Apple is testing 5G: Why this matters to the iOS enterprise

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

Faster, more stable, capable of supporting more devices and equipped to handle life in the fast lane, 5G technology is the next wave of networking, and Apple is deeply involved in testing and developing the standard. What does Apple hope to gain and why should this matter to an iOS enterprise?

What is 5G?

While it is important to note that 5G is not yet ratified as a standard and networks that use the standard aren’t expected before 2020, 5G is touted as the next-generation of wireless broadband.

The GSMA has set some criteria, most of which need to be met for a network to call itself ‘5G’. They include 1-10Gbps connections to devices and other end points and the capacity to support up to 100 times as many devices per cell as possible in current implementations.

It only takes a few minutes for fish to spot the real problem: The router's WAN port has been destroyed by the same blast that took out the original modem -- along with a printer, a dishwasher and several other pieces of equipment, according to the restaurant's manager.
