There has been an increase in interest and speculation about the evolution of 5G in recent years. This year, again, in 2019, 5G is expected to make its entry into reality. By the end of 2019, AT & T seems to launch the 5G mobile phone in many markets. In addition, from Sacramento, California, many cities will become familiar with 5G as Verizon’s Samsung partner. As alternative carriers, T-Mobile and Sprint, are positioned to position themselves in the 5G scenario by 2020 and 2021. In a national security report released by The White House, 5G wireless service is now included as an infrastructure priority.
So what is 5G?
5G is the fifth generation of cellular technology. The G is the next generation, the 4G standard introduced in 2010. In December 2017, a formal standard has established that set the specifications of the 5G. So the 5G, when it comes to downloading speed, will exceed the 4G standards by 100 times. In addition, with 5G, there will be fewer network latency issues. The results of the 5G will be faster and connectivity will be more reliable, which will allow advancing the next technology.
The implication of the evolution of 5G
IoT and standalone cars
With the evolution of 5G, standalone cars will be safer, more enjoyable, and more efficient. The 5G has low latency, which will allow stand-alone cars to be closely related to other connected devices such as smart city infrastructure – traffic lights, etc. The 5G will simplify the stress we are currently imposing on 4G networks with the increasing number of connected devices. IoT will be much faster and more dynamic because there will be a rapid transfer of large amounts of data. Without sacrificing performance, the 5G will connect more and more devices.
As fast as the mobile Internet will be, mobile innovation will also evolve. With superior AR & VR experiences, you will not see or hear before mobile experiences that are not compatible with current 4G technology. The current smartphone is not aligned with the 5G, but as the technology is deployed, the devices will also experience significant growth. In addition, ZTE has already announced that the company will offer 5G compatible phones by the end of 2018 or 2019. The 4G is under pressure from increasingly connected devices that will be illuminated by 5G technology.
Internet at home
The technology will be used primarily with the fixed 5G so that the home Internet has many benefits. The most amazing features of 5G technology are that it does not require any expensive investments in terms of how it is required for the installation of fiber optic cables. The 5G home Internet will be fully wireless, which will allow users to experience a trouble-free internet experience.
After many expectations and reflections, the 5G should be implemented by the end of this year of 2019. We can identify that some areas, such as autonomous cars, home Internet, and mobile innovation, are called to evolve with the evolution of 5G. However, in the long run, 5G will bring powerful innovations in the digital landscape.
