The Next Generation in Wireless is Here: Are You Ready?

Wireless devices are everywhere, and their numbers are exploding. New wireless technologies like 5G and OnGo™ help to get the most from these devices. But only those organizations that are set up to take advantage of these new technologies can benefit from them. The rest will be left behind. To make sure you are ready for what is coming, you will want to seamlessly integrate 5G and OnGo™ into your existing network so that your organization’s wireless needs are met now and in the future.

Leading CIOs are turning to Black Box to help them incorporate these new technologies into their existing wireless networks to make sure their organizations can take advantage of the new opportunities these technologies bring as well as handle the increasing demands their wireless networks will soon need to handle.


Everything Wireless—Plan for Tomorrow, Today

With 5G and OnGo™, coupled with other wireless networks, it is important to create a strategy that supports everything wireless—both existing and new.

Black Box can help enterprises implement their wireless strategy and plan for tomorrow, today by following these principles.
Networks Designed for Applications & Devices

Start by learning the wireless requirements for the devices and applications you use now and plan to use in the future. Design a wireless network to meet those needs. This outside-in approach means that your network will be ready for anything.

Leverage the Right Network for All Users

With 5G and OnGo™, together with purpose-built wireless networks, you have more leverage now than before. Place the right device and application on the right network to expand your organization’s overall wireless capacity.

Mission-Critical Performance on All Networks

When using the two previous principles, you can leverage coverage, capacity, and network selectivity to provide mission-critical performance. Not only on one network, but across all networks.

Mission-critical performance is built into everything we do—from design to deployment to support.

5G and OnGo Redefining Mobility in Hospitals

The Evolution of 5G/OnGo is Driving Revolutionary Healthcare Innovations. Over the last decade, wireless has become critical to everything we do. Wireless is not slowing down, but accelerating at an ever-increasing rate. Today there are approximately 6.5 network-connected devices per person in a hospital. Within 3 years, this average will increase to 13 devices per person and more than 50% of all devices will be wireless, potentially overwhelming networks. For the first time, we are clearly establishing the world of “mobile-first” in healthcare technology. Check out this white paper to learn How 5G/OnGo technologies are going to impact hospital operations and healthcare delivery.

Read this guide to find out how your business can retool and reimagine your current legacy system to support an exponential amount of users, devices, and locations.
