Why 5G May Not Be the Best Choice for MDU WiFi

As 5G continues to gain traction and change the way we experience wireless networks, it’s important to remember that it may not be the solution for every situation. This is especially true for multi-dwelling units (MDUs) that rely on high-speed internet and WiFi networks to keep tenants connected and happy.

Despite the hype surrounding 5G, wired and WiFi networks are still essential for MDUs. With a network installed by DojoNetworks®, MDUs have access to essentially unlimited capacity, allowing for speeds of at least 10gbps. In comparison, even the fastest 5G speeds pale in comparison. By relying on fiber and a managed WiFi network, there is no need for adjustments, and the network is guaranteed to exceed tenant expectations.

5G may be fast, but it still has limitations that make it a risky choice for MDUs. The inability to penetrate building materials and reach top floors of tall buildings, as well as the density of devices that need service in a particular area, mean that cellular networks, whether it’s 3G/LTE or 5G, will never be as effective as wired and WiFi networks for multi-tenant properties. Additionally, there is a lack of clarity around 5G plans, and the types of bandwidth caps or application limits that may be put in place by cellular carriers post-deployment.

In conclusion, while 5G may seem like the future of wireless networks, it may not be the best choice for MDUs. By choosing a wired and managed WiFi network from a reputable provider like DojoNetworks®, property owners can guarantee high-speed internet and exceed tenant expectations without the risks associated with cellular networks.

Why MDU Tenants and Owners Still Need Internet Providers

In today’s world, access to the internet is not a luxury but a necessity. For tenants in multi-dwelling units (MDUs), the internet has become the fourth utility, alongside electricity, water, and gas. As such, it’s essential for property owners and managers to provide reliable internet services to their tenants.

Tenants expect on-property WiFi that can support a wide range of devices, including laptops, smartphones, smart TVs, gaming consoles, and even personal assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Property managers also rely on WiFi to support various devices, including security cameras, door sensors, and smart HVAC systems.

Moreover, property owners must ensure their internet services are compatible with the latest technologies, such as 5G. Fortunately, MDU internet service providers like DojoNetworks® rely on network infrastructure that is compatible with any 5G solution. This means that both WiFi and 5G can work seamlessly together, providing a reliable internet experience for everyone.

In conclusion, reliable internet services are crucial for MDU tenants and owners alike. It’s not just about convenience; it’s about meeting the basic needs of modern-day living.

The Compatibility of MDU Internet Services with 5G Technology

With the rise of 5G technology, it’s natural to wonder if your MDU Internet services will be able to keep up. The good news is that DojoNetworks® and other Internet providers rely on network infrastructure that is compatible with any 5G solution. This means that any solution installed can carry and offload cellular traffic and also add CBRS cards to support 5G.

As a result, there’s no need to worry about a 5G vs. WiFi battle. Both will work seamlessly together to provide an uninterrupted Internet experience for apartment buildings and other MDU properties. DojoNetworks® also prioritizes VoIP and WiFi calling traffic to ensure that residents’ calls transition flawlessly from cellular to WiFi, ensuring crystal-clear communication.

By partnering with a reliable and forward-thinking Internet provider like DojoNetworks®, property managers and tenants alike can rest assured that their MDU Internet services will continue to meet their needs as technology continues to advance.
