Recently, there have been many studies of various companies and educational institutions that, for some reason, could not start the online work process. I managed to find out the main reason for this turn of events. In most cases, these problems were connected to the network. The developed communication system was not ready for an active influx of users, people began to use more traffic, thereby undermining the system itself. Communication between offices, schools, and homes became very slow and the quality of video calls was very poor. Since the installed cables were not designed for such vigorous activity by thousands of users at the same time, they could not withstand the loads.
VPN programs that are still frequently used do not improve the situation in any way, but on the contrary, they take up too much of the available bandwidth. The only real solution can be the 5G system, which became very popular during the development of the coronavirus. Some people fear the harmful effects of this innovative technology. So, in this article, I suggest we discuss all the features of 5G with you. We will also take a look at one of the best phones that the modern market offers us - One Plus Pro.
We were not ready for telecommuting
Since I already had the experience of working from home, you may suspect that my life during the pandemic did not change much, except that I was limited in movement. At the time of all the events of 2020, I lived in a beautiful sunny resort town, in which the majority of the population are people of the older age group, which adds another plus to my adaptation. But, unexpectedly, more and more people returned to their hometown, transported their children here during the pandemic, so the congestion of the networks became more and more. The internet has become very slow and unreliable.
The constant network crashes and crashes, the crashing of downloads, and the interruption of an important Zoom conference for me were the last straw of my patience. I realized that the Internet is not so reliable and that I could not be sure of the reliability of the network. Quite often, when traveling to different cities and countries, I used a 4G WiFi hotspot. But, unfortunately, she also let me down. Not only is 4G coverage weak and not available everywhere, but the device was only able to work with one PC. For example, my wife and I could not use the programs we needed on the network at the same time. As soon as we got to work, the quality of the network was just terrible. And if earlier, such difficulties in using the Internet did not promise anything bad (except that you could have missed some interesting stream for you), now your reputation is at stake. Not being able to quickly react to an electronic letter from your boss or problems with connecting to a video conference can show your incompetence and undermine your image.
As happened with the director of one organization, who had problems with access and quality of communication. This moment caused ridicule from colleagues, although everyone understood that it was not his fault. If you need to be the center of attention throughout the entire video call, then you need to have a good enough signal so as not to let people down and not make a mistake. The reason for this poor connectivity is the use of outdated infrastructure. Although we managed to get rid of most of the outdated phones and transmission lines, the cables that replaced them proved to be completely unstable to changing weather conditions. The pandemic is exacerbating this problem. We've all realized that network failures affect the quality of work and learning. But worst of all, it has affected people who use telemedicine.
Sometimes they cannot contact a doctor in time and protect their health. After all, all the devices that they have for these purposes require a network connection. And even if users have a 4G network, it is likely that due to a large number of concurrent users, the network may be congested, which will hinder communication due to congestion of the available bandwidth. Plus, not all older hardware can support 4G. The growing demand for new equipment may lead to its deficiency in some regions. Even more, problems have emerged in the field of security and safety of telemedicine data. Hacking information can lead to irreparable consequences for users. In general, not only watching videos, playing online games, and working remotely from home directly depends on the quality of the network, now, your health has also been added to this list. Now our lives depend on the network.
5G technology will help fix the situation
Diligently developed 5G technologies, worked on by the best experts around the planet, can be the solution to all problems associated with the quality of the network. The main feature of this system is its powerful bandwidth. A completely different processing system enables excellent work at the edge of the network, which was previously unattainable. Since soon we will all depend on the work of 5G, the quality of its work is very important and comes first. Also, the network uses “millimeter wave” technology, which can help improve signal transmission inside buildings and through obstacles. A device that will support 5G, with millimeter-wave frequency, will perform better than 4G. Improved performance can help in video surveillance when it is necessary to check children or patients for their safety.
To provide reliable high-speed Internet access, it can be easily, inexpensively, and quickly made available to everyone. So the 5G modem is coming to the industry soon. You don't have to pull on cables or fiber to connect your home. All you have to do is plug in your 5G modem, and you will have a reliable, fast, and secure connection.
Laying cables is especially difficult during epidemics, and global 5G technologies are still not as fast and secure as we need them to be. By quickly deploying 5G in a few months, we would have been able to prepare for the pandemic. Currently, it is actively developing in all areas. Shortly, our lives, education, work, and health will depend on 5G.
