TESSCO Adds Pair of Experienced Professionals to Leadership Team The next iteration following 4G LTE, 5G promises to provide exceptionally fast, responsive, and widespread services. The greatest potential for 5G lies in the continuing connection of the surrounding world. From connected appliances and systems to self-driving cars, 5G could provide the speed and bandwidth required to eliminate the barriers to the next level of connectivity. For commercial purposes, the potential applications are compelling. For example, better monitoring of remote sites, communication between distant sites, and significant improve- ments in the ability to manage and control projects and machinery remotely from a central location. These improvements enhance safety and efficiency in industries like energy, oil and gas, and transportation. Connected buildings will become more common, with everything from lights and climate control to security systems, phone systems, and more to be intercon- nected and controllable remotely and by voice. At the recent CES show in Las Vegas, 5G was a hot topic. Technology was on display in the home setting as products like Google Home, Apple HomeKit, and Amazon Alexa have made it a reality already. Commercial, office, and warehouse applications are the next step. 5G Takes Center Stage Pete Peterson
