The 5G technology brings new capabilities that creates some amazing opportunities for businesses, people and society. But what do you think 5G would mean for you? Putting it simply: a lot! In this article, we will learn about the latest 5G technology and its prospects in the near future.
5G stands for fifth generation and is used for cellular networks. It is considered up to 5x faster than the 4G and is creating never before seen opportunities for the businesses and the individuals. If you perceive this you would understand that the faster connectivity speeds, greater bandwidth and ultra-low latency are advancing societies, transforming the industries and also drastically enhancing the day-to-day experiences.
All the services that we hoped to see as futuristic like e-health, connected vehicles and traffic systems in addition to the advanced mobile cloud gaming have arrived. With the 5G technology, we can aid in creating a smarter, safer and more sustainable future.
What Makes 5G So Different?
5G runs on the same radio frequencies that your smartphone is using, your Wi-Fi is using and also used in the satellite communications. However, it enables technologies to move on a lot further. The 5G Technology is really about connecting things everywhere with reliance and without a lag so that people can measure, understand and manage the things in real time. It additionally enables the download of a full-length HD movie to your phone in just a couple of seconds.
The 5G Evolution
The 5G bears enormous potential and things have changed a lot since the very first generation of mobile technology. You might ask at this point what is 5G good for? We will let you know but before that, we feel you might be interested in the evolution of 5G. The following chart reveals it all.
Specification Requirements Of 5G Technology
The following are the specifications requires that supports the 5G technology:
- Up to 10GB per second rate for data, 10 to 100x speed improvement over the 4G and 4.5G networks.
- Latency is 1 millisecond.
- 1000x bandwidth per unit area.
- Up to 100x number of connected devices per unit area as compared to 4G LTE.
- 99.999% availability.
- 100% coverage.
- 90% reduction in the network energy usage.
- Up to 10-year battery life for the low power IoT devices.
What Is The 5G Technology Capable Of?
5G is anticipated to do much more than significantly improving your network connection. It offers new opportunities everyday. This is where the benefits of 5G technology lies. Imagine billions of connected devices that share information in real time for reducing road accidents or imagine a life saving application that can take flight with the help of the lag-free guaranteed connections. If you have been imagining this till now, you need not as these are going to happen soon. Additionally, there are some Disadvantages of 5G Technology that you have to consider.
Advancement In Societies
The 5G technology is opening up cutting-edge ways for improving the safety and sustainability of societies. You will be able to enjoy:
- Smarter electricity grids for the immense reduction in the carbon emissions.
- Even more connected vehicles share the data for preventing road collisions.
- Faster deployment of the emergency services to accidents.
- Connected sensors detecting and warning of early natural disasters.
- Drones slowly becoming a key tool for accelerating and supporting emergency situation response.
- Remote expertise with the specialists smoothly consulting or diagnosing patients elsewhere.
Transformation of Industries
- The 5G technology is the foundation for the efficient, flexible and responsible business.
- Autonomous reacting of the product lines to the supply and demand.
- Digital replicas warning about the real machinery faults ahead of time.
- Autonomous routing of goods from the logistics network based on the real world conditions.
- Complete traceability down to the individual item at the ports and warehouses.
- Remote access to the powerful vehicles and robots for improvised safety in the risky environments.
- Increased usage of IoT (Internet of Things) in agriculture for effective growth of crops.
Elevating Your Experience
5G makes sure that you indulge more in the immersive entertainment and engaging education. 5G technology in India is already shaping the country. You are about to get into:
- Greater realism in Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Extended Reality (XR) with the help of lighter devices.
- Deliver sensory experiences such as touch, via the devices.
- More engaging methods of teaching via the immersive content.
- Immersive virtual meetings for boosting the remote team’s productivity.
- Reliable and stable connectivity in even the crowded spaces.
- New interactions and angles for the live and remote event spectators.
The 5G technology is revolutionary. However, you are required to have a brand new phone that supports 5G if you want to use the network. For instance, smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 5G Mobile Platforms are 5G compatible. There are various new mobile phones that are available and designed to support 5G, and multiple carriers across the globe support the 5G wireless network. As the rollout time for 5G will progress, more smartphones and carrier subscriptions will become readily available.
