Wi-Fi vs. Cellular Networks: Which Is Going To Last?
A new search tells us that in another decade, we will not require Wi-Fi at all. CEO of the IoT company Hanhaa, Azhar Hussain, thinks…
…the end of Wi-Fi is nigh because he believes that allocating spectrum in smaller chunks will let municipalities, universities, and companies create private 5G cellular networks.
This convenience will lead the companies to select cellular connections over Wi-Fi for their IoT devices. This is because it becomes easier to set up and the company finds it simpler to control the experience of the users. Wi-Fi devices are known for being terribly difficult to pair or connect to each other. For this reason, Google and Amazon have come up with onboarding processes that make it simpler for users. However, other device manufacturers are yet to apply this.
To make things easier, Apple, Google, and Amazon are working on a standard for smart homes. However, the final solution will be available in 2021 at the earliest. Looking at several Wi-Fi ecosystems, naturally, cellular networks seem easier. While they cost more since radios and so on need to be installed on the devices, the fee is set to go down in the future. In fact, there are businesses and municipalities setting up their own cellular networks, such as the Citizens Broadband Radio Services in the US. While there is a chance that Wi-Fi might not disappear completely, small cellular networks are no doubt going to rise in popularity and use.
