There has been increased interest and speculation in the evolution of 5G in recent years, further this year in 2018, 5G is expected to enter the real world. At the end of 2018, AT&T appears to be launching mobile 5G in many selected markets. In addition, from Sacramento, California, many cities will be introduced to fixed 5G as Verizon’s partner with Samsung. While alternative operators, T-Mobile and Sprint, plan to enter the 5G scene by 2019 and 2020. In a national security report released by the White House, the 5G Wireless service is now included as a priority infrastructure.
So what is 5G?
5G is the 5th generation of cellular technology – the G represents the next generation, the 4G standard which was introduced in 2010. In December 2017, a formal standard was established that defines the specifications for 5G. So 5G, when it comes to upload and download speed, will exceed 4G standards by 100 times. In addition, with 5G, there will be less latency problem currently existing on the network. 5G results will be faster and connectivity will be more reliable, which will advance the next technology to come.
Implication of the evolution of 5G
- IoT and autonomous cars
With the evolution of 5G, self-driving cars will be safer, more enjoyable and more efficient. 5G has low latency which will allow self-driving cars to be tightly linked to other connected devices like smart city infrastructure – traffic lights etc. 5G will ease the stress we are currently putting on 4G networks with the increasing number of connected devices. The IoT will be much faster and more dynamic because there will be a rapid transfer of massive data volumes. Without sacrificing performance, 5G will connect more and more devices.
- Mobile innovation
As fast as the mobile internet will be, there will also be an evolution of mobile innovation. With superior AR and VR experiences, there will never be seen or heard before mobile experiences that are not supported by current generation 4G technology. The current smartphone is not aligned with 5G, but as the technology unfolds there will be considerable growth in devices as well. In addition, ZTE has already announced that the company will bring in 5G compatible phones by the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019. 4G is under pressure from increasingly connected devices that will be lightened by 5G technology.
- Internet at home
The technology will be in the game first with fixed 5G, so that the home internet will have many advantages. The most amazing features of 5G technology is that it doesn’t involve a lot of expensive investment in how it is needed to install fiber optic cable. The 5G home internet will be fully wireless, allowing users to enjoy hassle-free internet experiences.
- The future
After much waiting and thinking, 5G is sure to roll out by the end of this year 2018. We can identify that some areas such as self-driving cars, home internet and mobile innovation are called for. evolve with the evolution of 5G. However, in the long term, 5G will bring major innovations in the digital scenario.
