The excitement around 5G and IoT is going to be a great opportunity for Infinet Wireless, says CEO Dmitry Okorokov. “Operators will need more backhaul because they will need to deliver more capacity. One can’t get fibre everywhere especially outside of big cities so they will need to deliver a lot more capacity at their points of presence and this is exactly what we do and this is exactly where our current roadmap is going. This is the future.”
Okorokov further added that the company is soon going to launch various new products in the coming months. Commenting further on 5G, he said 5G would require much more than the capabilities possessed by LTE currently- it would be a combination of various technologies. IoT means machines are going to be smarter and more intelligent, as a result of which there would be new challenges coupled with increased demand for higher capacity and backhaul, hence that again is good news for Infinet, Okorokov says.
Historically, operators represented around 100% of Infinet’s business – as its technology developed, its products found applicability for various enterprises as well. “With our current roadmap, we would have a new suite of products which will touch an area where we have never been before- the operators’ core network,” Okorokov added.
