In this technology-centric world, the user demand for increased bandwidth is growing as technology these days requires more data than ever.
To solve this issue, the 5th generation mobile network, also known as 5G has been developed.
5G delivers high speeds with multi-Gbps peak rates, ultra-low latency, massive capacity, and more uniform user experience with a better value to elevate the mobile network to an extent which will interconnect and control machines, objects, and devices apart from interconnecting people. 5G empowers new user experiences to connect new industries and deliver new levels of performance and efficiency. High-quality video streaming and virtual reality software, which was once a dream, is now a reality only because of 5G. This new technology has not only enhanced mobile broadband services but has also expanded mobile networks to support a vast diversity of devices and services.
5G has offered the telecom industry improved performance, efficiency, and low cost. The technology has already been incorporated by organizations in industries such as education, transportation, entertainment, automobile and electricity. VR and AR are now faster, offers more uniform data rates with lower latency, and cost-per-bit. It can transform industries with ultra-reliable and low latency links and is used in the remote control of critical infrastructure, vehicles, and medical procedures.
5G has seamlessly connected a huge number of embedded sensors through its ability to scale down data rates, power and mobility to provide extremely low-cost IoT solutions.
5G is OFDM-based and operates based on the same mobile networking principles as 4G LTE. To virtualize mobile networks, operators use software-defined networking (SDN) in 5G to create a network topology that includes multiple hierarchies with radio access network (RAN) radios of different sizes. 5G operates on a higher-frequency band of the wireless spectrum – the millimetre wave (mmWave) spectrum, which enables users to access more bandwidth.
This advanced form of cellular technology offers a network speed of 10 GB per second which enhances the speed, coverage and responsiveness of wireless networks to connect a greater number of devices than a traditional cellular network. 5G can power multiple devices and work differently on connected products that don’t need a constant connection
