There’s no doubt that 5GLAN has great utility for the hospitality market, and this hotel in Miami’s South Beach will soon have it’s own CBRS network.

This Network World article gets it wrong in a number of ways, including the below statement.

"Customers don’t want to have different security policy management systems and two different IT teams to manage the wireless and 5G environments, said Greg Dorai, vice president of product management for Cisco’s secure access group. “The technology to handle that isn’t here yet, but we are on a path to it.”
