5G technology is here, and it’s taking the private sector and government agencies by storm.
With the faster speed of 5G, many industries are experiencing upheaval like never before. These changes are creating new opportunities and rapidly increasing demand for tech professionals in many related sectors, from:
These job markets will continue to shift and grow with the expansion and transformation of 5G networks. Many are predicting there will be a dire need for qualified tech talent from some unexpected industries that have not traditionally been reliant on wireless network technologies.
Telecommunications in Precision Agriculture
Agriculture is particularly poised for transformation by 5G. This might sound surprising, especially when considering that in 2018, only 0.1% of the revenues of agriculture went towards telecommunications.
But agriculture is increasingly facing rising temperatures and unpredictable precipitation levels in dry and wet regions alike. Agricultural businesses are having to shift their focus to monitoring field conditions, enhancing yields, and successfully distributing or reallocating scarce resources.
They’re finding creative new solutions in 5G-powered tools such as:
- Low power sensors
- Integrated equipment
- Data analysis
Building and maintaining a new tech and telecom framework over the long term will be critical. And not in locations you might think. The rapid growth of tech in agriculture is straining existing providers but also creating new, urgent demands for tech infrastructure in rural communities.
Transportation and Logistics Surge In Reliance Of Modern Data Centers
It’s hard to imagine any technology that is changing transportation and logistics faster than the capabilities of 5G networks and the data centers that power them.
Already we see changes to transportation & logistics with:
- The accelerated roll-out of self-driving trucks and cars thanks to low-latency 5G connections.
- Drones now expected to change the delivery of goods even further.
- Real-time traffic flow detection replacing timed stoplights.
We’re beginning to see how the increased use of modernized data centers are enabling logistics and shipping providers to become global giants. And given 5G’s continued and sustained growth, we can expect to see an exponential rise in demand for data centers and their associated technicians.
Data Safety & Security In The Industrial Sector
Industries like construction have not historically been reliant on high tech. But with the rise of the Internet of Things and the 5G networks they rely on, new interconnected systems also come with safety and data security concerns that are plaguing not just construction companies and manufacturing plants but businesses across the industrial sector.
These businesses are quickly making up for their historically under-digitized nature. As they do, there will be a surge in demand for software engineers and cybersecurity experts as well as reliable, secure data centers.
Take care of the technology, and the industry will be able to meet the increased demand for increased growth post-COVID. In construction, builds will be completed more promptly, dangerous errors will be lessened, and worksites will be safer. In manufacturing, timelines will continue to be met, and precious proprietary data will remain secure.
Expect demand to rise as 5G decreases construction costs, increases security in manufacturing, and improves speed and reliability across the industry.
