Who is the biggest 5G & Enhanced Connectivity vendor? The answer to this is pretty straightforward, and it does not depend on who you ask. This is because the market for 5G & Enhanced Connectivity continues to evolve every year, and vendors both large and small are rushing into the market to provide devices to end consumers.
The fact of the matter is that the market today is actually saturated with 5G devices at the present time. Many people refer to these devices as either ultra thin ultra-small devices, or smart phones with near-zero touch sensitivity. However, what many people do not realize is the long list of appliances that can be accessed through 5G technology, and the fact that the term 5G does not actually denote anything at all. The use of the buzzwords ‘5G’ and’Enhanced Connectivity’ is simply a marketing tactic used to gain attention for products that are already in the market. Let us now look at who the largest provider of 5G & Enhanced Connectivity is.
Out of all the different vendors who are expected to deliver 5G to the consumer in the future, two of the top contenders are Samsung and Cisco. Interestingly enough, both of these companies have been developing their own proprietary technologies based on the latest 5G standards. Both of them are very successful at the present time, and both are planning on releasing consumer products in the next few years. The success of these two companies in the mobile world is due to the fact that they have invested a huge amount of time and money into researching and developing the technology necessary to offer a smooth, easy to use, and highly efficient voice-as-user interface to consumers. So which one is the largest provider of 5G & Enhanced Connectivity?
It’s a close call between Samsung and Cisco. While Samsung has focused most of its resources on creating their own customized 5G VoIP solution, Cisco has focused most of its resources on researching and developing the latest Cisco technology to offer a smooth, easy to use, highly efficient voice-as-user interface for mobile devices. You might be asking yourself right now, what is the biggest misconception about these two companies? Is there anything the consumers don’t know about them that they should know before purchasing their equipment? The truth is that consumers don’t know very much about either of these companies.
When comparing the two companies, one thing you’ll notice right away is that the leaders in the technology world, both of which are considered to be industry leaders, have completely different visions when it comes to providing consumers with a solution to their voice-as-user interface needs. You may have heard both companies talk about going’Cloud’ or ‘Eutopia’. If you aren’t quite sure what those two company’s business goals are, let’s take a quick look at their core product areas and mission statements:
Let’s first take a look at Samsung’s Cloud Vision. This concept is centered around providing businesses with an easy way to streamline their internal communication processes by providing them with artificially intelligent SIP (Secure Socket Layer) enabled business intelligence solutions called SIP Trunking Protocols (STP). SIP trunks enable organizations to create fast, flexible, and cost-efficient voice-based interaction within the company by leveraging existing infrastructure and adopting the new unified communications platform – the Cloud. To put it simply, SIP enables organizations to leverage the IP-based voice-as-user interface capabilities of the organization and its network infrastructure to deliver new innovations faster and more efficiently to the end user.
In contrast, Cisco has taken a more traditional approach to delivering enterprise solutions and their mission is to provide robust connectivity to the edge of the enterprise. Cisco’s core portfolio includes state of the art technologies such as Virtual LAN Technology (VLAN), Wide Area Networks (WAN), packet switch technology, and security solutions. Cisco also has several innovative partner relationships that are strategically located around key business centers and distribution hubs. Cisco’s vision is to form an extensive mesh network that will span the entire globe in a manner comparable to the evolution of the internet. One of the emerging cloud economies being driven by Cisco is the data center market and one of the prime contributors to this economy is the Cisco Certified Network Technology Provider (CCNP) certification program.
When these two companies combine, they will create a true innovation platform on which the cloud services will be deployed. This new platform will extend past the existing Ethernet fabric that will enable distributed cloud services and artificial intelligence capabilities. These two giants will then join forces to form an alliance that will accelerate the development of artificial intelligence powered mobile devices. I believe this alliance to be one of the most significant strategic advances in the history of computing. To be sure, we will continue to watch and see what they do with this new venture.
