Advantages of 5G
(1) Speed
5g has a theoretical speed of up to 20 Gbps, and its data rate is several orders of magnitude higher than 4G and 4G LTE. The actual speed that enterprises can achieve depends on a variety of factors, including the proximity to communication towers, the technical complexity of communication operators themselves, and whether network components have been designed to support Gigabit performance. In other words, 5g will enable enterprises to use services that cannot be provided by the original standards, such as automation and advanced video conferencing functions. 5g not only provides higher speed, but also provides what may be more important: low latency.
(2) Low delay
According to some experiments, 5g significantly reduces the time required for network devices to respond to commands (usually less than 5 milliseconds). Regardless of location, applications and services will work in the same way, eliminating delays that affect real-time communication.
(3) Capacity
5g supports connecting much more devices than 4G at the same time, which is estimated to be even as high as 100 times. Therefore, enterprises no longer need to evaluate their cellular and Wi Fi wireless strategies as one or more proposals. With 5g, enterprises can switch between cellular and Wi Fi connections as needed without worrying about the impact of performance or the limited accessibility of mobile broadband, especially in densely populated environments such as Manhattan and other major urban areas.
(4) New generation services based on artificial intelligence and machine learning
5g will promote the rise of a new generation of interactive services based on artificial intelligence and machine learning. For example, video conferencing with augmented reality or virtual reality can simulate the environment and help enterprise executives make better project decisions. Automation will enable enterprises to rely on applications and services that are more responsive and predictive than they are today.
(5) Rethinking the Internet
5g will become the driving force leading enterprises to rethink the network. Branches of enterprises can use 5g as the main connection medium and adopt Internet services provided by multiple communication operators through SIM cards. Whether you work centrally in the enterprise or remotely from home, you can take advantage of additional automation and security functions. Because 5g compatible components can quickly process and respond to requests, reducing the need for data center backhaul, edge computing will become more important.


Disadvantages of 5G
(1) Security
5g transmission security algorithm is more comprehensive than the algorithm supported by 4G standard, but enterprises may encounter other network security problems. As network attackers try to exploit vulnerabilities, a large number of IOT devices and components connected to 5g network will greatly increase the threat faced by enterprises. 5g devices themselves may also attract their attention because the chips and other components designed to drive these devices may be infected with malware by network attackers. Enterprises also need to carefully weigh the technology that their 5g networks use network slicing (a technology that creates a virtual network to host dedicated applications or services). Vulnerabilities in any part of the infrastructure of communication operators may cause serious security problems in the whole network. For enterprises with low risk tolerance, dedicated 5g network may be the best choice.
(2) Capex / OPEX
In order to fully enjoy the benefits of 5g, enterprises must upgrade and replace network components and adopt processors that support higher speed and performance indicators. It is expected that communication manufacturers will launch 5g compatible devices early next year, but enterprises will have to strive to find ways to maximize 5g investment, because most of their network infrastructure still depends on traditional devices. Its price will be a key consideration because the pricing of operators and equipment is still changing.
(3) Uneven coverage
Although communication operators continue to invest in 5g, 5g will not be covered in many parts of the United States for a long time. Enterprises with offices in rural areas may be particularly vulnerable to 5g coverage gaps and will have to rely on a combination of traditional network connectivity technologies. Therefore, those enterprises that cannot access 5g may be forced to wait for a period of time before communication operators can provide 5g services in their region, which may be affected by the competition of other operators.
(4) Line of sight / penetration problems
5g high-frequency signals are more likely to be blocked by objects, so ensuring the coverage of enterprise offices and factories is always a problem. Enterprises may have to redesign and build some facilities to ensure adequate services or build supplementary radio spectrum networks (such as those based on citizen broadband radio service spectrum), which will enable them to expand the coverage and capacity of 5g networks.
(5) Hype factors
Operators and suppliers claim that many enterprises may be overwhelmed by how 5g will affect their operations. They have to spend a lot of time fully understanding how they intend to use 5g to get the maximum return and how to prove the required return on investment (ROI). 5g is different from other technologies initially driven by enterprises and then adopted by consumers. When 5g is adopted, the wide adoption of enterprises will be postponed until 5g compatible devices are more widely used, and the real 5g services are provided by operators. The relevance of 5g will only appear when this standard (such as coverage, price points and supported devices) is ubiquitous.
