Wireless connectivity is now an important prat of modern life. And now we are moving a new digital technology named 5G.

That question is harder to answer than you might think, as there’s currently no definition around which technology identify as 5G – nor are there any common global standards. Although they are being worked on.
5G is the next big stage in the evolution of consensus, supported by the GSMA, is that there will be two major strands: an evolutionary piece aimed at making all existing and future mobile technologies including WiFi – play nicely together,and the revolutionary piece,which is focused on massive speed and low latency.

The specific criteria may differ from source to source, but they all point to the same types of improvement: greater speeds, better capacity,  more reliability, enhanced efficiency and reduce latency. There’s certainly a lot of promise.
In terms of figures, the GSMA suggests 5G networks will offer bandwidth throughput as high as 1GB/S or 1 gbps and beyond, with latency as low as one millisecond. This would enable a host of new services, including autonomous driving, augmented reality and virtual reality.

These thoughts are aligned with the definitions of International Telecommunications Union which expects 5G to enable to application mentioned above as well as enhanced industry automation, cloud service, smart cities and smart buildings. International Telecommunications Union has also defined three main characteristics for 5G which are following :–

  • Enhanced mobile characteristics
  • Massive machine-type communication 
  • Ultra-Reliable and low latency communications.
