How Will 5G Technology Transform Our World?
Wireless technology has evolved significantly from the earlier 1G network days and is now over a thousand times faster and more effective than the current 4G technology. And with 5G, the world is standing on the brink of unleashing the fifth generation of cellular networks where the speeds are more than 100 times faster than even the 4G networks.
The 5G technology revolution is all set to change the way the world works for the better. It is going to transform the online landscape and create never-seen-before opportunities for businesses and individuals.
What is 5G?
The 5G technology is designed keeping in mind the need for greater speeds, larger bandwidths and next-to-zero latency. It runs on the same frequency waves currently being used by Wi-Fi networks, smartphones and satellite communications.
There has been a massive transformation of technology from the time of the 1G era. The phones those days were literally briefcase-sized and only short conversations between a select set of professionals were possible. With the advent of the 2G, the demand for mobile services grew and there’s been no looking back since! Pocket-sized phones, SMS and internet enabled-phones were the trademark of the 3G world. 4G saw smartphones, YouTube and the blossoming of social media. And now 5G is all set to reshape our personal and professional lives with transforming technologies.
5G goes beyond being able to download an HD movie onto your phone in mere seconds. It is the key to innovation in tomorrow’s future and could create avenues for improving public safety. The super-fast speeds and massive bandwidth of 5G networks can support high-quality videos and give public and road safety officials a so-real understanding of an emergency and act accordingly.
The 5G revolution is also going to impact the evolution of global businesses, leading to exponential growth, new products and services as well as an increase in productivity.
Futuristic services such as e-health, advanced mobile cloud gaming, connected vehicles and traffic systems will all be possible now. Reliable, high-speed 5G networks are a bonus for staying wirelessly connected with co-workers and other businesses through secure video conferencing across the globe too. As the 5G network spreads, greater opportunities for its application are expected to arise.
