Why big data requires massive data upload

With the digital transformation of industry underway across multiple sectors, many organisations require the uplink of extremely large quantities of data in real time or at set points during the day due to the need to share business critical data, technical documentation, or high-quality CCTV footage within their networks.

However, the current options available to businesses to enable the wireless upload of massive volumes of data are limited. Organisations often find themselves relying on technology such as Wi-Fi which doesn’t always meet their capacity and security needs. With limited quantities of spectrum available for conventional mobile networks, which have been built around the needs of consumers, organisations are now relying on technology which is no longer fit for purpose. One answer to this challenge is 5G mmWave technology, of which Blu Wireless is a pioneer.

mmWave is transforming 5G connectivity in sectors as varied as smart cities, maritime, public safety, defence, and transport due to its ability to uplink vast quantities of data quickly.

Specifically, the use of licence-exempt mmWave spectrum (57-71 GHz) provides organisations with access to zero cost spectrum which is capable of supporting multi-gigabit per second data transfer rates.
This insight paper outlines the current data challenge as well as the limited flexibility of today’s 5G deployments, especially when it comes to achieving a balance between uplink and downlink performance. We will also illustrate some concrete use cases of how mmWave technology allows massive volumes of data to be transmitted, uploaded and downloaded, at multi-gigabit speed and without impacting the rest of the network.

Our new insight paper explores this in more detail and covers:

  • The opportunity of 6G
  • Tackling the data challenge
  • The role of mmWave technology
  • Use case: Powering port transformation with 5G mmWave
