Are your business goals focused on enhancing the customer experience to meet ever greater customer demands? Or boosting operational productivity and efficiency by extending process simplification and automation? Perhaps you are seeking to improve employee satisfaction and retention as part of strengthening your employer brand and culture. Or you could be looking to build resilience in your supply chain to withstand turbulent time? The answer to many modern business challenges lies in how you use new technology.

For any company, the emergence of powerful new automation technologies such as robotics and machine-to-machine communications in tandem with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have the potential to enable significant competitive advantage.

Yet while businesses face ongoing skilled labour shortages coupled with a dogged reliance on manual processes and repetitive tasks, making the most of these new technologies can seem to out of reach. But it’s essential companies champion their adoption to stay ahead.


Reliable, secure, and scalable connectivity

Of course, to underpin the use of modern technology, you need to design a high-performance network that’s fit for the task. And this means reliable, secure and scalable. To choose the right connectivity option – 4G, 5G, LTE, fibre, satellite, mesh, or a combination – it’s important to first map out and understand:

  • the number and types of devices that will be connected to the network
  • the amount of data that will be transmitted
  • expected response times, and  
  • the level of availability required.

Another factor for consideration is the physical layout of your space, as is network security. It’s critical to deploy security measures such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, encryption, and access controls as one holistic security layer. 




5G supports ultra-high bandwidth and extremely low latency 

Performance is a key consideration for reliability and continuity of connectivity. For modern applications that require near real-time control and feedback, 5G offers a highly flexible technology that supports ultra-high bandwidth and extremely low latency. 5G also supports device density to reliably connect a vast number of new network devices and systems – including sensors and cameras to robots and autonomous vehicles. 5G networks area also a good fit in factories and warehouses where maintaining reliability can otherwise be challenging. 

Designing a network on 5G also allows you to prepare for the future, in terms of its ability to scale and enable faster deployment and provisioning when you need to support additional devices, increased data volumes, and new applications.
