Big Data and 5G

Sorting through explosive caches of information by applying 5G to big data will be a game-changer for businesses looking to make smarter decisions. Thanks to 5G’s super speeds, big data can be processed faster and can be applied to solving complex business problems.

5G is a wireless technology that is offering a staggering increase in transmission bandwidth, theoretically 10 gigabits per second (GBPS).  Downloading such huge data in just a short span of time is directly pointing to Big Data.

5G will inevitably increase the data footprint as enterprises start to work on use cases that will be data intensive. To process large volumes of data, data centres, edge devices and cloud infrastructure will play a crucial role. Therefore, organisations will have to move to nimble and sustainable architecture for their data centres and cloud infratsructure.

5G will revolutionize the handling of Big Data and will significantly improve communication, caching and computing capabilities. 5G wireless technology will also play a crucial role in Big Data pre-processing due to its 24/7 availability and the impact it can have on network storage capacities and computing capabilities.

Data analytics will benefit tremendously from fifth-generation networks because the promise of faster download speeds combined with low latency makes it possible for analysts to collect, clean and analyse large data volumes in a shorter period. Technologies derived from data analytics, like predictive maintenance, AI, and deep learning, will be much more effective with 5G.
