It’s 7:30 a.m. and you’re feeling nervous about those important presentations due to clients around the city today. But hey, at least it’s Friday.

Your commute from the suburbs to New York City is long. Between the commuter train into Grand Central Station and the subway rides to your clients, it adds up to several hours every day. This used to feel like wasted time, but now, with a 5G device powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Platform, you can polish up that presentation and collaborate with your remote team while on the go. The Snapdragon 5G Modem-RF System is built to work on virtually any network and cellular signal, designed to deliver blazing-fast speeds consistently and in more places, including in crowded areas. So, you grab breakfast to-go and head out to work with confidence.

Read on to learn more about how 5G on Snapdragon can transform the experience for commuters and city road warriors.

Collaborate with your team over lag-free cloud apps — virtually anywhere

You settle into a nice window seat on the train, grab your 5G phone from your bag, and catch up on the morning news before your team video conference begins in a few minutes. Thanks to your 5G phone powered by Snapdragon and 5G laptop, you’re able to collaborate with your remote teammates in real-time and fine tune your client presentation and video file in the cloud app, all while on the go.

How it works: The Snapdragon 5G Modem-RF system that powers your Snapdragon 5G device supports virtually all global cellular bands and network types, using the best available signal to keep you connected throughout your day. To deliver the best connectivity possible, the Snapdragon 5G Modem-RF System brings together a wide array of advanced technologies that kick in when needed, across numerous user scenarios such as how you hold your phone, move around building corners, through indoors and outdoors, to name a few.

Don’t let the subway stop you from getting work done

Your presentation with the first client went really well. You’re thrilled that because of great 5G coverage, you didn’t have to ask for a Wi-Fi password or need a VPN to securely connect to the cloud, stream that splash video for the client, or participate in a video conference with your remote colleagues. Now you’re eager to catch the subway to your next client presentation and feel confident knowing that you can tweak the next presentation on the subway. But before you start working again, you decide to check in with the family over video chat.

How it works: With 5G, a crowded subway is not a problem. Although indoor areas, elevators, and basements have previously posed a challenge for staying connected, Qualcomm Signal Boost, an active technology in the Snapdragon 5G Modem-RF System, is always fine-tuning antennas in the phone. This make them more sensitive and better equipped to pick up weak signals, so you can experience superior network coverage and stay connected in more places.

Forget battery stress and seamlessly work across your 5G phone and 5G PC

You’re at your last client meeting, and although you’ve been streaming data over 5G all day, your phone and PC still have plenty of juice left. It’s such a relief to be able to stay connected with your team (and your family) through the day.

How it works: Among the suite of advanced technologies in the Snapdragon 5G Modem-RF System are Qualcomm 5G PowerSave and Qualcomm Wideband Envelope Tracking. These technologies use the modem’s intelligence to minimize power consumption during transmit and receive. Highly efficient signal transmission and reception while maximizing signal quality is key to simultaneously supporting you all-day battery life, blazing fast 5G speeds, and great network coverage.

From connecting and communicating to computing and commuting, Qualcomm Technologies is devoted to creating breakthrough technologies that transform lives. With 5G on Snapdragon, getting to work (or anywhere) can be a better, more productive experience than ever before.
