ABC 3rd Friday OakBrook - Exploring 5G

Explore 5G and how it will impact us and our clients. The objective of this month's discussion will be to explore: a) what we see as the potential for 5G communications in society, and b) what, if any particular action we can take to ensure our clients are aware of, and can adopt, capabilities that 5G technology will enable. Always a lively discussion. Please reply to Meeting host Richard Bullock - e-mail address below.

Adopting 5G in a Timely and Cost Effective Way

We are in the early stage of rolling out the next generation of Communications Network technology, 5G Networks. You have all probably seen articles taking about it and some of its implications for......... well, everything.You may recall we had about 5 sessions last year attempting to go over the nature and potential for Ai in the economy.I class Ai as one more (but uniquely powerful) sensing technology in the broad array of technologies coming together to form the "storm of creative destruction" that will result in the 1st Societal Revolution.Most references to Ai say it is leading to a 4th Industrial Revolution.The latter "headline" is far too narrow in its descriptive scope in my view.

Underlying this prognostication are numerous technologies that are coming of age (together early adulthood, not even 40+ yet).One of the more central tools in all the scenarios of "unbelievable stuff" will be the "pipeline" moving all the data bits from one participant in an event/or process, to another, or more accurately; AMONG ALL PARTICIPATING ENTITIES, BE THEY LIVING, MANUFACTURED, SYNTHESIZED, PROGRAMMABLE OR NON-PROGRAMMABLE...etc.

Don't hold me to technical precision, but 5G (5th generation) Networks will be the combination of wireless, (terrestrial, satellite), fiber-optic and (some) cable networks that will be capable of transmitting data 100 to 120 times faster than the fastest 4G (current) networks.That is networks at 20,000 MB/sec vs 150 MB/sec now.In the early stages of network growth, the late 80's, 1MB/sec was the maximum available.

The objective of this month's discussion will be to explore: a) what we see as the potential for 5G communications in society, and b)what, if any particular action we can take to ensure our clients are aware of, and can adopt, capabilities that 5G technology will enable. I propose we look at this exercise as an extension of the RPA meeting in that operations automation, RPA and 5G can be seen as linked phenomena. The question we might need to answer could be, "Is there a new way that these technologies need to be delivered to the NON-GIANT (large to small) enterprises to enable them to adopt the min a timely, cost effective, way?
