5G is the 5th generation of mobile network technology. This next gen cellular technology is going to provide quicker and more trusted communication with very low latency. There has been seen limited commercial roll-outs of technology in few countries in the world. India is also getting prepared to carry out trials of the recent generation of cellular communications. 5G mobile networking technology is planned to release soon in India. Let us learn more about this technology and its launch in India.
How does 5G differ from 4G?
With 5G, the highest network data speed is expected to be within the limit of 2 Gigabit per second to 20 Gigabit per second. This is very high in comparison to 4G link speeds of 6 Megabit per second to 7 Megabit per second.
In addition to faster speed of downloads, the 5G mobile technology also offer a wide range of improvements such as low latency for the use of self-driving cars, IoT devices, etc. 5G networks will be based on radio technology and will allocate large segments of radio bands that comprise of under 6GHz, and above 24GHz.
In comparison to it, 4G LTE frequencies are very much low (Band 5 close to 800MHz mark and Band 40 close to 2300Mhz).5G has ability to offer reliable support to a wide range of tech devices, and also opens the path for several new applications.
When 5g will launch in India?
5G is available in a few parts of the world. Its deployment on large-scale is expected after 2020. Presently, this technology has been launched in dense urban areas, and business districts. Some of the countries that are using 5G services are San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York City, Cleveland, Los Angeles, and Dallas.
In India, TRAI has selected the main band of 3.3Ghz to 3.6Ghz frequency for government objectives and defense purposes. The TRAI spectrum is planned to complete this year, and its commercial roll-out is expected in 2021 or 2022. The Government has said that the telecom sector will take on 5G cellular technology by next year and access to this digital platform is surely advance in the coming 5 years.
Who will benefit by this technology?
Here are some of the amazing features and benefits of the new 5G cellular technology.
It is Ultra-Fast
5G technology will make use of high frequencies that enables people to benefit by its faster speeds and low latencies compared to earlier generation of mobile technology.
Low latency opens up the door to new apps. Besides fast speed, low latency is another powerful feature of the 5G technology. Not just the gaming world will benefit by its lightning fast response of less than 1 millisecond, other tech areas such as smart devices, autonomous vehicles, IoT will also benefit by it.
The technology will enable them to gather and process information quickly and cope up with modifying road conditions. It will help industrial and residential sensors and automation systems to rapidly transmit data between devices.
Implementation of 5G technology in sensor-embedded network that enables real time information transmission across fields like consumer durables, agriculture and manufacturing, makes it a promising technology for the future.
5G will increase the efficient of the existing transport infrastructure. It will allow easy communication among vehicle-to-infrastructure, and vehicle-to-vehicle, that makes driverless cars a reality.
Better coverage in airports, shopping centres and stadiums
5G mobile cellular technology can help people to cope-up with heavy workload of simultaneous connections devoid of poor speeds and network drop-outs.
Easier to download bulk data quickly
High speed 5G technology, would aid users to download “heavy content” such as 8K games and movies with improved graphics in a few seconds.
Supports a wide range of devices
The delivery of 5G services isn’t just limited to the personal mobile devices. It is expected to be used for various emerging technologies that includes IoT, and machine to machine communications, that will assist applications such as tele-surgery, real time data analytics and driverless vehicles. This is made possible due to ultra-low latency of 5G systems that reduces the time required by data to transmit between the source and destination.
Serves a wide range of domains
The 5G mobile network technology will use wireless technologies across new areas of the economy that comprise of industrial, commercial, health care, educational, financial, social and agricultural sectors.
High in demand
The low investments in physical infrastructure, faster infrastructure delivery and low cost makes 5G one of the most important technological inventions in the world. This technology is expected to offer leapfrog opportunities to people by providing them smart infrastructure at the most affordable rates.
