The 5th Generation Mobile Network in brief 5G is a new global standard network following 4G. 5G is designed to virtually connect everybody and everything together including machines, objects, and devices.
5G is meant to create higher multi-Gbps peak data rate, more reliability, massive network capability, and uniform experience to its users. 5G is regarded as a game-changer of the 21st-century inheritance.
Before 5G’s full implementation, many controversies have surrounded the ceremony. Many even speculate 5G is the reason behind coronavirus pandemic.
Some even state 5G is a population control system orchestrated by technology giants to control the planet’s population.
We’re not focusing on the controversies surrounding 5G. We’re going to concentrate on the great side of 5G within this report.
5G technology actually is a game-changer. Some countries have already begun enjoying the service. Let’s look at a number of the characteristics of 5G.
- Up to 10Gbps data speed -> 10 to 100x improvement over 4 and 4.5G networks
- 1-milestone latency
- 1000x bandwidth per unit area.
- Up to 100x the amount of connected devices per unit area
- 99.999% availability
- 100% protection
- 90% decrease in network energy use.
- Up to 10-year battery life for non IoT (Internet of Things) device.
Why 5G is considered extremely fast and a game-changer?
According to a principle of communicating, the shorter the frequency the larger the bandwidth. 5G does exactly that.
5G offers extremely low latency speed, that’s the delay between sending and receiving information. 4G provides 200 milliseconds but for 5G it goes down to 1 millisecond. That’s a gigantic improvement.
Some nations have already rolled out 5G support. Others have either partly rolled out the service but either way its all the same.
AT&T has also made 5G available to the mobile network in 35 cities and 190 markets.
South Korea — As of January 2020, South Korea has rolled out 5G support to 85 cities. Even though it’s not commercially available but was supposed to be available by 2020.
Japan — Japan has fully launched a 5G support.
With many nations facing some challenges in implementing the 5G network, others are already enjoying this new kind of network Technology.
Though a number of those countries mentioned above haven’t made the service commercially available to consumers, they’re still working to accomplish that aim by the end of 2020.
The US for example hasn’t rolled out the 5G community in the entire country as well as China, Germany, and the United Kingdom. The majority of the countries aren’t fully rolled out.
Technology is quickly advancing. 5G network is evidence of just how far technology will go. Sooner or later, 5G services will be available in most countries.
