The “SPEED” of the Sectors That Do Not Take 5G Technology On Their Agenda Will Disappear
In 2003, the third generation 3G mobile communication standard was adopted worldwide, and thus mobile networks started to provide internet service. During this period, the number of mobile applications increased rapidly. Later, 4G mobile communication networks, which debuted in 2010, led a broader coverage area in every field. However, the limited capacity of 4G technology could not reach the high speed required by new technologies and caused the search for new generation mobile technology to begin due to increased energy consumption. Therefore, 5G technology was put on the agenda in 2017.
This technology stands out as a technology that guarantees to connect more devices at once with higher speed and lower energy capacity. This technology, which can change and transform the balances in many sectors from industry to logistics, from energy to agriculture, is not limited to this field. It is also starting to show a presence in the tourism sector. This seems to cause an inter-sectoral turmoil.
What will change in the Tourism Industry with 5G?
With the 5G technology for users, mobile devices’ fast, positive, and practical usage process will no longer be limited to this area. Still, it will also gain momentum in the tourism industry. The marketing departments of this sector will benefit most effectively from this significant change that will take place in a short time with the transition of countries to the use of 5G. Because now “speed” will be a leading role model for us.
In addition, it will find an important place for itself in another detail that is a pioneer in marketing. Of course, this is “location technology.” Because this is a decisive criterion for the marketing sector, much more remarkable marketing-related technologies will develop. A wide variety of advertisements will appear, and knowledge will also be gained with 5G.
Today, the internet is entering a new era with 5G. This second-generation internet inevitably creates a new arena of competition, even at the expense of the old ones. It is undeniable that this competition will also affect the tourism sector. For this reason, companies in the tourism sector need to quickly incorporate 5G technologies into their programs to ensure their sustainability within the scope of digital transformation.
Because the leader in this sector;
- High speed,
- Wide coverage,
- Augmented reality experience,
- Ease of access to favorite movies or TV series,
- Devices with voice control features,
- Instant access to your favorite songs from YouTube Music,
- Many other features, such as instant access to Google, etc., are just a few of the issues that will allow you to pioneer in this competition.
Starting from these points, the sector companies that develop themselves will lead the sector while moving forward. In addition, today’s business world is focused on getting things done online with the remote working system, especially in this pandemic process. Likewise, the education sector is rapidly following it. Just like these mentioned sectors, the tourism sector aims to follow them rapidly with 5G technology. By combining innovations with this technology, they want to offer the citizens the best quality opportunities in transportation, food, beverage, travel, etc. However, not everything is that easy and perfect. Because every innovation has a disadvantage that comes with it so, what are these?
What are the Disadvantages of 5G Technology?
- The spread of 5G technology is slow because the latest mobile devices only support it,
- Having a software-based infrastructure raises concerns in terms of security,
- It requires the use of high–frequency wave sizes to provide high–speed internet quality. In this case, it means using more antennas in many parts of the city,
- In addition, due to these antenna increases, the human body will be adversely affected by the emitted waves.
For this reason, we should consider that ideas that will come to life with many more 5G technologies, from intelligent hotels to public vehicles in the tourism sector, will provide a comfortable and fast interaction for us and offer areas where we may encounter negative feedback.
However, despite everything, it is the fact that the sectors that are/will be left behind in 5G technology cannot prevent a profound loss of “speed.”
