public sector

Public and private sector mobility programs feature distinct differences. While governments are often more cautious to adopt new technology, 86% of agency employees believe optimal working conditions can only be achieved with the latest available mobile devices. Additionally, 66% say improved communication capabilities could make a major improvement to their organization’s overall success. Despite this, only 64% of current public sector workers use a smartphone or BlackBerry for work. In terms of mobile device security, public sector awareness is severely lacking. Today, only 27% of public sector employees realize information stored and sent from a device is encrypted and only 21% are aware an agency can track how and where a device is used. If end users took over an Information Technology (IT) Director or CIO position, 70% would make security their top tech priority. Organizations need a complete mobility…

second chance

Almost every enterprise uses mobile devices today. However, more than 80% are still stuck in the initial stages of mobile maturity. Despite numerous features and functionalities, 38% of companies leverage mobility solely for remote email and calendar access. Another 43% are only slightly more mature because they collect basic program data and have implemented additional device security. The most mature efforts out there are “additive;” about 19% of programs feature application integration capabilities, location-based device data, and multi-factor device authentication. Nine percent also utilize interactive software tools that facilitate third-party collaboration and external data analysis. No mobility program is fully mature, but a Mobility Management Platform (MMP) accelerates organizational progress and makes businesses 29% more profitable and 15% more productive.

5G and the Future of Mobility

5G

As Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona, media members are buzzing about the next generation of wireless networks: 5G. While nobody knows exactly when they will debut, a few more details have emerged. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU), a United Nations-created organization of 191 member states and more than 700 global members, recently determined their first-ever list of 5G network requirements. Among other mandated minimums, each 5G cell must be able to handle at least 20 billion bits of downloaded data per second. That’s 20 times more than today’s best Long-Term Evolution (LTE) cells! Next-generation cells must also be able to support one million connected devices per square kilometer. Future networks also need to move data faster than current solutions do. 5G networks are required to be at least five times more efficient than LTE alternatives, trimming latency from…
