By 2020, forecasts suggest that, around the globe, there will be around 6.58 network connected devices per person. With over 7.5 billion people on the planet, this means that there could be nearly 50 billion network connected devices by 2020. As such, a hot topic dominating conversations as we propel into the new year has been not only the evolution of broadband networks to enable next generation speed and latency, but how the data will be distributed once it gets inside.

Promptlink Communications Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Chris Boring, joined Geoffrey Short to discuss the future of 5G, 10G and 802.11AX, where we currently stand and what these advances mean for both businesses and consumers alike.

“These three technologies—5G which is mobile, 10G which will be fixed in your home, wired, or in your business, and then WiFi (802.11AX or WiFi 6) which gets you connected to this back end—will all work together to offer businesses the ability to do more services, for consumers to do everything they want to do as seamlessly as possible. 

Taking communications to the next level, allowing more and more data content to flow through the pipe while allowing end users to cut the cord, the rollout of 5G, 10G, and 802.11AX will create a ripple effect, enabling companies to provide better offerings and consumers to ingest data like never before.
