RESEARCH PAPER: HPE Delivers Intelligent Connectivity

By Will Townsend, Patrick Moorhead - September 30, 2019

Today’s 4G LTE mobile networks deliver a number of transformative connectivity services and applications globally. From a consumer perspective, ridesharing applications such as Uber and Lyft continue to disrupt a taxi industry fraught with poor service, high prices, and lack of reliability. For enterprises, private LTE networks provide new connectivity options for verticals such as transportation, logistics and manufacturing. 5G promises to further transform the enterprise with significant improvements in device support, bandwidth and responsiveness. Carriers in the United States, China and South Korea are spending billions of dollars on aggressive 5G deployment efforts in the hopes of achieving “first mover” status to monetize new service offerings. Those enterprises that want to be early adopters and reap the potential competitive advantages of 5G seek guidance given the various stages of deployment currently underway. It’s also important to note that Wi-Fi will have an equally important role in facilitating a flexible networking fabric. Based on its unlicensed spectrum, cost-efficiency and superior propagation indoors, Wi-Fi 6 will play a strategic role in the overall connectivity of devices, assets and people.
