Some of the growth in the tech field has also been fueled by the unanticipated shift to remote and hybrid working.

Even though the COVID-19 epidemic impacted tech initiatives by restricting mobility and assembly, there are still numerous interesting innovations to watch out for in 2022. Companies have become more adaptable, adapting to the new normal and providing enhanced technologies to assist other enterprises with their task.

Continue reading to learn about the top tech trends to watch this year.

1. Cybersecurity aided by AI

Cyberattacks, email phishing scams, and ransomware are all on the rise, driving cybersecurity companies to look for innovative solutions to solve the weaknesses. Individual accounts, countries' key infrastructure, and organisations of all sorts are all being hacked, resulting in millions of dollars in losses.

In response to the COVID-19 virus, workplace digitization and remote working made it a priority to teach staff on internet safety in order to avoid data breaches and losses.

Businesses are also implementing new cybersecurity technology, such as artificial intelligence (AI), to monitor and protect networks from hackers in real time, rather of reacting to a danger after it has already caused damage. Furthermore, cloud storage providers provide end-to-end encryption.

2. Adoption of 5G technology in a connected metropolis

In 2022, 5G adoption will rise due to an increase in the number of people, connections, and data.

5G technology subscriptions will surpass one billion this year, according to Ericsson's Mobility Report, released by Statista Research

While 4G provided substantial advancements, such as smooth video streaming, 5G is 100 times quicker, meaning uploads, downloads, data transfers, and streams will be significantly faster.

The Internet of Things (IoT), which comprises internet-connected smart objects networking and cooperating, will benefit from 5G. In contrast to 4G, numerous devices can connect to the 5G network without experiencing major speed, latency, or reliability drops. This is due to the network-slicing technology, which divides the network into separate networks with distinct services for each device.
