After a huge success of 4G now people are waiting for the 5th generation of wireless technology and many telecoms operators are planning to launch 5G soon as they can to capture more share of the 5G market. This post will be a complete beginner’s guide of the 5G network.
As per many big techies, it is expected that 5G can be 100 to 1000 times faster as compared to 4G which is massive and this also shows that we can download a full HD movie in 2 minutes. But, it is obvious that the cost of 5G will be very high for 2-3 years.
So, in this post, I am going to tell you everything about 5G networks whether it is about, how it works or its speed.
What is 5G network?
5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology and the successor of 4G and LTE. It will be responsible for high speed, low latency and huge capacity.
It can possible to do 4K live streaming through 5G and you can also use to do 4K Video Recording at very low latency. And lot many other benefits are there of 5G networks.
5G will use MM(Mili Meter) technology and will transmit waves at the speed of 3GHz to 36GHz which means the range of the wave will low and need many small transmitters at every portion of the town for better speed and latency.
If there will be raining outside then 5G will not work properly as our DTHs do. Because of the speed of the waves and the waves of DTH are also up to 12GHz.
Mili-meter based waves can’t go through the walls or any obstacles either it will be absorbed or reflected another direction. So, necessary to have many transmitters.
As we know that 4G towers threw waves to any direction if it is necessary or not but 5G will sent waves to the particular person who is operating his mobile phone at that time.
How 5G Network works?
This is our speciality that we tell you that how does a thing work in simple words not only tells the definitions and advantages.
Sub-6GHz technology is similar than the technology used in 4G networks, on every certain distance a tower is placed which receives the data and transmit it. You can see a tower in your surroundings but the speed will be better because it is an upgraded generation of wireless technology.
Another will be Mili-Metre(MM) technology which will be very faster than Sub 6GHz technology, in this technology thousands of small towers having tiny transmitters will place at every corner of an area because Mili-metre waves can’t travel much distance as compared to another technology.
If anybody will operate the Network the nearest tower will start sending waves to it and start exchanging data with it because the tower will be very near and the MM waves are faster we’ll get faster speed and low latency.
This technology is fast but we will face issues due to rain and high humidity as we get in our DTHs because both have faster waves but we can do one thing more to tackle the problem that, we can associate many transmitters and receivers in the phone because they will be small in size so that we can get more waves to use.
But we will see many fixes of this in our future.
These two technologies will be responsible to integrate 5G networks in our area.
What is the speed of 5G?
The speed matters very much in the Internet era but if we talk about the speed of every generation of cellular technology then you will observe, “how we are growing in the field of Wireless technology”
Yes, the growth percentage of the speed improvements in every generation is quite impressing and impactful.
The first generation of the wireless cellular(1G) had the speed of maximum 2.4KBPS which is very slow and will take weeks to download a movie at this speed.
The second generation of wireless cellular technology(2G) had the maximum of speed 40KBPS which is far better than the first generation.
The third generation of cellular wireless technology(3G) had the speed of a maximum of 3.6 MBPS which is quite impressing but here I used maximum means it is very lower than the given number.
The fourth generation of Wireless technology(4G) had a maximum speed of 60 MBPS which is real-time speed and much lower in India than the USA because of many populations.
The fifth generation of cellular technology(5G) will have the maximum speed of up to 1GBPS and this is insane because nothing to say about this speed.
What is the latency of 5G?
Latency means that how much time does a wave takes to move across the network. This is a simple definition of Latency.
The second generation of cellular technology(2G) had the latency between 300-1000 MS.
The third generation of cellular technology(3G) had the latency between 100-500 MS.
The fourth generation of cellular technology(4G) had the latency of less than 100 MS which super effective.
The fifth generation of cellular technology(5G) had the latency of 1 MS which is insane because the tower will locate at very near to you and will run on Mili-Metre technology.
This is why we can play games of Google Stadia at 4K smoothly and can do 4K live streaming at once. The 5G network will be very insane and costly and the big thing to watch out is that how much people will buy 5G network and run.
Let’s look out the quick overview of this post:-
- 5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology and the successor of 4G and LTE. It will be responsible for high speed, low latency and huge capacity.
- The main motive to configure 5G network is to use advanced technology available in the future such as Auto-Driving cars, VR application ad bunch of others.
- 5G will use 2 technology to integrate into an area i,e. Sub-6Ghz Bands technology and Mili-Metre bands technology.
- The fifth generation of cellular technology(5G) will have the maximum speed of up to 1GBPS and this is insane because nothing to say about this speed.
- The fifth generation of cellular technology(5G) had the latency of 1 MS which is insane because the tower will locate at very near to you and will run on Mili-Metre technology.
