The Enterprise Perspective
2020 was the year that carriers across the globe began lighting up their 5G networks for the first time and despite pressures like a worldwide pandemic, the demand for cellular technology increased significantly as many companies attempted to change or evolve their business models overnight to keep the doors open during the global health crisis. This meant business being done in remote locations or new areas being connected for the first time, including curbsides and parking lots. While early buzz around 5G centered on the consumer play, the next-generation cellular connectivity option is quickly becoming even more critical for businesses.
In fact, digital transformation has been sped up by years for some industries, and 5G will drive that growth even further, according to a group of executives who shared their insights on 5G innovation at CES 2021.
