Technology

These solutions can use the following technologies:

5G eMBBEnhanced mobile broadband

5G enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) could be used. This can speed up the collection and processing of high volumes of data to aid decision making or video rendering in UHD/8K/4K for entertainment or security (video capture) use cases. It also enables businesses to have the speed required to set things up quickly and change them as required. This is currently available on our 5G network today.

5G would enhance this in the future with new capabilities such as

5G uRLLCUltra reliable low latency comms

Ultra reliable low latency comms (uRLLC) is a future 5G capability that would enable near real-time response rates for critical responses, such as a machine shutting down when spotting a hazard. It will also offer a smoother, synced up to real-time user experience for VR, AR and other entertainment use cases. This 5G capability is expected to be live on our network in 2023.
