Among the more than 108,000 attendees at Mobile World Congress 2017, it wasn’t difficult to find the most buzz-worthy topic. At the forefront was 5G — what it means for people and enterprises today, and what it can potentially do for mobile networks within the next few years.
5G is rapidly climbing the hype cycle toward the peak of inflated expectations. Qualcomm has even claimed it could be as “transformative as electricity.” Officially named by the 3GPP global standards organization, 5G is supposed to combine all the aspects of 4G with massive mobile data, 3G with voice and video, 2G for M2M and IoT deployments, and WiFi spectrum, all with zero latency and gigabit throughput to become the next-generation WAN.
Watch this three minute video with Cradlepoint Product Manager, David Rush, to identify the hype around 5G, what 5G means today, and what it will be by 2019.

ICON can help you protect your assets and prevent business disruptions by monitoring and alerting your facilities. Insurance can help replace some items after the fact, but that doesn’t cover the downtime, lost revenue or the frustration of getting your business back online. Even small disruptions in business continuity, from a blown fuse to a vandal on premises, from a water leak to a door being opened after hours, can snowball into a large disruptive force if left unchecked. Situational awareness from ICON Cloud Solutions gives you the time to react and respond…time that is critical in dealing with a potentially expensive development.
