A scalable 5G network is necessary for getting the most out of what 5G has to offer. This goes far beyond impressive download speeds, although, scalability does assist in creating a faster 5G network. No, a scalable network will allow DISH Wireless to provide its subscribers with a variety of solutions through its wireless network all while lowering costs, expanding its range of service, and maintaining its network like no other wireless carrier in the market. Let’s dive in and gain a deeper perspective as to now DISH Wireless continues to push the boundaries of what is possible from a wireless provider and 5G as a whole.
Automation, Artificial Intelligence, and Scalability Collaborate as One
Managing a network of any magnitude comes with complex barriers and ongoing issues for providers to overcome. With DISH Wireless set to cover 75% of America’s population by mid-summer 2025, there are a lot of things that need to work for building out a 5G network of this magnitude. Using automation, DISH Wireless will better manage its network, develop customized network solutions, and bring these solutions to market faster than the competition.
Innovation and collaboration continue to collide in DISH Wireless’ cloud-native standalone (SA) 5G network. When it comes to scalability, we see this function as one of many working to create a better network experience. By automating essential network functions and managing networks, DISH Wireless subscribers receive better 5G coverage and speeds when using their wireless connection.
Network slicing is another function that is a prime example of automation and scalability providing a superior experience. For a more in-depth look at network slicing, you can check out everything you need to know about DISH Wireless offering network slices to its subscribers here, but the just of it involves customizable, specific end-to-end networks that serve a particular function for an operator. A huge push by DISH Wireless is in the fixed wireless industry and providing custom network solutions for an array of industries in many markets including many rural areas that would traditionally be underserved. By using a scalable, software-based model to create the framework of its 5G network, DISH Network is offering operators the ability to have access to download speeds that surpass many Internet service types including wired connections. Combined with the automotive functions and artificial intelligence (AI) that will power these networks, fixed wireless subscribers will soon experience a better connection thanks to DISH Wireless.
Subscribers Will Benefit From a Scalable 5G Network
It’s clear to see that 5G is going to change the way we communicate but building these networks and network functions comes at a cost. DISH Wireless is creating a 5G network like never before. It is also the first time a DISH brand has entered the wireless industry on this grand of a scale. Considering DISH has a wonderful history of being an industry disrupter, watching this new network come to life is business as usual for the brand. This also means that the company is looking to find any way possible to build for less and present cost-effective network solutions to its subscribers.
Scalability helps DISH Wireless control the costs associated with building and with maintaining its 5G network which means cheaper solutions for subscribers. It also gives DISH Wireless a great range of network capacity due to its increased ability of range and network solutions through network slicing. Scalable networks present the ability for DISH Wireless to maintain its network with great efficiency, for less money, and even improve its subscriber’s network solutions such as those for the Internet of Things (IoT). It will even assist DISH Network in improving the massive responsibility of monitoring, assessing, and preventing breaches of security throughout its 5G network.
DISH Wireless is Using AI With a Greenfield Design to Scale its Network
Reaching markets stretching from the heartland of America to the urban centers of its various cities is a massive undertaking. Through versatile spectrum, DISH Wireless will provide a comprehensive coverage experience for users and with its software-based approach, reach more customers. But even with a software-first mentality, 5G still requires a physical infrastructure to work with. 5G bands throughout all levels of spectrum have difficulty transmitting as far as generations before it. By using a greenfield design, using physical sites that are not developed, for its network infrastructure and AI, DISH Wireless will reach more places and scale its 5G network to complement its efforts in the virtual world with its efforts in the real one.
