5G and Wi-Fi 6, the next generation of mobile wireless technologies are here! But what does that mean? Where and how is 5G being deployed? What is Wi-Fi 6? Who’s on first? What’s on second?
There are a myriad of questions about the next generation of wireless connectivity, from what it will look like, to how it will be used, to the experiences it enables. The future of wireless connectivity with 5G and Wi-Fi 6 is much more than enhancing the consumer experience; it is poised to reshape industries. Unlike the previous generations of mobile technology that brought us voice, added data, shared multimedia, 5G’s true impact will be the scale at which it enables innovative new applications. Much of 5G will be invisible to the average consumer, working in the background, in factories and fields, in vehicles and sensors, in machines and monitors. And 5G won’t be doing this alone, Wi-Fi will continue to play a critical role.
In this episode of Cisco Champion Radio we’ll discuss the current state of 5G, the architectural challenges, open standards, and what’s on the horizon.
