How Robin Leverages Open-Source Technology to Expand 5G Private Networks
Now that most providers and companies have adopted 5G technology, it’s started to evolve at a much faster pace. When you talk about 5G, most people think of mobile phones, but it’s also about private networks as well.
According to W. Brooke Frischemeier, Senior Director of Product Management, 5G and Edge at Robin.io, “Until about a few years ago, I didn’t really know what we were going to do with private 5G, but we’re part of a number of coalitions now.” Frischemeier believes “it’s going to enable a lot of things in rural areas and one of the things I find fascinating is smart agriculture.” Smart agriculture can make it possible to do things like monitoring insects. Frischemeier says the next big benefit of 5G is smart cities, which has “absolutely huge deployment options.”
