As we all know that 5g is the next generation network protocol for faster speed and connectivity with the smart things and components at home or in the car. The 5G next generation technology is faster then the 4G. 4G was supposed to max out at 100 Mbps and 5G is specked to max out at 10 Gbps. 1 Gbps is equal to 1000 Mbps. 5g is not only faster but also more consistent technology that keeps the phones and other devices connected more securely and firmly as far as loosing connectivity and dropped call goes. If 5g were to be used in connected everything vision the technology companies have been developing for all these years then a reliable technology that lives will depend up on has to be a necessary platform and for that to happen 5g is a must. Internet is getting more crucial to the way we conduct business and to be connected 24×7 is a must for us to leap forward. Everything from cars, smart homes, smart watches, home security equipment and even smart cloths. 3g was great for mobile data, texts and such things, 4g did mobile and internet for chats, emails, videos etc but 5g is what we need for autonomous cars, home security, smart health for your doctor to monitor a patient. Some of the speed features are mind boggling that a round trip for a data to be sent a receives in less then 1 millionth of a second. 1000’s of connected devices being connected all at the same time and this is one of the crucial feature that will change the world as we know it. The 1 Gbps of data service to each user simultaneously is a tremendous task.
Just to give you an idea as to how fast the 5g technology actually is :
A movie that is 2h long in HD quality on a 3G will download in 26 hours
On 4G it will take 6 minutes, which if you think is too long, you are in for a treat on the 5g!
It is the amount of time it takes a request (from a cell phone) to a server that is hosting lets say whats app to get sent and a response received .
On 3G it takes 100 milliseconds
On 4g about 60 milliseconds
On 5g it ca be done in 1ms to 10ms which is less the the time it takes to blink your eye. With this technology the real time applications like autonomous vehicle can actually become a practical application and you can see the potential this opes us up to.
However all this positive news is also bogged down with radiation issues that the 5g has been bombarded with and time will tell how all this plays out.
