What is 5G?

Nov 19, 2020

The Internet of Things is growing so fast that once 5G is in place, every piece of technology will soon need a wireless connection to the internet. 5G is the 5th generation mobile network. It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. 5G technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, more reliability, massive network capacity, Higher performance, etc.,

5G network is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices. 5G also uses wider bandwidth technologies such as sub-6 GHz and mm Wave.

5G runs on the same radio frequencies that are currently being used for your smartphone, on Wi-Fi networks and in satellite communications, but it enables technology to go a lot further.

5G is about to extend the possibilities that current 4G networks offer.

These include:

  • High-speed wireless connectivity 5G will significantly increase the speed and responsiveness of wireless networks. The speed of data transmission over a 5G network could reach 20 Gbps. 5G will also improve the communication in crowded or remote areas.
  • Quick reaction time 5G is 100 times faster than 4G, with latency around 1ms or lower and gigabit-per-second speeds.
  • 5G will increase the available bandwidth, so the amount of data transmission will increase significantly.

5G will dramatically improve:

  • Security
  • The ability to add new functionality.
  • Immersive augmented reality and 3D gaming
  • New case uses and new mobile apps that require better movement connection.
