While the future is uncertain, one significant piece set to be installed in the Philippines can change how Filipinos connect.

In an event to celebrate the fruitful results of the collaboration of telecommunications giant Globe, and Chinese mobile maker Huawei, customers were invited to test out sample 5G-enabled devices for themselves inside the Globe Lifespeed Home booth. The designated glasshouse is located at Bonifacio High Street and will be open for guests until September 6.

Wireless Solutions Manager at Huawei Network ZhaoZigang explained during the event the top 10 uses of 5G. These include:

1. Cloud virtual and augmented reality;

2. Connected automotive;

3. Smart manufacturing;

4. Connected energy;

5. Wireless eHealth;

6. Easy deployment;

7. Connected drones;

8. Social network;

9. Personal AI assistant; and

10. Smart City.

How does this affect the Philippine setting?

Divided into thousands of islands and islets, the Philippines' geography makes physical connectivity a demanding commodity. What makes up for it though, is internet connectivity that brings the country ahead in terms of intelligent digitalization, embodied by Globe At Home Air Fiber 5G

Principally, it is through this technology that Filipino families can get to enjoy efficient and affordable internet connection that is innovative and easy to use.

On a more specified target, large and densely populated cities are given the maximum capacity for elevated urban living that comes from the advancement of day-to-day tools powered by 5G technology. For instance, cleaning tools that are equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) prove more precise, excellent productivity. The same is true with AI-applied kitchen and living room facilities. HD content streaming, low-lag gaming, and using intelligent security home features as well, are other advantages.

Rural areas and isolated islands, on the other hand are able to experience more convenient accessibility in terms of business-, financial-, entertainment-, and health-related concerns. The connectivity brought about by 5G technology takes inclusivity to the next level and ensures no one gets left behind.

All these perks and more paved by Globe and Huawei’s grand vision are to sustain their role in promoting and delivering 5G services for home internet.

Initially launched in Pasig City late July this year, Globe at Home Air Fiber 5G is activated through Huawei’s modem. The Huawei 5G CPE ("Customer Premise Equipment") Pro is the network’s first commercial 5G device.
