Smart Telco – 5G by 2020

Rittal's Smart Telco: The Buzz of the Future


Everyone is streaming everything. There's more and more content out there, and no one waits for it. The demand for high-quality and high-speed data, anywhere, is a challenge telecommunication providers have to meet.

5G networks are the new driver for the telco market, as they are predicted to deliver speeds in multi-gigabits per second. The rise of 5G coincides with the explosion of connected devices and systems associated with the Internet of Things (IoT). Processing these high volumes of data, at a faster speed, will require new antennas, new devices, and new applications. And the influx of this additional data - which will need to be processed in real time - will drive the need for mobile edge computing.

5G Technology:

  • Is key for advanced streaming services
  • Will facilitate management in smart cities

Rittal edge solutions enable:

  • Live mobile content streaming
  • Augmented and virtual reality
