5G to improve connectivity, enable new technologies in SA’s urban centres

The high costs of both acquiring 5G spectrum and laying down 5G infrastructure means that immediate huge declines in call or data costs often being mentioned in public circles are unlikely. On the other hand though, the availability of this high capacity, low latency wireless connectivity in South Africa's major urban centres has the potential to open up the possibility of new and exciting technologies in a variety of sectors. 5G in South Africa is still at an early stage, and its wider deployment faces several challenges. While the shorter wavelength of 5G signals means that it can carry more data, it also means that the range is much shorter than that of 4G. Operators will therefore have to spend more money on additional base stations - not only for the initial cost of the equipment, but also to power the

Future proofing your business communications with Telviva

A team from Telviva attended Mobile World Congress (MWC), held in Barcelona in March, in order to showcase Telviva One to an international audience, as well as to find out more about the latest developments in technology. Beyond the excitement of finding futuristic technology and devices, we were also left assured that the agility and fullness of Telviva One allows it to match and even exceed offerings from foreign peers. Given that mobile operators have a dominant presence at MWC, there was a big focus on 5G, and even talk of 6G developments and the technologies that can be enabled from the cloud as a result of access to high capacity and low latency, as provided by 5G. One of our team conducted a 5G speed test, with 2 gigabytes of data being downloaded in a couple of seconds. Tying in with
