5G: enabling the real-time enterprise
Why is 5G important?
5G is a technological leap that announces a significant transformation of business models for all companies and in all sectors of activity. To take advantage of the opportunities available, companies must anticipate their application use cases without delay, and we, operators, must be fully mobilized to support them and develop solutions that meet their needs. The story of 5G has to be written together.

Why Orange Business?
Our approach to the 5G market is customer-led
Orange Business is co-innovating with its enterprise customers around the world to test and develop 5G use cases prior to commercial launch. 5G will enable an increase in data rate and capacity. 5G allows for network slicing — dividing a single connection into separate slices to give different traffic types different priorities. It will facilitate multi-access edge computing (MEC) to bring processing power closer to the user for latency-sensitive applications.
5G brings many business benefits with more bandwidth capacity
It introduces new, high-frequency spectrum to meet the demands of speed and capacity with the ability to aggregate all bands. The new air interface supports mass connectivity and increases the efficiency of spectrum use. Meanwhile, it introduces a new architecture based on one physical network supporting multiple virtualized networks.
5G will complement current technologies
5G will complement rather than replace current connectivity technologies, enabling enterprises to leverage their existing investments. The spectrum of business use cases is so broad and each use case has unique bandwidth, geographic range, latency and cost requirements.
