The Future Of 5G Technology

5G networks are a high-speed system that can theoretically reach a speed of 10 Gbps, or 66 times faster than the download speed of standard 4G LTE networks. 5G also promises lower latency at only 1ms, compared to 4G LTE at 50ms. The increased connection density of 5G technology supports up to one million connected devices per one square kilometre, compared to 4G LTE with only 2,000 connections in the same space. 5G promises many new future developments that will make our lives more convenient and productive.

With that in mind, we are going to take a look at the future of 5G technology:

IoT- because 5G ensures much higher data transfer rate and increased connection density, IoT (Internet of Things) is becoming a more practical technology. A regular 4G LTE network is inadequate to handle many IoT devices because the technology quickly drains resources. The much lower latency of 5G allows IoT devices to respond very quickly to new changes. A smart home may have more than 20 IoT devices that include smartphones, security cameras, smart TVs, climate control systems, kitchen appliances and wearables.

Edge Computing- edge computing is a more advanced technology compared to cloud computing. Also called fog computing, data processing of edge computing will take place near to the source, instead of remotely. The high speed and low latency of 5G network can simulate local processing of data. A combination of fast data processing, AI technology and low-latency 5G networks make real-time responses possible.

AR And VR Integration- a wearable that integrates AR and VR technologies will allow users to immerse better within their surroundings. With the introduction of 5G, data networks can finally catch up with today’s AR and VR technologies. It will be possible to fluidly use mixed reality in professional settings. Business professionals can get quick stocks information through their AR wearables. With VR, they can also gain real-time observations of industrial facility, venues, or construction site to know whether things run as planned.

Self-Driving Cars- self-driving cars are safer and more reliable if they are networked, instead of relying only on local data processing. The traffic management system can track the exact location of each car to prevent congestions and collisions. Combined with local sensors and AI technology, risks of accidents can be greatly minimised or eliminated.

Better Health Care- telecoms offering high-speed and low-latency networks may make it possible to do remote surgeries using robots. Once 5G networks supplant existing 4G LTE connections, doctors can provide more reliable healthcare to more patients.
