 Where is 5G being used?

Broadly speaking, 5G is used across three main types of connected services, including enhanced mobile broadband,mission-critical communications, and the massive IoT. A defining capability of 5G is that it is designed for forward compatibility—the ability to flexibly support future services that are unknown today enhanced mobile broadbandIn addition to making our smartphones better, 5G mobile technology can usher in new immersive experiencessuch as VR and AR with faster, more uniform data rates, lower latency, and lower cost-per-bit.Mission-critical communications5G can enable new services that can transform industries with ultra-reliable, available, low-latency links like remote control of critical infrastructure, vehicles, and medical procedures.Massive IoT5G is meant to seamlessly connect a massive number of embedded sensors in virtually everything through the ability to scale down in data rates, power, and mobility—providing extremely lean and low-cost connectivity solutions.

How do consumers use 5G?

The average consumer is expected use close to 11 GB of data per month on their smartphone in 2022.2 This is driven by explosive growth in video traffic as mobile is increasingly becoming the source of media and entertainment, as well as the massive growth in always-connected cloud computing and experiences.4G completely changed how we consume information. In the past decade we have witnessed leaps and bounds in themobile app industry around services such as video streaming, ride sharing, food delivery and more.5G will expand the mobile ecosystem to new industries. This will contribute to cutting-edge user experiences such as boundless extreme reality , seamless IoT capabilities, new enterprise applications, local interactive content and instant cloud access, to name a few.

How do businesses use 5G?

With high data speeds and superior network reliability, 5G will have a tremendous impact on businesses.The benefits of 5G will enhance the efficiency of businesses while also giving users faster access to more information.Depending on the industry, some businesses can make full use of 5G capabilities, especially those needing the high speed,low latency, and network capacity that 5G is designed to provide. For example, smart factories could use 5G to run industrialEthernet to help them increase operational productivity and precision.

How do cities use 5G?

Smart cities could use 5G in a variety of ways to transform the lives of people living in them—primarily providing greaterefficiencies like more connectivity between people and things, higher data speeds, and lower latency than ever before in areas like automotive safety, infrastructure, VR, and entertainment.

5G technology

                               In telecommunications, 5G is the fifth generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks, which cellular phone companies began deploying worldwide in 2019, and is the planned successor to the 4G networks which provide connectivity to most current cellphones.5G networks are predicted to have more than 1.7 billion subscribers worldwide by 2025, according to the GSM Association .Like its predecessors, 5G networks are cellular networks, in which the service area is divided into small geographical areas called cells. All 5G wireless devices in a cell are connected to the Internet and telephone network by radio waves through a local antenna in the cell. The main advantage of the new networks is that they will have greater bandwidth, giving higher download speeds, eventually up to 10 gigabits per second ( Gbit /s).Due to the increased bandwidth, it is expected the networks will increasingly be used as general internet service providers for laptops and desktop computers, competing with existing ISPs such as cable internet, and also will make possible new applications in internet of things and machine to machine areas. 4G cellphones are not able to use the new networks, which require 5G enabled wireless devices.

                            The increased speed is achieved partly by using higher-frequency radio waves than previous cellular networks . However, higher-frequency radio waves have a shorter useful physical range, requiring smaller geographic cells. For wide service, 5G networks operate on up to three frequency bands – low, medium, and high. A 5G network will be composed of networks consisting of up to three different types of cells, each requiring specific antenna designs as well as providing a different tradeoff of download speed to distance and service area. 5G cellphones and wireless devices connect to the network through the highest speed antenna within range at their location.

Mobile Technology

Mobile technology is exactly what the name indicates – technology that is portable; it refers to any device that you can carry with you to perform a wide variety of “tasks”.  It is technology that allows those tasks to be performed via cellular phone, PDA, vehicles, laptops, etc.  A standard mobile device has gone from being no more than a simple two-way pager to being a cellular phone, a GPS navigation system, a web browser, and instant messenger system, a video gaming system, and much more. It includes the use of a variety of transmission media such as:  radio wave, microwave, infra-red, GPS and Bluetooth to allow for the transfer of data via voice, text, video, 2-dimensional barcodes and more.
