Globe Telecom Inc. said Monday it is deploying 5G Standalone (SA) technology to further improve its mobile broadband speed and offer more services.
“Globe is creating new possibilities with 5G SA. We are all set to leverage these enablers to make our 5G value proposition more compelling and competitive. 5G SA will allow us to do more services for multiple industries with new business models,” said Globe president and chief executive Ernest Cu.
The 5th and latest generation mobile network is known for high-speed applications such as 4k and 8k video streaming, augmented and virtual reality and ultra-fast internet served to deliver immersive content consumption.
Globe said 5G SA goes beyond speed. With its network slicing capabilities, low latency, always-on connectivity and integration with edge computing, the technology allows the adoption of new concepts and mission critical digital services such as industrial automation, remote surgery and autonomous vehicles.
