5G and Wi-Fi: Charting a path towards superior indoor connectivity

5G NR and Wi-Fi 6 are able to boost bandwidth and capacity while being more efficient than legacy solutions. But, which one should you pick for your specific needs?

Having entered the market at a similar time, the two latest wireless standards 5G NR and Wi-Fi 6, both address the acute need for advanced connectivity. Each one boosts the bandwidth and capacity for both today’s and tomorrow’s networks, and both are faster than their predecessors (4G/LTE and Wi-Fi 5), more energy-efficient, and capable of supporting a greater number of devices simultaneously. How then can a service provider know which one to pick in favor of the other? The decision is not necessarily easy.

For any service provider in the process of comparing the advantages of each option, it is advisable to consider the following:

  • Reliability requirements of the traffic.
  • Critical low-latency requirements.
  • The need for mobility and outdoor wide-area connectivity
  • A complete and future proof solution addressing current and future needs.
