5G Wireless WAN is here.
5G has the power to bring cellular from a trustworthy
backup option to become the primary SD-WAN link.
Gartner finds that:
By 2023, 5G will double enterprise wireless SD-WAN deployments from 5% to 10%
5G will quadruple wireless SD-WAN deployments to 20% of SD-WAN locations by 2023
40% of global CSPs will have launched viable public 5G services by 2025
Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) will grow to 20% of the market in 5 years
5G Your Way
Let’s talk about deployment. It’s important to know that 5G comes in multiple spectrums. 5G cellular spectrums are complementary. A successful 5G Wireless SD-WAN solution utilizes a combination of Sub 6Ghz and mmWave spectrums:
Sub 6Ghz 5G, also known as low-band and mid-band 5G, has great reach and reliability, and can provide multi-gigabit download speeds of up to 6.5Gbps. Sub 6Ghz use cases include: urban deployment, rural deployments, mobile and workstation endpoint connections, broadband branch backup, and more.
mmWave 5G, also known as high-band and ultra wide-band 5G, provides much greater throughput but comes with distance and stability limitations. Use cases include Industry 4.0 IoT and OT transformations, Smart City technologies,
Wireless WAN allows for faster, simpler transformations. Your branches and SD-WAN are no longer restricted with broadband availability: access multicloud applications and offer rich digital services wherever cellular is found.
Dashboard integration means your Wireless WAN technology is easily deployed and managed through your SD-WAN console.
