SimpliWiFi ensures clients are ready for the 5G revolution
One of the UK’s leading providers of mobile WiFi connections, SimpliWiFi, is one of a number of companies leading the way in ensuring that their customers have access to the full 5G spectrum when it becomes available in the near future.
Earlier this year, the Government began its sale of the new frequencies that will be used for 5G services, ahead of an anticipated uptake of the new technology in 2020.
While a number of companies are quickly catching up to the advancement in mobile connectivity, SimpliWiFi has already invested heavily in its systems to ensure that they are ready for the future of 5G.
As a supplier to a number of the country’s largest events, including music festivals and large conferences, SimpliWiFi sees the benefit that 5G can offer to visitors, organisers and salespeople at future events.
“Currently we offer a number of 4G solutions, as well as longer-term systems linked via existing broadband connections, to our clients and these are effective at offering reliable speeds of up to 150 Mbps,” said Ozan Pakyuz, Founder and Managing Director of SimpliWiFi.
“However, 5G connections have already proven to be between 5 and 100 times faster the current theoretical maximum speed of 4G technology. In real-world conditions, this may initially translate into average speeds of around 1 – 4 Gbps if current trials are to be believed – a significant leap in data connectivity.”
Recognising the benefits that this will offer to clients SimpliWiFi’s existing router technology has already been adapted to utilise the 5G spectrum, added Ozan. He expects to begin trailing 5G by 2020-21.
“5G is different from the current technology on offer and will require some degree of refinement to ensure that systems can make full use of the spectrum, but our aim is to be at the forefront of this revolution.”
As well as supporting events across the UK, SimpliWiFi also assists in emergency situations where a company loses its connection to the broadband network or is forced to unexpectedly relocate to temporary accommodation, such as in the case of a fire or flooding.
“The use of 5G will be ideal in these situations, providing businesses with similar, if not slightly faster speeds, allowing them to continue trading while they repair their operations,” said Ozan.
“This technology will also prove useful to those in highly mobile industries, such as construction or the emerging pop-up retail and hospitality sector.”
