Benefits of 5G for Facility Management
Improved connectivity – Now more than ever there is a need to communicate, share information, and be connected to the internet. 5G is more dependable, faster, and lower in latency reducing the risks of connectivity issues, thus, improving remote collaboration and making the use of maintenance management software more effective and practical to use.
Speed – More speed means more opportunities to streamline work more efficiently. It also means uploading, downloading, and sharing large files will be faster creating ease of access. With 5G devices, uploading training videos or pictures of a maintenance project using a facility management application, such as GoCanvas, for creating custom forms and tracking maintenance, is quick and seamless without the need to compress files.
Powering predictive maintenance and virtual reality – The practice of predictive maintenance will become more common. More sensors, machines, and robots will be connected—which will facilitate equipment performance tracking and better anticipate breakdowns before they occur.
