Faster Internet Connectivity to Boost Productivity
Google has built Faster, a new undersea broadband cable system that links Japan and the United States with 60 terabits per second capacity. Considered as an anticipation of their new cloud-data center for East Asia region in Tokyo later this year, this step will make people in Asia experiencing a far more decent Internet network spreads equally (Japan and Korea already superior in this), and hopefully for Indonesia too.
Faster cable isn’t the only good news about a better Internet. 5G wireless broadband technology is the next big thing people can get in the not so distant well-developed future. And those reasons could transform smart devices seamlessly connected to adopt Internet of Things (IoT).
IoT devices we have today simply were not built for high-bandwidth networks, 70% of them are currently based on 2G technology, and LTE was generally developed for mobile broadband, not connected devices. Meanwhile 5G’s purpose is to promote connected devices.
IoT isn't just about connecting things to the internet, it's about connecting things to each other. Every connected device will require a smaller processor to speak, thus help another device. A fast enough network could significantly add up the power of those processors so the house could become a big super-processor.
For smart cars’ point of view, a faster network enable cities and governments to more easily automate how energy is used, ultimately saving power and hence money.
None of this would be possible without a high-bandwidth network. It shows that a faster Internet connection will not only for the entertainment content, it also boost human productivity on daily basis through smart devices because IoT.
