Is 5G coming soon?

 

Telstra reveals that we could have a new 5G network running as early as the first half of this year and Australians could be one of the first in the world to have this privilege.  They already have a number of smartphone manufacturers bringing their 5G compatible phones exclusively to their 5G network.

This could mean that we can download a 4K movie on our smartphones in only a few seconds! Not only will data transfer will be at hyper speeds, but consumers will be able to enjoy high quality streaming and gaming. Also, there will be reduced latency in the transfer of data which will support remote heart surgery to be conducted through a robotic arm.

Automation of physical assets such as tractors, irrigation systems and even livestock will become more common as they can be connected to a network with sensor technology.

The benefits are huge!

The “cloud” has become a household name in the past couple of years, but what does it actually mean and what can it do for your business and home?

Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead.
