5G Technology: Next step towards Advancement
It will be apt to say this era as “Mobile Era”, within every ten years next generation of mobile communication get launched. After 4G (LTE: Long Term Evolution), 5G Technology(fifth generation network) is the upcoming technology in the field of wireless communications.
What is 5G Technology?
5G succeeds the LTE/Wimax (4G), 3G and 2G systems. It is the next generation of mobile communication with enhanced capabilities. 5G technology is under development and will be launched in the market by 2020. This technology has the potential to completely change the way we interact with wireless devices, from the smartphone to the cars we drive.
- Increase in bandwidth to meet capacity needs and allow greater access for users.
- Provides high resolution.
- Reduced delay between the request and response made by users.
- Greater speed
- Lower battery consumption.
- It will gather networks on one platform.
All the aforementioned benefits will give users a fantastic experience by providing faster download speed, increased browsing speed, less delay and increased bandwidth.
Comparison between 4G and 5G Technology
- Speed 4G- Downloading speed: 300Mbps
Browsing speed: 300Mbps
5G- Downloading speed: 1Gbps
Browsing speed: 7.5Gbps to 10Gbps
- Latency 4G- 50milliseconds
4G: Good improvement over 3G but does not meets the growing needs of masses.
5G: Has potential for billions of devices to be connected through IoT.
5G is still under development; it will not be compatible on existing devices. Companies are creating new devices with 5G compatibility. Implementation of 5G will not be an easy task as hardware requirement will increase. It could take time for it to be available everywhere.
When is 5G Technology coming to India?
Indian Government, unlike previous generations of mobile telephony, is determined to deploy 5G across the country by 2020 (the year it is expected to get launched in other countries) and most probably will be available by 2022.
5G is more intelligent technology which will connect the whole world beyond limits. It will provide the extraordinary capabilities which will open a new door in this era of mobile by giving uninterrupted access to information.
