VoIP Poised to Reap the Benefits of 5G Rollout



Although it may still be a few years away, 5G technology is on the horizon, and it is expected to have a significant impact in the business world. 5G is the next generation of wireless network capabilities, and it will make a dramatic difference for Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services. The technology means VoIP will be able to offer much faster speeds and a much bigger load capacity as well.

Faster Connections and Speeds

Broadband speeds are expected to be up to 10 times faster with the use of 5G technology. Even more important, the technology brings a wider capacity that will allow you to access any function without experiencing a lag in speed or connection. You will be able to perform your work, or play, no matter where you are, and no matter what the volume of users is at any time.

Anticipated Benefits

A new high-spectrum band will carry 5G anywhere in the world, using signals at a higher frequency than 4G. The new band, with a wider load capacity, also means there will be much less congestion than what you see on today’s 4G band. The new technology will expand businesses use of VoIP due to anticipated benefits such as:
Latency: Lag time will decrease to 1 millisecond, allowing quicker connection between the tech device and the signal tower.
Response: Faster response times mean the signals will be clearer, with no voice breaking.
Quality: 5G technology will offer improved voice quality, helping to ease frustration with unclear communications.
Noise: The signal-to-noise ratio will be greatly diminished, nearly eliminating background noise on VoIP calls.
Downloads: With faster speeds, what now takes minutes to download will take only seconds to complete.

A Little History

VoIP was pioneered by a company named VocalTec, beginning in 1995 with an Internet phone, which allowed one user to call another using the same software. In 1998, the company made voice communications possible between computers and telephones, and phone-to-phone calling via the Internet. Use of VoIP grew with advances and adoption of digital transmissions and by 2003, some 25 percent of all calls were using the technology.

As broadband became available and improved, so did VoIP use. Today, it’s poised to expand even more as 5G technology becomes available. Donald Burns CEO of VocalTec, expects VoIP calls will become much clearer, while the number of disconnections and lost information packets will plummet.

When Will 5G Get Here?

Companies involved in developing the technology are expected to begin the rollout with business applications by 2022 or 2023. It may be a few years later before consumers begin to see its applications through services such as Netflix. Developers are working to bring about the launch as soon possible.

The Future of 5G Business VoIP

VoIP technology has helped make telecommuting possible, as companies have been able to connect, and stay connected, with employees located anywhere in the world. With continued advances, telecommuting will become more widely accepted. With 5G technology, more employers can take advantage of flexible work environments and reap the benefits of decreasing overhead and increasing productivity.
