The supply chain sector is already familiar with technological tools. The many benefits that come with 5G will undoubtedly improve its operations. In this blog entry, we’ll take a deep dive into that topic and see in detail what parts of the supply chain the technological capabilities of the new network will improve.
5G – the fifth generation of the cellular network standard – is undoubtedly a technological game-changer. Compared to 4G, it introduces an entirely new level of data transmission speed, reliability, number of connected devices, and low latency. Each of these improvements is a crucial change. But, in my opinion, the most ground-breaking is the minimised latency.
5G is not just another boring order-of-magnitude-increment in mobile data speed – it’s a game-changer across countless industries. However, to harness all the new opportunities, Mobile Network Operators will have to team up with Software Vendors and Cloud Infrastructure Providers. In this article, we’ll analyse the areas in which such cooperation is essential.
