Opportunity, Connectivity is the lifeblood of work, CIO
  • Last year, a sudden shift to remote work reinforced a vital concept that companies might have started taking for granted: Connectivity is the lifeblood of work. What role should 5G, the latest generation of wireless broadband, play in that connection? 
  • That's the question explored in a series of virtual CIO Think Tank roundtables held in May and June 2021. Dozens of IT leaders took part in three panel discussions, identifying 5G's potential and hurdles for enterprise adoption, highlighting innovative possible use cases, and illuminating the kinds of partnerships needed for 5G technology and infrastructure.
Opportunity, Strategic and tactical approaches to critical connectivity challenges, CIO
  • The participants—IT leaders from a range of commercial industries, universities, and government agencies of all sizes—drew on their own experience and knowledge to describe strategic and tactical approaches to critical connectivity challenges. How will IT harness the potential and overcome the practical challenges facing 5G, the next generation of cellular technology? What new applications and transformative business changes will the lower latency and higher bandwidth of 5G make possible?
Opportunity, 5G Use Cases: Transformative Ideas and Opportunities, CIO
  • "I’m optimistic, and 4G really taught us a big lesson. Apple, Google and Facebook are 10 times larger today because of mobile," said Mark McDiarmid, SVP, Radio Network Engineering and Development at T-Mobile. "Even though it’s still immature, we’re seeing that 5G can handle secure basic connectivity right now, while potentially laying some tracks for transformation that’s going to come down the pike.“
  • The ability to transmit higher volumes of data opens the door to digital products. "IDC estimates that, by 2025, there’s going to be 181 billion zettabytes of data created, and we need to have the connectivity to support the movement of that data," said Carrie MacGillivray, group vice president and general manager for Worldwide Telecom, Mobility, and IoT Research at IDC.
