Enterprise 5G Solutions are Now Available for Business & Government
Hughes is the first MSP to bring 5G solutions to the U.S. market.
Enterprise 5G powers significant new capabilities on both core networks and end-devices. Some examples include highly accurate location sensing to allow industrial or vehicular control of mobile platforms like drone management or car telematics; private networking bubbles around a facility to enable more complete and lower-cost coverage for wireless devices; and ubiquitous coverage for smart IoT devices. These capabilities are made possible by advanced software-defined infrastructure and an emphasis on mobile edge-based technologies built into 5G networks.
5G is not a single monolithic technology. It's made up of core and edge services delivered by three different radio bands: a low-band designed for broad coverage areas, a mid-band that delivers higher capacity, and a high-band that provides the gigabit high-capacity the 5G ads talk about but very limited propagation and it is significantly impeded by physical obstructions.
Each layer is best suited for certain applications.
In metropolitan areas where the high-band is available, the gigabit capacity enables a host of new capabilities including advanced AI vision recognition and real-time control of drones and robots.
The mid-band offers 100 Mbps – 400 Mbps speeds and allows for enterprise 5G to replace/augment wired connectivity for most organizations and the deployment of Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality devices.
The low-band, with 30 Mbps – 250 Mbps, is still a large step forward for wireless connectivity and will support primary network service for many enterprises who may need it and keep vehicle fleets or logistics tracking devices connected while on the move.
While 5G doesn’t solve all current problems facing enterprises today, the greater throughput offered by all of the bands can benefit many enterprise users. Plus, long-term adoption is inevitable as technology continues to evolve and older protocols become less supported. And this is just the beginning, with new enterprise 5G capabilities like network slicing, private wireless networks, and location-sensing coming in the next 12 – 24 months. Fortunately, there are a host of steps you can take now to position your organization to take advantage of all 5G has to offer.
Hughes is Carrier Agnostic and All About Connectivity
You can count on Hughes to get you the best service at each and every U.S. location. Hughes is a certified Cradlepoint Elite Partner for Enterprise 5G, and offers 5G plans from each of the major U.S. carriers. For each band in the 5G network, carriers determine their service coverage and capacity. Essential to enterprise 5G is the need for all layers to co-exist. Because Hughes is all about connectivity and is both transport and carrier agnostic (partnering with major carriers!), you can be confident that Hughes has your 5G needs covered! Here's how the carriers have approached enterprise 5G in the U.S.
