5G is the fifth generation of cellular networks, offers much faster data download and upload speeds. 5G is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks.
Whatever we do now with our smartphones we Will be able to do faster and better.5G technology is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices.
5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity.
5G is used across three main types of connected services, including enhanced mobile broadband, mission-critical communications, and the massive IoT.
5G is driving global growth.
• $13.2 Trillion dollars of global economic output
• 22.3 Million new jobs created
• $2.1 Trillion dollars in GDP growth
How fast is 5G?
5G is designed to deliver peak data rates up to 20 Gbps based on IMT-2020 requirements. In addition to higher peak data rates, 5G is designed to provide much more network capacity by expanding into a new spectrum, such as mmWave.
How does 5G work?
Like 4G LTE, 5G is also OFDM-based (Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) and will operate based on the same mobile networking principles. However, the new 5G NR (New Radio) air interface will further enhance OFDM to deliver a much higher degree of flexibility and scalability.
Is 5G available now?
Yes, 5G is already here today, and global operators started launching new 5G networks in early 2019. All major smartphone manufacturers are commercializing 5G phones.
You will need to get a new smartphone that supports 5G if you want to be able to use the network.
- 5G technology has a theoretical peak speed of 20 Gbps, while the peak speed of 4G is only 1 Gbps.
- The new Wi-Fi 6 wireless standard (also known as 802.11ax) shares traits with 5G, including improved performance.
Testing of 5G service range in mmWave has produced results approximately 500 meters from the tower.
