The prospects for 5G and the Internet:


The latest news is characterized by one detail: when describing the prospects for 5G and the Internet, only the increase in access speeds and communications is taken into account. For some reason, no one takes the trouble to understand the situation and realize the side effects. For example, such as an increase in the load on the network, hosting and reduced bandwidth.




The main aspects:


5G is certainly a great idea. No worse than WiFi-6. Of course, the two technologies will synergistically have a great effect. The question is – with the speeds that 5G is capable of giving – how quickly will the providers be able to increase the bandwidth to the required level?


Beyond that, we come to the most important thing. Thus, with increased speed and bandwidth comes the unique ability to operate in near real time. For example, this is critical for emerging technologies such as, for example, unmanned cars and drones. Not to mention important industries such as the usually overlooked utilities industry.




The prospect of utilities operating in real time makes it possible to respond instantly to any emergencies. And on the scale of large cities, especially metropolitan areas, this is a very good thing.


We can’t even talk about cell phone users and home use…


We need to bring it up to the necessary level:


Providers, of course, will need to be concerned about expanding channels of communication. And there are no other options. In addition, the development of such an area as edge computing – is already happening at an accelerated pace. Since you need close servers to provide critical infrastructure with minimal response from servers – energy efficient solutions will also be needed, as well as power supply lines. Among other things, we can’t forget that the number of towers for 5G will be larger because of physical limitations on signal frequency permeability.


In the smart city:


Even things like regulating the flow of cars, switching traffic lights based on traffic, responding to power outages, the supply and temperature of the same water all require sufficient network capacity.



And in smart homes, critical sensors (responding to fire, water and gas leaks) must also function smoothly.


Due to such requirements, the development of new technological aspects of communication is inevitable. These include the quality of communication protocols, security and redundancy.


Smart City regulation:


Edge computing leads to another network speed pitfall: it’s configuring systems through a Web-based interface in Internet.




That is, in such an environment, hosting providers will need to evolve to an appropriate level. Namely: points such as, for example, the speed of access to hosting. And also: the limits of data transfer, the speed of exchange between VPS and clusters in the edge systems…


So, when planning the infrastructure of companies will need to take all this into account. Otherwise, when the requirements grow, you will have to face the consequences of initially wrong calculations.
