5G is revealed as a key element to boost the progress of the digital economy and the connected transformation. In fact, this technology is already managing to connect all kinds of devices with people from all over the world, with its energy consumption being much lower than that of 4G. Although this fifth generation of mobile telecommunications has obvious benefits, it still suffers from insufficient implementation. However, if we manage to materialize concrete solutions for companies undergoing digital transformation, we will see how 5G achieves a sustainable and productive transition.
The need for powerful mobile data transfer continues to grow. 5G can deliver blazing-fast connection speeds and massive bandwidth to drive business efficiency and innovation. Only with a widespread deployment of 5G on a large scale can we make the development of such useful technologies as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Extended Reality (XR) and the Internet of Things (IoT) a reality. The same happens with its ultra-low latency, thanks to which remote surgeries and autonomous cars can be carried out. Particularly interesting is the symbiosis of 5G with edge computing technology. Not in vain, their joint action will promote innovation at a global level. The same happens with home automation or the provision of public services, since all economic sectors can take advantage of the possibilities that state-of-the-art connectivity brings with it.
A Sustainable Transition
It is clear that 5G will play a very important role when it comes to environmental sustainability. Moreover, its use has been shown to lead to significant savings in energy bills, emissions and waste. It is estimated that in 2030 the use of 5G connectivity will reduce global emissions by 15%. Likewise, it will reduce energy consumption by 90% and extend the life of batteries in IoT devices by up to 10 years. Every day we find specific applications of sustainability from 5G. Such is morthe case of the resolution of energy supply problems by IoT smart networks or the remote tasks of control and analysis of the agricultural industry.
Now Is The Time
The advantages of implementing sustainable 5G infrastructures are obvious, but building them is not easy. Certainly, it is a very ambitious project that requires considerable public and private support. Despite the high costs involved in the implementation of 5G infrastructures, it is obvious that they are essential to lay the foundations for the economy of the future. You just have to look at the economic revolution that 4G brought with it: let’s imagine that evolution raised to the nth power. The range of possibilities is practically infinite! At this point, initiatives such as the Digital Connectivity Fund promoted by the EU are particularly promising. With it, it is expected to speed up the materialization of 5G. In short, 5G is vital to taking global economies to the next level. However, we must all work together to make this technology materialize in our lives. After all, modern societies can become much more prosperous and competitive with the right tools. Ready to do your part?
