5G technology is definitely the next big thing in the world of network connectivity. Let us have a look at what the future holds.
Developments in 5G
5G is the fifth-generation mobile network. It is expected to deliver network speeds like never before, thus revolutionizing the way we perceive and experience the internet. With technology giants like Qualcomm, Ericsson and Verizon being at the forefront of the development of 5G, it is expected to achieve its full potential in the near future.
Benefits of 5G
Once 5G technology achieves its true potential, it is going to bring about significant changes in people’s lives. If 5G is what the future holds, owning a 5G mobile phone is probably the wisest decision one can make. Here are a few benefits of 5G technology.
- Better speed
5G is expected to have a download speed of 10 Gbps, which makes it ten times faster than the 300 Mbps offered by 4G networks. This will apply to the upload speeds as well. A feature film that could be downloaded in 7 minutes with 4G, would come down to a mere 6 seconds with 5G! This is a great example of how 5G technology will revolutionize our lives.
- Lower network latency
Network latency is defined as the time a set of data takes to travel from the source to the receiver. With lower network latency, 5G will help connect people to near-real-time data, thus leading to improved 3D imagery and hologram.
- Mobile VR and AR
With 5G reaching its full potential, and the network latency being lower than the time it takes to blink, VR and AR technologies in mobile phones are also set to reach new heights.
- Lower cost-per-bit
Although 5G is set to break network speed records, it will have lower costs per GB than 4G.
- No resolution barrier
Till now, connectivity often came in the way of enjoying our favorite movies and shows in Ultra HD. With the increased speed of 5G, such barriers are expected to dissolve completely.
