14. Prepare for the future with 5G networks and eMBMS testing
5G is coming, and it’s going to change everything. 5G will enable previously impossible connectivity and latency, while powering a massive web of connected devices — the internet of things. There aren’t that many 5G supported devices in the market. On a separate note, eMBMS or LTE Broadcast requires massive amounts of investment and infrastructure.
What HeadSpin does
Although none of Telstra’s handsets support 5G (yet), HeadSpin is helping Telstra prepare for the coming move to 5G — monitoring performance of test 5G network infrastructure, tracking and monitoring network KPIs, and providing insights from speed tests, packet loss, etc on Samsung S9 Plus phones(which provides LTE plus capabilities) across 200 devices in Australia. HeadSpin is also helping Telstra optimize for video delivery and network performance as part of their eMBMS experimentation.
