The novel, long-awaited 5G technology is approaching. The fifth-generation cellular wireless will believably revolutionize the networking we currently have, whether they are for business or individual purposes.
Speaking of the promising, well-known technology, it is surprising that not many people know what it actually is. Despite being among the popular future technologies, many people are clueless about it, let alone its difference from 4G.
As enlightenment, a video about Enterprise Tech Bernard Marr and Huawei CTO Paul Scanlon’s discussion on 5G will provide a basic insight into it. Here are several key points of the discussion.
5G is the 4G on Steroids
5G will improve three fundamental aspects of the current cellular connection, which are larger channels to accelerate connectivity, lower latency for better responsiveness, and its ability to connect more devices at once.
Compared to its predecessor, the technology will predictably possess x10 to x100 of 4G’s connectivity speed. In other words, it will greatly accommodate download and upload, automation industry, and fast video streaming.
It will Facilitate Digital Technologies
With great connectivity comes great data. Thus, the newly-enhanced big data will be highly contributory to various digital technology advancements and practical implementation.
Of those, the data will facilitate technologies such as driverless cars, machine learning, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, and so forth.
Health Issues Surround 5G
5G will operate in a new wave spectrum, which is the high band. Reportedly, this newcomer works on very short-range frequencies and requires more towers, but the speed is godlike.
However, due to its shorter frequency electromagnetic radiation, many people worry about possible health risks it may cause. That said, there is no scientific evidence that justifies these radio waves’ negative effects on health.
Mobile Network Replaces Wired Network
For the first time in forever, the mobile networks will have the capacity to truly replace the wired network. This allows businesses to establish satellites to cover previously uncoverable places.
Moreover, it will facilitate on-the-go connectivity, such as on trains and planes, to a whole different level. Also, its capacity might replace the use of fiber optics, relieving the complexity in laying fiber optics to every street and building.
