Unified communications are one of the main causes that will accelerate the arrival of the 5G network.
As we have already commented in some other article, the launch of the arrival of 5G is imminent and 2020 will be the key year of its consolidation.
With its imminent arrival, the industry is rubbing its hands. The 5G band will mark the opening of a new era and a vein both for unified communications and for new technologies in general.
The 5G Network, A New Generation
There is no clearly defined standard for the 5G network, but its speed is expected to be 10 times faster than current networks. With 5G the download speed will be no less than 10 GB per second in wireless connections!
Until now, network signals are broadcast from a mobile tower and at a great distance. Well, think that the infrastructure that arrives will totally change with the new 5G network.
With this new band, the signals will be much closer, smaller, and will spread in greater numbers. Therefore, these signals will be able to be broadcast shortly on home routers.
What Changes Will The 5G Network Bring Us In Unified Communications?
First of all, the ability to transmit data at breakneck speed. And this means that with the new 5G network:
Video conferencing will come much more optimized
We are aware that video conferencing is a very useful technology, but that optimal and complete experience has yet to be achieved.
The 4k and 8k are increasingly implemented, but they need more powerful networks for the video sequence to be a total success, and most likely 5G is the solution.
VoIP communications and solutions depend on the internet and a powerful web connection.
With the expectations of the 5G network and its speed, these types of connections will notice a great change.
Virtual and augmented reality
With the speed of the 5G network, VR and AR will become a more common technology among users.
Virtual reality is not something very widespread between work meetings. From now on, the deployment of 5G will allow us to unleash virtual reality, and for example, it will allow us to show and take a virtual tour of the office to our clients, potential clients, or partners.
In this context, virtual reality becomes a huge world of possibilities as a collaboration solution for different workspaces and in other collaborative contexts.
