Gartner estimates that fewer than 45% of communication service providers worldwide will launch a 5G network by 2025.
Many companies still rely on fixed Ethernet networks for connectivity, supported by Wi-Fi for wireless access. Wi-Fi will continue being a critical communications technology for enterprises. However, as they become more dependent on automation and IoT and data develops into a vital asset, legacy Wi-Fi limitations become an issue.
As 5G continues a gradual rollout, LTE network development and deployment are moving forward. Recent research and investments in 5G networks have fed directly into several LTE network enhancements, including network slicing. LTE-A Pro is already designated as a 5G technology. The existing LTE Core and the new 5G Core will continue supporting mobile IoT’s evolution.
In our white paper, “Supporting Secure, Flexible, DataCentric Applications with Private LTE,” you will learn how private LTE:
- Supports a secure, cost-effective digital transformation.
- Complements Wi-Fi as companies evolve to 5G.
