Latest News About 10G!

We know all about 5G, but now it’s time to find out about 10G!

Just as we were getting around to figuring out 5G, the telecommunications industry rolled out their 10G initiative at the Consumer Electronics Show. 10G will be the latest in advance network technology for cable companies. So how are 5G and 10G different? For starters, 10G is 10 gigabits-per-second speeds wireline, and 5G is wireless speeds of 5G. 10G will not interfere with 5G since one is wired and the other is wireless. This was reaffirmed by Michael Powell, the president and CEO of NCTA (and former FCC chairman), “The naming convention to me is a bit of a sideshow,” and elaborated that he doesn’t necessarily view it as a 5G versus 10G scenario. “They really work in tandem with each other to deliver consumer experiences.”

There are many companies that are developing new technology.  A few major ones are Cox Communications, Comcast, and Mediacom to name a few. The cable industry as a whole is extremely vague when it talks about the new tech’s promises. The only thing we know as of now is that in 2020 field trials will begin according to, WK Tan, the vice president, and general manager of Intel’s Connected Home Division. “We are seeing tremendous results with these technologies in lab settings today and are working with operators to start trialing them in customer homes as early as spring 2020.”

The 10G wired network will offer speeds so fast for people and companies that waiting times will be a thing of the past. This will allow companies to work faster and more efficiently. For example, using GeoTel’s Teletracker service will become faster to locate the necessary information a company would need to make important business decisions regarding location and competitive analysis, infrastructure possibilities, etc.  If your company is interested in how TeleTracker can help resolve these decisions, GeoTel is happy to help.
