The vastly enhanced performance of 5G will bring benefits far beyond faster streaming and improved entertainment or gaming. Set to alter the way we navigate our daily lives, this advance marks a paradigm shift, not merely a generational one
5G is based on OFDM (Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing), a method of modulating a digital signal across several different channels to reduce interference. … 5G also uses wider bandwidth technologies such as sub-6 GHz and mmWave. Like 4G LTE, 5G OFDM operates based on the same mobile networking principles.
5G Transforming Mobility
While 4G is available and fully ready for adoption now, 5G allows for scale and will make your continued digital transformation deployment even better. All the Tier One carriers have different strategies and timelines for their 5G deployments. With nearly weekly announcements, operators around the globe are full steam ahead on 5G launches. Ericsson predicts that there will be 1.9 billion 5G subscriptions by 2024 with 5G coverage, reaching 45 percent of the global population during that timeframe.
As a mobile technology, 5G is both an evolution and a revolution. As an evolution, 5G uses radio spectrum – or the radio waves used to transmit bits of data – more efficiently, resulting in higher network speeds when compared to 4G in the same spectrum. 5G also has advanced security features built into the architecture and supports greater connection density, which is especially important for certain IoT services.
