5G What is 5G? It’s all in the details

5G According to some sources,

it is suggested that a new generation of 5G may be introduced in the early 2020s

What is 5G?
5G is a fifth-generation mobile network which is one step ahead in mobile technology. It will be on next telecommunication standers and will be more advanced from 4G/IMT-Advanced.

5G is the data which is going to be used in the future for our phones and tablets. It is very similar to the LTE (Long Term Evolution) standers which are working for the 4G system.

Just have a look at the history of this new mobile generation. First 1G system (Introduced in 1982),

a first 2G system (Introduced in 1992),

first 3G systems (introduced in 2001) and first 4G system (Introduced in 2012).

One to 10Gbps connection to endpoints in the field


Difference between 5G and 4G
With 5 you can communicate so fast that it becomes almost real-time communication, putting mobile internet services on par with office services,

on the other hand, 4G provides an additional speed boost to the growing business services such as mobile video conference and cloud computing.

4G also provides very cost-effective international calls on data calling services.
4G network mostly focused on the availability of raw bandwidth, while 5G mainly focus on providing worldwide connectivity to lay the ground for the fast and the flexible access to the internet user whether you are on a top of the building or down under a subway station.

Advantages and Disadvantages:


eyes are looking towards the development of 5th generation or 5 technology and services.

Although the deployment of any wireless or cellular system takes many years,

development of the 5G technology systems is being investigated.


The new 5th generation,

5 technology for cellular systems will probably start to come to fruition around 2020 with deployment following on afterwards.
Other 5G concepts

Some of these include:


and seamlessly move between them.
Group cooperative relay:

This is a technique that is being considered to make the high data

rates available over a wider area of the cell

Currently data rates fall towards the cell edge where interference levels are higher and signal levels lower.

modulation scheme and other parameters to configure itself to gain the best connection and optimum performance.

Smart antennas: Another major element of any 5G cellular system will be that of smart antennas. Using these it will be possible to alter the beam direction to enable more direct communications and limit interference and increase overall cell capacity.
5G would be more effective, efficient and significantly faster than 4G providing higher productivity across all capable devices with a theoretical download speed 10,000 Mbps.

Along with all this superb facility, it will come with a big cost concern. All new mobile phones are manufactured with the 5G integration

but this system will not support to old mobile phones hence people have to buy new phones else this facility is useless for them so it would be an expensive affair.

Technology is still under process and research on its viability is going on.

Mobile Companies who are working on the  system:
Samsung: Electronics giant Samsung has conducted the trial using the 5G base station and  mobile phone prototypes compliant with  technology.

They have achieved the download speed of 1 Gbps over a 2Km distance at the microwave frequency of 28 GHz. the products showcased included consumer devices for fixed wireless access connectivity.

Samsung also has expanded its tablet portfolio with Galaxy Tab S3 and Galaxy Book and outlined a series of measures to “enhance” product safety.

Nokia: The Company NOKIA has demonstrated  technology based prototypes showing peak data rate speed of over 30 Gbps. The technology will serve more than 1 million 5 phones in a single cell simultaneously.5 FIRST builds on our commercial 5 Nokia AirScale and AirFrame platforms to provide a versatile solution that spans the network.

One millisecond end to end round trip delay
1000X bandwidth per unit area
10 to 100X numbers of connected device
(Perception of) 100 percent coverage
(perception of) 99.999 percent availability
90 percent reduction in network energy usage
Up to ten-year battery life for low power, machine-type device.
