Next-generation Network

A next-generation network (NGN) is a broad term that can be used to describe the future of technology, particularly the continued expansion of mobile network infrastructure to allow for faster and more reliable communication between devices. It may also involve the evolution of wireless devices, network infrastructure, and more. The particulars that define an NGN will always evolve, but the idea behind such a network remains the same.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Next-generation Network

For small business purposes, the idea behind a next-generation network should be kept in mind when considering IT needs or future tech upgrades. The current method of accessing a communications network or use of a wireless device will likely change in the future, so SMBs should always be on the lookout for when it is affordable and advisable to upgrade to the next-generation network.
