There’s never a dull moment with technology in your hands. The internet is fast-growing and constantly changing, as well as the tools consumers and businesses use to access it. Fast service, more gigabytes of storage and quicker downloads are in high demand. So if one could benefit the other, it’s a win everyone can enjoy.
Cloud computing has made it possible for small- and medium-sized businesses to get off the ground without breaking the bank to get ERP or CRM software. It has a decentralized infrastructure and low latency. It has also allowed users to work more at home and less at the office, which most people agree is a nice change.
That’s with a 4G network.
4G is currently the fastest and most reliable network businesses and consumers operate on, but all that’s about to change.
5G has even faster speeds, improved UX, zero latency and bigger capacity, which could be very beneficial to cloud computing or very detrimental.
Pros and cons of 5G + cloud computing
Pro: 5G could boost cloud computing by increasing speed and data capacity.
Con: 5G offers speed and great capacity without cloud computing.
Pro: 5G means bigger bandwidth to an already massive range, thanks to cloud computing.
Con: 5G has good bandwidth without cloud computing, so why not cut out the middle man?
Pro: Cloud computing coupled with 5G means it’ll be even easier to work from home.
Con: 5G already offers real-time connection and processing between smaller devices.
So what’s it going to be? Cloud computing, 5G — or both?
The future is still uncertain where these two are concerned, insofar as if they’ll have a mutually symbiotic relationship.
In its current state, it looks like cloud computing will have to start stepping up its game to keep up with the growth of technology and the increasing demands for better service.
One thing is for certain:
As consumers and business owners eagerly wait for 5G to hit the public domain, cloud computing isn’t going anywhere.
