WiFi is here to stay, but so is 5G!

As 5G has already paved its way in certain fields, murmur has started that the virtues of 5G may even outplay WiFi. On the other hand, techies strongly opine that WiFi networks, especially, as it keeps getting better with every new version, it is surely here to stay.

In fact, 5G’s usability is likely to get flourished with the help of WiFi 6 and WiFi 6E. Both the technologies (5G and WiFi) are likely to march hand in hand soon enough and will transform the whole ethos around us.

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” — Helen Keller

Despite the fact that there was not even the faintest idea of such technologies at the time when Helen Keller said the mentioned quote, it fits perfectly to 5G and WiFi connection.

As we know, the tech world has high expectations from 5G especially regarding, faster connectivity, timely results, and real-time responses. But is 5G able to deliver all these on its own?

What Can Keep 5G from Functioning and Flourishing?

One of the biggest hurdles for 5G is that it needs to be deployed as near as possible to the user relying upon smaller antennas and base stations.

Here is where WiFi will come at the rescue as the deployment of secured WiFi set up is way more cost-friendly, and that can help 5G’s reachability. Also, the scalability and manageability of WiFi 6 are also impressive enough to complement 5G.

The most exciting part of this unison of 5G and WiFi is that it can efficiently provide an engaging user experience and can get as fast as the range of gigabits ensuring low latency.

For more than a decade, WiFi has already served us when it came to many day-to-day operations like online learning, remote working, and telemedicine.

Now, when we are looking forward to services that WiFi and 5G combined can provide, we are talking about some great innovations like driverless cars, advanced biometrics at airports as well as remote building management, Extended Reality (AR/VR/MR), as well as smart farming.

Moreover, the enterprises are likely to look forward to the seamless integration of Wi-Fi and cellular access in the 5G networks as it is able to come up with monumental benefits like:

  • Public & Enterprise Wi-Fi
  • Industry 4.0
  • Smart City
  • At home Wi-Fi only devices

We, as individual users, and multi-sized businesses, can expect a bright future of connectivity owing to WiFi’s latest innovations WiFi 6, and WiFi 6E. WiFi’s combination with 5G is likely to see a widespread in an upcoming couple of years.

In a nutshell, it’ll be an understatement if we just say that WiFi and 5G together will create wonders in various industries.
