Introduction to 5G network
5g is already here
Its 2021 and we are having a pace of new technology reformation and innovation so here we are introduced to a new generation of mobile networking
5G is the 5th generation mobile network. It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks.it is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.
this networks are the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, offering faster speeds and more reliable connections on smartphones and other devices
How fast is 5G?
it is said that 5G is 500% faster than 4G LTE
Peak data rate: Peak data rates can hit 20 Gbps down link and 10 Gbps up link per mobile base station
Real-world speeds: The spec calls for user download speeds of 100 Mbps and upload speeds of 50 Mbps.
Latency: Latency, as we mentioned earlier is the time it takes data to travel from one point to another, should be at 4 milliseconds in ideal circumstances, and at 1 millisecond for use cases that demand the utmost speed.
Efficiency: The optimized use of spectrum or bandwidth so that the maximum amount of data can be transmitted with the fewest transmission errors.
Connection density: it should be able to support many more connected devices than LTE. The standard states 5G should be able to support 1 million connected devices per square kilometre.
Is 5G safe?
Yes it is safe for sure Although some concerns have been voiced about the this TECH by anti-5G campaigners, particularly with regards to radiation, research shows there’s no scientific evidence of any risks caused by it.
International Commission on Non‐Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) – an independent non profit scientific organization that assesses the health risks of radio broadcasts – has declared 5G completely safe
How does 5G work?
Unlike LTE, 5G operates on three different spectrum bands
Low-band spectrum :- While low-band spectrum offers great coverage area and wall penetration, there is a big drawback: Peak data speeds will top out around 100Mbps.
Mid-band spectrum :- provides faster speeds and lower latency than low-band. It does, however, fail to penetrate buildings as effectively as the low-band spectrum. Expect peak speeds up to 1 Gbps on the mid-band spectrum.
High-band spectrum :- is what delivers the highest performance for this network, but with major weaknesses. It is often referred to as mm Wave. High-band spectrum can offer peak speeds up to 10 Gbps and has extremely low latency. The main drawback of high-band is that it has low coverage area and building penetration is poor.
What will 5G networks offer ?
- Faster download
- upload speeds
- Smoother streaming of online content
- Higher-quality voice and video calls
- More reliable mobile connections
- More secure mobile connections
Is it available now?
5G is already here, and global operators have started launching new this networks in early 2019. this mobile networks are expected to be available nationwide in many countries by 2020. Also, all major Android phone manufacturers are commercializing 5G phones. And soon, even more people may be able to access this network.
What can 5G do?
- Improve broadband
- Public safety and infrastructure
- Autonomous vehicles
- Remote device control
- Health care
This network for consumers means not just faster mobile internet, but mainly internet connectivity in many more objects than what you see today. Whether you are an online gamer, a 4k video streamer or just love the high-speed internet (who doesn’t), it is sure to change the way you interact with the web
