How is 5G different from 4G and when will it be launched?
4G is doing great now. However, by the time the Internet of things gets bigger, 4G will not be able to manage such a huge number of devices and ensure high speed connection to all its users. Specialists expect that by 2020, there will be more than twenty billion connected devices, not only computers and phones but also cars, drones, medical equipment, smart homes devices, captors ..etc. And all of these devices must be able to connect and exchange information with high data rate. Such capacity and connectivity cannot be ensured by 4G. And this is why 5G will come in handy.
5G is a very promising technology, it will allow us to:
· Use new frequency bands:
The frequency spectrum is a primordial ressource in telecommunications. 2G, 3G and 4G operate on bands located below the 3 GHz spectrum. 5G forecasts the use of bands above 6 GHz in addition to the traditional and the 3 GHz to 6 GHz bands.
· Deliver services in function of the use cases:
As I said before, 5G must be able to manage different types of devices for different types of services. And it will be smart enough to know how much capacity and connectivity is needed for each service, this will avoid the use of ressources on services that demand minimal coverage quality. Example: captor networks that are composed of a high number of devices exchanging low number of data packets will be allocated an adequate capacity and data rate.
· Ensure a very low latency for real time communications:
Latency is the time that passes from the moment an information is sent till it can be used by the receiver. Reducing latency became a primordial concern as modern communications are needed to be real-time, and 5G can satisfy this demand by accelerating the data processing on each node in the network.
· Innovate the network access techniques:
All of 2G, 3G and 4G devices must be connected to bases (BTS, NodeB, and eNodeB in respect to each technology) in order to benefit from the mobile network service, these bases are the antennas that you see on the top of the buildings. 5G will use connected devices as relays, it means that you will be able to connect to the network by transmitting you data to another 5G device which will route it to the base. this will allow more capacity and deeper coverage.
Even though the 5G is not standardized yet, many efforts are put on place by the equipment manifacturers like Nokia and Huawei in order to develop techniques that will make this new technology meet what we expect from it.
The combination of evolution and revolution, small and wide networks will allow the users to benefit from fast connection and real time communications never experienced before.
