Understanding 5G: Telecom industry poised to overhaul wireless systems

Fifth-generation mobile networks could change the way businesses share data and make transactions while handling a host of other activities, all at blazing speed.

Welcome to the world of 5G, a complete overhaul of wireless technology and infrastructure that’s emerging among the world's telecommunications providers, or “telcos.”

And, right now, the policies for securing these devices is in its infancy, increasing the risk for attacks.

Enterprise Wi-Fi technology comes home

As the Internet of Things continues to evolve, most people would agree, the one key ingredient left out of this recipe for Jetson’s bliss has been a smart Wi-Fi router. Typically, we have one router in our home. Many have tried extenders to increase coverage and speed, with little success. The challenge lies in the fact that Wi-Fi signals are, at their core, just radio signals. And, radio signals are not good at passing through hard surfaces like walls, ceilings and floors. As one gets further away from the router, the signal gets weaker.

The Internet of Things and business technology

There's been quite a bit of buzz lately about a company called Twilio, a San Francisco-based start-up launched in 2007 by Amazon.com veteran Jeff Lawson and software developer Evan Cooke. Twilio’s technology is credited for shifting the world of telecommunications away from hardware and carriers and toward a software-based model. Tech experts point to Twilio as a harbinger for the future of business technology.
