The Telstra 5G Enhanced Enterprise Wireless solution is powered by the Cradlepoint W2005 Outdoor Wideband Adapter. 

The W2005 5G Wideband Adapter is purpose-built for outdoor deployment to address the tradeoff of lower propagation in the low- to mid-band capacity layer.

Four Enterprise Use Cases for Telstra 5G Enhanced Enterprise Wireless?

1. For Business Continuity and Failover

This is the most popular use case for 5G Enhanced Enterprise Wireless. It is applicable to every industry vertical and organisations large and small. The benefits of a secondary 5G link are protection against fixed network outages, accommodating traffic spikes, constructing resilient VPNs, and troubleshooting remotely both the wireless and primary router utilising out of band management through the wireless link.

2. For Reliable Primary 5G connectivity to existing sites

Primary 5G connectivity has a viable use case as a standalone 5G link or for enterprises wanting to complement an existing fixed connection in an active/active setup to provide more resilience, being confident that the full load of that site can be carried for extended periods. Examples of existing use cases include retail stores, branch offices, wholesale suppliers, logistics, and health clinics.

3. For Agile New Site Connectivity 

A key benefit of the 5G Enhanced Enterprise Wireless solution is speed to deployment. Traditionally, the wait for NBN or fixed infrastructure can easily stretch into months, and that's without factoring in potential civil works. By comparison, a Telstra 5G wireless solution can be provisioned in around four weeks.

Enterprise customers who are setting up new retail branches, warehouses and other greenfield sites can benefit from  a strong reliable connection during set-up and beyond. In many cases, if fixed infrastructure is eventually deployed, the 5G wireless access can be utilised as a secondary business continuity link. 

4. For Semi-Temporary Sites

We are living in an increasingly agile world. The traditional fixed infrastructure is no longer fit for purpose for many business use cases. 

Enterprise customers requiring a strong reliable connection for sites that may have a tenure of 6 months to 2 years will see obvious benefits in this 5G wireless solution. Examples could be construction huts, road and rail projects, retail kiosks and event venues.
