5G’s Influence on Annapolis Businesses

| July 29, 2022, 06:00 PM

As 5G mobile signals finally become widespread within Annapolis, they bring significant implications for the future of tech-heavy businesses. For the right company and with proper integration, 5G could generate immense work efficiency and access advantages. 5G isn’t a silver bullet, so interested businesses need to take a measured approach to leverage as much from this technology as possible.

What is 5G?

5G is the name given to the fifth generation of mobile network connectivity. This system can operate up to ten times the bandwidth of older 4G solutions, with reduced signal transmission time (latency). Even though the technology does have some weaknesses when compared with 4G, specifically in object penetration and travel distance, the general idea is that it can be more reliable and much faster.

Implications for Businesses

The first significant implication of 5G for companies that decide to adopt the technology is that security will become a bigger concern. This doesn’t have to be through complex avenues either, as explored by ExpressVPN. Unfortunately, many people still use passwords that include their names, phone numbers, or simple series of numbers such as “123456”. Since more time on the internet means more opportunities for bad actors to break in, better practices on this basic level are essential.

On a more positive front, greater potential for fast connections would also have profound effects on an employee’s ability to be productive while outside the office. Many people already own personal or work laptops, but slow connection speeds can mitigate the usefulness of these systems for remote work. Having 5G available all over Annapolis would open possibilities for even the most data-heavy jobs, such as media manipulation and database management.

Automation and AI analytics could also see advantages through 5G connectivity. AI pattern recognition tends to rely on crunching large volumes of data, which is a tremendous burden on slower-speed connections. 5G systems would streamline this issue, driving AI conclusions to faster and more accurate results.

In this way, speed advancements could also contribute to generating better environments for remote work. According to Apollo Technical, 16% of companies are fully remote, with 62% of workers aged 22 to 65 periodically working remotely. The improved Annapolis 5G infrastructure will facilitate this process and potentially lead to businesses taking the advantages of remote work more seriously.

Finally, 5G remote potential could also improve distance training and education. This would allow easier skill acquisition when out and about and could indirectly aid in growing the workforce. As noted by GlobeNewswire, the worldwide online education industry is expected to operate at a 13.8% CAGR from 2021 to 2027, and Annapolis could benefit from this expansion.

Even though it could take some time before Annapolis businesses fully update their infrastructure for 5G, such development is just a matter of time. With many advantages for improved connectivity, speed, business tools, and employee growth, 5G is a titan waiting in the wings. As the 2020s progress, it’s expected that many businesses within Annapolis’ borders will take advantage of this new connection tech, and it could play a crucial part in staying competitive in the evolving technological workplace.
