5G The Next Technology
The next big thing in wireless technology networking is 5G. It is the fifth generation of wireless technology, to put it simply. Technology in its fifth generation is anticipated to be more advanced, faster, and larger. The purpose of 5G architecture is to connect everything and everyone, including people, buildings, cities, sensors, smartphones, robots, and drones. It is design is built on a significantly higher next-generation technology plane. It will be more advanced than current wireless technology in terms of data speeds, latency, system capacity, energy efficiency, and cost savings. For society and industry, it will bring new capabilities and opportunities.
What can the 5G network do?
Think of a world where everything is interconnected—people, technology, structures, and infrastructure. In this world, you may shop and watch live sporting events in virtual reality, while cars can drive themselves and interact with you. Doctors can even perform procedures from a great distance away.
We’re not discussing a sci-fi movie right now, so open your eyes. Our world will instead become unimaginably hyperconnected, secure, and immersive as a result of 5G.
What characterizes 5G?
With current technology like 4G, we have mostly thought of connectedness as being between humans or between humans and the internet. But with 5G, that won’t be sufficient any longer.
The next logical step in connectivity is to link not just commonplace machines and gadgets to people, but also other machines. In fact, connecting every aspect of our environment to one another is the core promise of 5G! Term like Internet of Things (IoT), Virtual Reality (VR), and Artificial Intelligence will no longer be merely speculative connotations of what will happen in the future, with the number of connected devices globally anticipated to triple by 2030 to 25.4 billion. On the strength of 5G, all these incredible experiences will become available.
How is 5G superior to 4G?
Consider 5G as a new, more advanced technology rather than the logical next step in the evolution of 4G.
Small cells will be used in 5G instead of cell towers, which were employed in earlier generations. Carriers will therefore spread out the deployment of high band 5G tiny cells. Additionally, 5G technology is designed to utilize 100 to 800 MHz channels rather than the 20 MHz of 4G as part of its OFDM coding. Keep in mind that the download speed increases with the channel level. As a result, 5G is 20 times quicker than the prior generation, has significantly lower latency, and has significantly increased reliability. A greater number of users can connect at once, and faster downloads are made possible by decreased latency.
Where are 5G networks used?
- Smart cities and smart buildings will enable civic authorities to efficiently manage operations by collecting data from IoT (Internet of Things) sensors on air quality, energy use, and traffic patterns for cities. Emergency vehicles will be able to connect to destinations without interruption, smart buildings will have essential utilities without interruption, and connected buildings will normalize remote working!
- Manufacturing sector: AI will analyze massive amounts of data being gathered to automate human processes like quality control, standardization, accuracy checking, and so forth. Smart businesses will be able to use robots for risky/repetitive jobs thanks to end-to-end automation enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT)
3. Agriculture and the environment: Connected devices will transform data on weather patterns, crop health, chemical concentrations, and insect presence to enable efficient labor allocation, cost and waste reduction, and increased yield. Ecological balance restoration in reachable areas and environmental monitoring of both flora and wildlife will be a reality.
4. Virtual reality will become more practical, enabling remote working from distant areas or a genuine live sports stadium experience at home. Virtual reality will also be more useful for entertainment and live event experiences. The emergence of virtual shopping in several cities around the world would make downloading offline entertainment unnecessary.
When will 5G arrive in India?
In order to prepare the essential ecosystem for the roll-out, all industry stakeholders in the nation are currently actively engaging, including 5G infrastructure businesses in India. The Department of Telecom is concentrating its research and development efforts on PPP projects, testbeds, pilot rollouts, and standardization. They are also promoting partnerships between start-ups and ICT enterprises while collaborating with TRAI and other stakeholders on a framework for spectrum management. Indian telcos and OEMs are also doing feasibility studies for deployment at the same time. In order to enable this new era of connection, the Indian IT industry has developed its own set of applications and solutions. India wants to grow its fibre backbone to 2.5 million km by 2022, with 300,000 km of fibre planned under the BharatNet programme for rural areas, in order to increase reach and distance.
