5G Training for Non Engineers

Even if you’re not an engineer, learning 5G basics can help with practically every business as well as better understanding today’s culture.

The evolution of cellular technology is rampant.

The first generation of cell phones were big and clunky and expensive, but they afforded us a level of connectivity we never had before.

As cellular technology advanced through 4G (also called LTE), we have seen the rise of mobile apps, social media, and streaming video and audio. Each generation of wireless technology has increased speed. Most changes made the latest version slightly incompatible with the previous generations.

But 5G is a totally different species. The change from 4G to 5G has been likened to moving from a typewriter to a computer. When 4G hit the marketplace, the business models to follow such as Uber, Spotify and Facebook could not have been predicted.

The same is expected for 5G.

Bottom line, there may never have been a telecommunications architecture that will affect more lives in so many different fields than the 5G network when its fully operating. Everyone from students and project managers to personnel in marketing, planning, design and operations will be impacted by the domino effect of 5G networking.

For the non engineer, the first thing to understand is that 5G is a work in progress. While the U.S. rollout began in the first half of 2019, it could be many years before the full prowess of 5G architecture is realized. Reasons for this include:

  • Extensive infrastructure needs to be built out including 20 to 25 small cell towers per square mile
  • Extremely costly venture for U.S. carriers at $275 billion per 5G network.
  • Legal wrangling with local municipalities over permits to construct small cell towers.

An analysis of 5G spending by Greensill, the world’s biggest non-bank provider of working capital solutions, estimates the total bill for the 5G rollout throughout the global supply chain is likely to top $2.7 trillion by the end of this year alone.

But most telecom investors believe the costs and inconveniences are worth 5G, which is so big and so important that it’s sometimes referred to as the fourth industrial revolution because it’s so much more than just upgrading mobile cellphones.

From a pure marketing perspective, the 5G phenomenon when fully established is expected to usher in major changes. For example, with near zero latency and super-fast speeds, the 5G networking era is expected to produce real-time analytics, possibly aided by machine learning and artificial intelligence.

5G will enable real-time integration of a wider range of actions and impressions. If a customer makes a purchase, they may automatically cease to receive any advertising related to that product or product type.

This type of marketing is strongly linked to the concept of hyper-personalization and also forms part of the wider evolution of data analytics toward integrated customer intelligence.

Fundamentally, this will improve targeting, segmentation, customer experience and improve efficiencies for both brand and consumer alike.

Augmented reality is also expected to take off along with Video marketing, which is already growing exponentially.

For creatives, 5G will open up new possibilities with writers, marketers and designers facing fewer technological limitations.

Don’t be left out of the 5G loop. Stay current with Tonex 5G training courses.
