5 Reasons You Need More Spectrum

Do you feel like your technology options aren’t working for you? It might be because you don’t have enough spectrum to power your network.

These 5 reasons might be the source of your network feeling maxed out:

1. Mobile phone use is increasing

“Americans check their phone on average once every 12 minutes” (https://nypost.com/2017/11/08/americans-check-their-phones-80-times-a-day-study/)

2. Sensors

Sensors are gathering more information from each device and an increased number of different devices.   Each sensor needs to transmit its data.   How much data can your current network send and receive?

 

3. More devices are using more bandwidth

“81% of businesses use video as a marketing tool — up from 63%, the number reported in our 2017 survey.”

4. Drones

Drones can be attached to a cellular network, a private licensed network, a public unlicensed network , or a personal WiFi network.

5. Smart Cities
Cities are getting smarter and using more devices. From intelligent traffic lights to utility meters collecting more information, the grid is becoming larger and more data driven.
