The Fifth Generation Mobile Network: 5G

There has been much talk about the coming 5G. People are expecting much, businesses are preparing much. But would it be like we expected? Would there be a big difference? Are businesses really ready for it? Read below to find out everything about 5G.

5G is the fifth-generation mobile network. The “G” is used to describe the generations. 5G will not only connect people but also interconnect and control machines, objects, and devices. It will deliver multi-Gbps peak rates, ultra-low latency, massive capacity, and more uniform user experience. 5G will be used in a range of industries from retail to education, logistics and so on.

Smarter. Faster. Greater Stability. Connecting Many More Devices at Once.

These features have the potential to supercharge business, and that’s one of the reasons 66 percent of businesses plan to deploy 5G in 2020, according to a study by Gartner. Also to the study, IoT communications remain the most popular target use case for 5G, with 59 percent of the organizations surveyed expecting 5G-capable networks to be widely used for this purpose. The impact on businesses will be massive. Chip, modem, and phone manufacturers are already starting to develop and adapt their technology to it. Not only technology firms will be affected, as the IoT grows and evolves this will affect all the industries such as banking, agriculture, etc. The network of smart technology (smart houses, smart cars, etc.) is growing up, which means that lots of machines and equipment will be part of this big net.

5G will have a noticeable effect on businesses, that is certain. But can consumers notice the difference as well? The most noticeable impact of 5G will be the faster streaming capability. Imagine downloading any movie in seconds. To benefit from all of this first you will need a 5G compatible phone and these phones should switch between 4G and 5G to find the most suitable network.

Also, the common question is what will be the price of this super network? 5G doesn’t have a price tag yet. But a key objective is to lower the cost-per-bit (data cost) compared to 4G LTE.

5G is developing rapidly and it needs time to reach the expectations. Some trials have been exposed but most of them are expected to come out in 2020. So, the new year is going to make our world upside down!!
