How Multi-family Should View the 5G Network Benefit

Written by Steve Lefkovits

In the future (according to “futurists”), we will be served by myriad robotic helpers orchestrating every aspect of our busy lives while we catch up on GOT and other bingeable shows. Seriously, if you listen to trendsetters like Fast Future’s Rohit Talwar, who developed various industry projections with China-based telecommunications company Huawei, there’s no doubt that 5G is the digital future. From entertainment to driverless cars, education and science, 5G, which is 10 times faster than current 4G LTE, is expected to expand the lifestyle capabilities of every home, workplace and community.

Back to the Future?
The four major telecommunications companies operating in the U.S. – AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint – have plans to roll out 5G in urban areas. Deployments are expected to take place in select cities with commercial building applications up to three years out, with early launches in large areas (like stadiums).

But if you’re getting that “déjà vu all over again” feeling, you’re not wrong. In fact, owners whose memories stretch all the way to 1995 will recall the giddy, wild west atmosphere surrounding “blazing fast 1 MB Internet.” History reminds us that the transition from 3G to 4G presented a lot […]

5G Network Tech: Parsing the Hype for the Multifamily Industry

In the future (according to “futurists”), we will be served by myriad robotic helpers orchestrating every aspect of our busy lives while we catch up on GOT and other bingeable shows. Seriously, if you listen to trendsetters like Fast Future’s Rohit Talwar, who developed various industry projections with China-based telecommunications company Huawei, there’s no doubt that 5G is the digital future. From entertainment to driverless cars, education and science, 5G, which can be 10 times faster than current 4G LTE, is expected to expand the lifestyle capabilities of every home, workplace and community.

More Towers of Power
One reason that 5G is faster is it requires a much larger investment in signal antennas – some say one every thousand square feet. Which makes law makers leery of the municipal challenges. As Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) observed earlier this year, “The new 5G network will need new antennas to work, adding to the network of antennas our current cell technology already uses. This means we’re well on our way to a dangerous situation in which cities are clogged with 5G antennas on public infrastructure, all with little input from cities themselves.”

But for the multi-family housing operator with roof space to spare, […]
