current with the latest in technology to jump on the 5G trend as soon as possible.
When looking at newer developments, commercial buildings are being designed with the very best of 5G in mind. Newer buildings are being stocked with the cutting-edge of tech infrastructures so that they’ll be ready to take on 5G’s maximized potentials.
The Switch Will Be Gradual
Once your building is stocked full of all the required hardware features and is ready to take on all that 5G has to offer, businesses need to get ready to make the transition over from 4G.
Contrary to popular belief, 4G and 5G are compatible and can be used in tangent. In the past, a new generation of wireless has completely taken over the previous version – but that’s not the case here. The switch to 5G is a quantum leap into the future of technology. Thankfully, the world of tech is able to transition smoothly without too much of a crunch.
For the time being, 5G can be used in tangent with 4G as the system slowly improves to perfect the new module of connection.
All Businesses Can Benefit from Employing 5G
5G isn’t exclusively for global business giants. It’s for everyone.
Smaller businesses shouldn’t feel like they’re cut out of the 5G network or like it doesn’t offer anything for them. Contrarily, everyone can reap the benefits of 5G. It’s superior speed, data transmission, and streaming capacities can enhance anyone’s experience of using the internet.
5G LTE is improving the quality of business calls, video conferences, data storage and transmission, and more.
The experts are saying that 5G is going to provide a competitive advantage for small businesses all around the world as they’ll gain the cutting-edge tech tools that have been confined to the bigger companies around the globe.
Don’t hit ‘snooze’ on 5G. Businesses who take initiative to get a head start on preparing for 5G will be at the forefront of tech’s latest boom.
