The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the ways businesses create value, engage with customers, and facilitate innovations. Delivering digital experiences also has become an absolute must as consumer behaviour is likely to have been transformed forever. From a shift to remote working to a surge in e-commerce shopping, industries will have to adapt fast to deliver the best experiences and instant access in order to attract and retain customers.

Technological advancements and innovations in cloud, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and next generation 5G connectivity will be the critical enablers.

5G’s promise of ultra-fast speeds, ultra-low latency, high-capacity and high-throughput solutions for connectivity and the availability of ubiquitous connectivity will drive higher performance, greater efficiencies, enhanced security and more agility within the organisation, as well as create new business models and revenue streams.

With the arrival of 5G standalone (SA) network in Singapore to enable multi-access edge computing (MEC), businesses across multiple industries will be able to power up new possibilities such as:

  • Manufacturers will be able to integrate performance tracking capabilities with IoT and advanced robotics, while handling the huge data load in near real-time. Utilising MEC & 5G, companies can develop and deploy groundbreaking applications in a variety of environments from on-premises to the cloud such as Microsoft Azure.

  • Real-time video detection and analytics enabling next-gen safety and security monitoring. These will require 5G capabilities in order to transmit huge amounts of data without a massive strain on traffic loads. Utilising the combination of MEC and 5G, an analysis can be conducted instantaneously to help identify threats or safety breaches in real-time for immediate action.

5G also sets the stage for new consumer experiences. From discovering whole new worlds with augmented and virtual reality experiences, to streaming 4K videos seamlessly, to enjoying lag-free gameplay and video conferencing; what was once impossible is now a reality.

  • Next-level, immersive entertainment experiences that bring books and music to life. From standing on stage at sold out shows to switching spots to enjoy different concert viewpoints at the touch of a button, to watching a dinosaur come to life in your living room, 5G will power these augmented experiences.

  • 5G presents many new exciting opportunities for retailers to deliver seamless, personalised engagement with consumers. For example, it can enable immersive experiences such as interactive in-store fitting rooms leveraging augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), where shoppers can try on clothes, request different sizes and ask for immediate assistance through interactive mirror interfaces. It can also enable shoppers at home to try on clothes or make-up via AR.

With the world relying increasingly on digital connections, 5G will be a key driver of the digital economy post-COVID, shaping the future of work, learning, mobility, smart cities and daily life as we know it.

It's time to power up new possibilities in how we live, work and play, with Singtel 5G, Singapore’s most powerful 5G network – ultra fast, ultra smooth, ultra consistent, ultra responsive and ultra secure.
