In this age where technology is changing at the exponential rates, wireless technology for digital cellular networks has been enhancing today’s mobile broadband services with each new generation. And now the company that brought us 3G and 4G are now leading the world to 5G. But to be precise, what is the 5G network? Here, we talk about that.
So, what exactly is 5G network? And why should you care about it?
5G is the 5th generation mobile network which will take a much larger role than previous generations. 5G will deliver multi-Gbps peak rates, ultra-low latency for faster responsiveness, massive capacity, and more uniform user experience. 5G is certain to make your smartphone experience better with faster and uniform data rates and lower cost per bit.
5G is Really Fast: 10 -100 times faster than 4G
5G is expected to deliver peak data rates up to 20 Gbps. Qualcomm Technologies’ first 5G NR modem, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X50 5G modem, is designed to achieve up to 5 Gbps in a downlink peak data rate. At these speeds, you could download a full-length feature film in seconds. If it’s to be compared with the existing 4G network, 5G is a unified platform that is more capable than 4G, 5G uses spectrum better than 4G, 5G is faster than 4G, 5G has more capacity than 4G & 5G has lower latency than 4G. It will also usher in new immersive experiences, such as VR and AR which will provide new opportunities for people and businesses to be creative.

Virtually every major telecommunication service provider in the developed world is deploying antennas or intends to deploy them soon. The frequency spectrum of 5G is divided into millimeter waves, mid-band, and low-band. Low-band uses a similar frequency range as the predecessor, 4G. Though there’s a controversy surrounding its usage of the higher band and shorter frequency electromagnetic radiation, there is no scientific evidence that these radio waves will constitute a health risk.
