This level of connectivity will bring efficiency, but it will also bring unprecedented growth in network traffic. How will you meet the needs of your facility? How will you account for the trends that may affect your workplace?
With all of these changes, one thing seems clear: technology is playing a crucial role in how every network is evolving. With the Internet of Things becoming more important than ever, intelligent buildings will require stronger network infrastructure as applications converge to IP. 5G can provide that infrastructure, but it also requires "a lot of data, very high-speed data transmission rates and very low latency," says Pat Thompson, CommScope's VP of Solutions for Central Office/Headend. Choosing the right fiber solution is essential to supporting 5G and IoT innovation.
