The roll out of 5G is going to be transformational.
It even promises to bring about huge changes in the way people think about and use wireless communication services. Not only will wireless networks have more capacity and higher speed, but the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) and other devices supported by 5G network will result in new products and services that haven’t even been in the thought process yet.
Over many years, mobile data networks have progressed from a tool that you could use occasionally into one that’s become a vital part of everyday life.
5G (fifth generation) implies, the faster, more capable wireless network technology.
Before the advent of the smartphone, there wasn’t much reason to think cell phones would ever need data services. Since that was the thought process, mobile networks were designed for one use only: voice communications.
The first modern smartphones appeared around the year 2006. At this time, people eventually realized that the smartphones could do more than what they thought. With 3G devices and services, mobile devices could now provide voice, email, web browsing, and location services that weren’t practical before.
With the rising popularity of smartphones, carries realized that the demand existed for higher-speed wireless communication services. In 2010, 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) was invented to meet the demand. LTE is a standard development that was the first to use Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), which reduced interference and improved signal reliability.
The industry continues looking to the future as the uses and demands for mobile data keep expanding. 5G, which begun in 2019 and continues to grow for years beyond, as well as, continuing the design of providing speeds higher than 2 Gbps while offering improved capacity, scale, latency, and reliability.
10 areas where 5G will bring changes to the way we live:
- Augmented and Virtual Reality
- Self-Driving Cars
- Remote and Semi-Autonomous Robots
- Monitoring and Repair Services
- Power and Environmental Savings
- Smart Cities for Enhanced Safety
- Interconnected Transport Systems
- Agriculture Sensors
