One of the definitions of the word myth is summed up in the line: ‘a widely held but false belief or idea’. Applying this description to the world of 5G network connectivity, there are certainly a number misconceptions that need to be addressed. Which is why we’ve picked 5 of the more common fallacies, and placed them under the proverbial ‘microscope of truth’. So, let's get started:
Rapid expansion; it’s a problem that many companies would like to have, but when your original communications infrastructure is unable to keep up with your plans for growth, it can raise a number of challenges.

WatchOvers offers a range of 24/7 SOS wearables designed to work both indoors and outside. The device offers a GPS tracker, personal alarm and a voice-only mobile phone and is designed to be worn by people in vulnerable groups, such as the elderly and young children.
TireCheck is an international vehicle safety company offering its product as a pre-installed application on a ruggedised smartphone. The app is designed to provide reliable, accurate real-time data that provides customers with all they need to know about the status of their vehicles, whether they need to monitor an entire fleet or an individual vehicle.
As large ports face increased cargo volumes and demands for faster turnaround times, reliable connectivity has become critical. One of the UK's busiest ports needed a robust, port-wide network that would help it increase operating efficiencies and facilitate the adoption of autonomous vehicles and remote-controlled cranes. The network would also need to provide a solid foundation for the port's new terminal operating system.
Airport: Private Network delivers enhanced team collaboration and reliable coverage at one of the world’s busiest airports.
Increased passenger demand is leading to a significant growth in air travel, and airports all over the world are dealing with record numbers of aircraft and people. At one of the world’s busiest airports, an aircraft takes off and lands every 45 seconds. In this time-sensitive environment where seconds matter, communication is vital. The world's busiest two-runway airport needed a network that would facilitate collaboration between its teams and guarantee no communication failures to ensure the smooth running of this challenging environment.
Digital transformation in some sectors has been underway for over a decade, but there’s never been an accelerator like COVID-19. The immediate changes that were forced on people and businesses in 2020 have given proof to digital investment business cases that would have previously required extensive research and a reasonable acceptance of risk in order to implement.

Private networks, and increasingly 5G private networks, are the powerful backbone behind digital transformation in some of the world's largest industrial companies. With low latency, high availability and broad coverage, 5G is fuelling the move towards automation. It’s also helping these companies to embrace the new industrial revolution and implement advanced technologies on their very own networks, throughout their extensive campus environments.
