4G LTE is becoming widely adopted throughout the enterprise. 60% of IT decision makers from more than 100 enterprises stated they were already deploying 4G LTE in a recent study. 4G LTE adoption is also driving an increase in wide-area network (WAN) flexibility, reliability, security and cost-effectiveness.
As the FIFA World Cup begins, around 3.2 billion people (half the eyes in the world) will be tuning in to watch the game take centre stage in Moscow. It’s a game of strategy, skill and stamina, with strict rules and high stakes for the players involved. But there are many lessons we take from what is seen on the football pitch.
5G has three primary use cases associated with it—enhanced mobile broadband, massive internet of things connectivity and ultra-reliable, low-latency communications for mission critical services. In the U.S. carriers are racing to commercialize fixed wireless 5G to deliver consumer home broadband services.
At the recent 5G North America Event in Austin, Texas, the fanfare about 5G was not surprising. However, what continues to surpass expectations is the level of eagerness for it among enterprises, the breadth of potential use cases, and the accelerated timelines for its arrival.
Thanks to the promise of the Internet of Things and the savings, efficiencies and insights connected devices can deliver governments, all eyes are on smart cities as of late. Many view IoT as the culmination of years of investments in high-speed networks, sensors and analytics.
First responders are out on the front line ready to face emergencies at all times. They are a vital component of communities, working to identify threats, carry out evacuations, and treat the injured to save lives. Emergency medical services treat 25 to 30 million patients per year.
In this article we will look at a practical application of 4G Wide Area Networks (WAN), examining how industrial service provider Bilfinger uses 4G WAN solutions to bring its short-term maintenance projects online quickly and without the need for expensive cable installation.
School buses help to reduce traffic, by keeping over 17 million cars off the road and prevent over 20 million tons of CO2 from being released each year. School districts are now making school buses even more valuable, by installing Wi-Fi on buses. This should help extend the reach of the classroom.
As the world edges closer to the reality of the fifth generation (5G) of wireless communications, a new age of product innovations is at the doorstep as wireless providers contend with the last remaining hurdles to a national rollout.
Cities are becoming smarter by producing greater public-sector efficiencies through sensors, IoT, LTE connectivity, and data analysis. The change of culture and technology is causing towns, cities, counties, and even entire states, to adapt to technologies that help lower costs.
