While we cannot expect it till 2020 but again we are surprised that how 5G would be. Is it like 4G or 3G? No, its totally different from 4G and 3G, however it will be more amazing than what humans have developed and have created. 5G means Fifth Generation of Technology. As we have experience of fourth generation(4G) and third generation( 3G), nowadays, many companies are investing on 5G technology to prepare the new wireless mobile Standards.
While the next generation mobile networks’s 5G is a white paper, it must be based on “user experience,” enhanced services, Business models, system performance and management and operations.
Why the future of 5G is safe?
You know that 5G is still in developing stage, yet, in its initial stages, most of the popular companies are investing in it to create the product and field to test them.
Notable features in 5G technologies have come from Samsung, Nokia, Ericsson, BT and Qualcomm. These companies and their partners are investing and pledging money to grow the research into 5G and its applications.
Samsung company producing a 5G enabled home router and Qualcomm company creating a 5G Modem, Both companies are focusing on 5G hardware while Nokia and Ericcson have created 5G platforms at mobile carriers. Ericsson created a platform for testing 5G since 2015 and created First 5G radio .This year nokia has launched 5G first platform. The function of this platform is to provide end to end 5G support for mobile carriers.This is why its future is safer than 4G and 3G.
Is 5G really much faster than 4G??
Simply, Yes! Its speed will be significantly faster than 4G. Currently, 4G LTE’s transfer speed is about 1 gigabyte per second; when you want to download an HD short movie, it takes about an hour to download it in perfect condition. Now people rarely experience 4G’s maximum download speed because the signal can be disrupted by many reasons like microwaves, buildings, and other signals.
Its speed will be up to 10 gigabytes per second, you can download a full of HD movie in second or mins but not hours. It will also reduce latency significantly (fast load times). It will give wireless broadband the capacity it needs to power thousands of connected devices that will reach our homes and workplaces.
Features of 5G
- 1000x Bandwidth per unit area
- one to 10 gigabytes speed
- 99.999 percent availability
- 90 percent reduction in network energy usages
- one millisecond end to end round trip delay
- 100 percent of coverage
- 10 to 100x number of connected devices.
Advantages and Disadvantages of 5G
It will be significantly faster than 4G, allowing for high productivity across all capable devices with a theoretical download speed of 10000 Mbps, more download speeds and the ability to room complex mobile internet applications.
It will cost more to implement and the newest mobile phone companies have it integrated, other handsets could be deemed out of date.
A reliable wireless internet connection can depend on the number of devices connected to one channel. With the addition of 5G to the wireless spectrum, this could put us at risk of overcrowding the frequency range.
5G will definitely change the history of technology, it is faster and more powerful than 4G because its speed is up to 10 gigabits and more popular companies are investing on it.
It will be like 1000x Bandwidth per unit area, one to 10 gigabits speed, 99.999 percent availability, 90 percent reduction in network energy usages, one millisecond end to end round trip delay, 100 percent of coverage, 10 to 100x number of connected devices. It will be amazing ever.
