When to Replace Your Tablet: When It Gets 5G
No one likes it when their internet goes down, nor do people like slow internet either. Thankfully, 5G internet will be arriving just in time to help everyone who’s having to rely on their internet more.
What is 5G?
Simply put, 5G is just better internet.
“5G wireless technology meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.” –Qualcomm.com
This is especially helpful for people who are working from home and need a reliable connection to get their work done efficiently and effectively. The 5G network is still being built, but many phones, tablets, and other devices are starting to be designed with 5G in mind.
Because of the pandemic, many workers who would normally work on their specially secured network at their job now are simply working on their home network. This hasn’t gone unnoticed for hackers, many of whom have ramped up their efforts this year.
Expect companies in 2021 to focus on cybersecurity to help keep sensitive info locked away.
Better Accessibility to Machine Learning and AI
Machine learning has taken the world by storm. While it initially was much more difficult to set up, it’s now starting to become more widely available and put into software and platforms as a tool people can take advantage of. This has enabled businesses to optimize their systems and find solutions that they never would have been able to achieve before.
AI has also become integrated into many people’s lives in a multitude of ways. Smart speakers, tablets, mobile devices, and many other small ways you may not even have noticed all are using AI to better the quality of your life.
Improvements to Working from Home
It’s highly likely many people will still be working from home in 2021 and this hasn’t gone unnoticed by tech companies. Many businesses have implemented cloud systems so people can still share work online and many others are working on developing additional devices people can use to work remotely.
While 2020 hasn’t been the best year for many, there are plenty of exciting developments to look forward to with regards to tech for the upcoming year!
