The future of Telecommunications
The future of Telecommunications
Evolution to Digital Transformation
As providers of managed services and connectivity, telecommunications companies are evolving by leaps and bounds thanks to digital transformation, driven by high competition and obviously the new needs of their customers together with the generational change that this means. People and companies want their problems and needs to be satisfied in an easy and mobile way, this leads us directly to the use of cell phones connected with all possible devices.
IoT - Connected Devices
Today it is already feasible for you to control many electrical devices in your house from your cell phone, for example, program the clothes washer, or that with a simple notification you know which part of your car needs maintenance before it stops working. In this context, it is estimated that in 2020 (next year) there will be more than 20,000 million devices interconnected with each other, we call this IoT or Internet of things and the object par excellence that will function as a channel for users will be the Smartphone.
5G will completely transform the
In addition, 5G technology is about to become a reality that will help the expansion of the IoT and the entire digital ecosystem. The arrival of 5G is so important, which represents a revolution in the economy and industry, for this reason, Telecoms are the center of Digital Transformation.
Unlike what happened with the replacement of 3G by 4G, 5G will have a deeper impact on society and companies, as it will be the basis for the development of Smart Cities, Virtual Reality, high definition content audiovisuals (8K), as well as the internal client, its processes and the integration between companies.
Therefore, the need for telecommunications companies to prepare their network infrastructure, including the media attention observed today around the US trade war with China and the relevance of each country’s position, including the announced presence of leaders at the next Google seminar.
Case of use
An example of the use of this technology was made by a well-known brand of smartphones that showed, in a cable car, how a 360º camera connected to a 5G Smartphone, which, in turn, was connected to a 5G base station, allowed via streaming to project the video in real time. The interesting thing is that the audiovisual content was received by a user connected with virtual reality glasses, experiencing the experience of traveling by cable car firsthand.
This new mobile generation will represent, for the telecommunications industry, an important leap in terms of how to approach its strategy and organizational purpose, transforming itself from connectivity providers to facilitators of innovation ecosystems.
Another of the most important trends for the sector is Edge Computing or Computing on board, which will greatly benefit from the deployment of 5G networks. Edge Computing is the technology that will allow the data produced by IoT devices to be processed in the same place where it is generated, preventing it from being sent to a data center or a cloud platform and analyzing in real time what really matters, discarding the data that is not useful. With this infrastructure, companies that are committed to Edge Computing will lighten network traffic, avoiding “bottlenecks” that may occur with the enormous demand generated by connected devices.
Big Data - The
key to the future
If by next year there will be more than 20,000 million devices connected to each other, it is estimated that by 2025 there will be 100,000 million: alarms, sensors, mobiles, household appliances, code readers, wearables and much more. With this volume, speed, variety and value of the data circulating through the networks, it will be imperative to do management and analysis on them.
Big Data is capable of converting data from any source, whether structured or not, generating really valuable information to transform businesses, innovate in products and services, create campaigns with a good return on investment and, in short, make better decisions in real time. to lead the market. You can also obtain and transmit data related to customers, such as likes or dislikes about a product through social networks, chat, even feedback via the web or through other applications.
Even today, there are large volumes of data that must be managed and administered to generate real value for your business. It is clear that those companies that today are learning to combine and reinvent their analytical and business processes have greater and better options in terms of redefining a new and more personalized value chain, which allows them to have a comprehensive vision of what is happening in their environment and what affects them directly. In this sense, those telecommunications companies that have already adopted Big Data as a strategy are increasing their brand loyalty, discovering “truths”, making predictions with a high degree of precision, exposing the reliability of their products and / or or services, as well as improving their internal processes.
