5G is the fifth generation of wireless broadband technology and as described by tech giant Huawei, (one of the world’s leaders in 5G innovation) it is 1000 times faster than 4G. Many countries started to deliver their 5G infrastructure in the year 2020.
5G That Has Changed The Future Telecom
You will have faster technology in your hands and more powerful and effective speed to download your favourite movie or games. According to various news sources Huawei, which builds network equipment and smartphones, has more than 1000 engineers and scientists working on 5G projects where people will have better experiences when using their cellular and broadband devices like in smart cities, connected cars, 5G cloud robotics and virtual reality.
How 5G Works?
In 2018 at the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai Huawei demonstrated the world’s first remote driving field test for a smart consumer car on a 5G network, a test it carried with China Mobile. The driver sat 30 kilometres away from his car. High-definition video cameras inside the car sent him real-time HD video feeds over 5G providing him with a 240-degree view of the vehicle’s surroundings.
Signals for the steering wheel, accelerator and brakes were also transmitted over the network, which provided the ultra-low latency (the technical term for turning around data quickly) needed to support instant response to different roadside conditions. At 30 km/h, the distance between braking and actual deceleration was only eight centimetres.
Also, 5G be used for smart manufacturing. Imagine 5G enabled, wireless collaborative robots, ushering in another industrial revolution. Factories could operate as autonomous entities, with machines exchanging information in real-time.
Pokies and games are not far behind when we speak of 5G for gaming. As VR experiences are usually either tethered to a computer by cable or rely on a smartphone to deliver the experience. According to media reports right now at Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen zombies using 5G wireless technology that delivered not only 360% streaming visuals to a headset, but also tracked motion in real-time are tested and researched.
5G Mobile Phones
Many telecom companies including Intel, Qualcomm, Nokia, and Samsung have already launched their devices that will support future technology. The upcoming 5G Mobile Network Technology will be significantly faster than 4G. It will be able to distribute the theoretical download speed of up to 10,000 Mbps. Additionally, the technology comes with greater bandwidth, which turns its download speed faster and has the ability to run more complex mobile Internet apps.
As per the estimation on the basis of top researchers, the 5G Mobile Technology will cost more. Now, the integration of the 5G technology has started to implement and the other handsets could be out of date. The addition of 5G to the wireless spectrum could put us at risk of overcrowding the frequency range.
With the successful use of 4G technology, telecommunication companies are looking forward to 5G Technology as a new step in the communication network. The major achievement of this technology is to have fast downloaded with small use data. It can hope that 5G Mobile Wireless Technologies will be completely achieved in 2020.
The 5G latest mobile wireless standard is based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard of broadband technology. To meet the 5G, the connection should meet the following requirements: have up to 10Gbps connections to endpoints in the field, 1000x bandwidth per unit area, 10 to 100 number of connected devices, 100% coverage and up to 10-year battery life for low-power.
Features of 5G Network
Following are some of the features of the 5G Network
- The advanced billing interfaces of 5G technology make it more attractive and effective.
- 5G technology also provides subscriber supervision tools for fast action.
- The 5G technology is providing up to 25 Mbps connectivity speed.
- The 5G technology also supports a virtual private network.
- 5G technology offers a transporter class gateway with unparalleled consistency.
- The traffic statistics by 5G technology make it more accurate.
In Australia and New Zealand, 5G services have started as early as 2019 and companies like Huawei and other carriers are working hard to make it happen. First, you will get 4.5 (LTE-Advanced Pro). There are many service providers like Optus, Telstra, and Vodafone that have started offering 5G services to their customers in Australia.
Like other generations, 5G isn’t also without challenges like the possibility of 5G frequencies being blocked by buildings and losing their intensity over longer distances which could undermine wider coverage. But certainly 5G mobile network technology has brought more new features along with the speed. Almost all developed and even developing countries are now offering 5G mobile infrastructure to their consumers. Stay tuned here for more such updates on mobile technology.
