OVERVIEW

Some IoT devices consume massive amounts of information. A single autonomous vehicle today can demand up to 40 terabytes of data for every eight hours it’s on the road. You get the idea. Mobile adoption and usage are absolutely exploding, with no end in sight. And that would be fantastic if the network could handle that kind of traffic. With 4G/LTE networks already reaching capacity, the industry is looking ahead to the next big Thing and 5G promises to be just that.

Automotive manufacturers.

By turning the very devices that are using all of that data – namely connected vehicles and autonomous vehicles – into decentralized providers of mobile internet services, we have the chance to not only improve the wireless network as we know it today, but the ability to enhance data services by reimagining the very way the internet works.

OPERATIONAL IMPACT

Why tie consumers to fixed radio tower installations, with their inevitable dead zones and heavily congested regions, when mobile access points give providers the ability to reposition these towers on the fly creating a much more flexible and resilient network?

Through turning automotive vehicles into decentralized mobile service providers, we can meet consumer demand and power the infrastructure that is developing with or without it.

True 5G won’t have any presence in the market until 2020 at the earliest, and even then, the technology will be wholly incompatible with existing equipment. (One expert has estimated that a 5G handset, if produced today, would cost at least $1800 to build, so there’s work to be done.) Ultimately, 5G will face years of slow growth before it becomes mainstream and for decades it will have to co-exist worldwide with Wi-Fi, 4G, 3G and even 2G networks.  Thus, this solution is both fast and effective.
