what is 5G, how it works

After 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G now we are waiting for 5G technology. the difference each transition made to the speed experienced by the end user.

What is 5G?

Now a days so many companies are talking about 5G technology, hopefully it will comes next year 2019 or 2020. 5G is wireless broadband that represents the fifth generation of cellular networks and promises speed more faster than 4G networks.

5th generation wireless systems will be enhanced networks that will provide us greater speed and having the ability to connect so many devices at once. Data transfer (uploading and downloading) speed will get increased.

5G Vs 4G

5G is going to be faster than 4G networks, with no doubts. According to Manish Vyas, President, Communications Business, at London-based Tech Mahindra, the 5G network “[won’t] just be about higher throughput, coverage and capacity, as we saw in the transition from 2G to 3G to 4G. It will be more about the services and applications that are enabled because of it. This includes the deluge of devices due to IoT apps and critical use cases like remote health monitoring and smart agriculture that demand lower latency and highly energy efficient networks,” he said.

“4G is still evolving and the fastest possible speed is currently close to one gigabit per second (Gbps); however in [our]’ scientific testing, we’ve not seen speeds faster than 425 megabits per second (Mbps) — e.g., less than half the maximum theoretical speed. Even so, these speeds are few and far between. Theoretically, 5G could deliver speeds in the region of 10s of gigabits per second, meaning it could be more than 20x faster than the fastest 4G we’ve seen today,” Stonham revealed.
