5G is fast shifting from a hyped potential technology to real world delivery. It is widely accepted that 5G will be productised in 2021, which means that 2020 is when business use case evaluation should occur. This is a technology worth investing the time to review, as early adopters will be positioned to gain a competitive edge.
First business use cases on horizon
Australia’s two leading carriers already have a 5G footprint across major urban areas and consumer adoption will escalate when Apple deliver a 5G iPhone – expected in April 2020.
For Australian businesses, 5G will be an enabler for many emerging technologies through the delivery of increased speed and decreased latency. Telstra estimates a 50-100% improvement in speed for end users and a reduction in latency of 96%. In business-critical processes when every millisecond matters, delivering close to real time data will transform the decision-making of humans and machines.
