The next generation of wireless communications, 5G, is being hyped as a technology that will dramatically change people’s lives. 5G will be designed to provide very high speeds, massive bandwidth, and super low latency. 5G has the potential to dramatically shift the way first responders interact with each other, citizens, and how they react during emergencies.
We will see use cases that could help first responders be more protected and successful. Some of these use cases are available today, some are improved by newly introduced Gigabit-Class LTE, while some will only be possible with 5G.
For example, video conferencing is an application in common use today, but with the higher definition and better stability delivered by 5G, video communications will transcend today’s norm and find itself in parked patrol cars or fire trucks and go along anywhere the road may take them.
Join Roger Billings, Global Solutions Architect at Cradlepoint, and take a deeper look into possible use cases that will likely be the most impactful and pervasive for first responders.
