Google’s next big innovation is the development of the 5G cellular network. This will allow the transmission of smooth 4K video on a new class of smartphone. It will also allow users to navigate between cities using an unoccupied car, and play virtual football tournaments in real time. It is not just for consumer technology, though. It is primarily for telco engineers.
The new 5G cellular network is fast and responsive, and a major leap forward from previous generations. With peak data speeds of 20 GB/s, 5G is expected to connect virtually everything. This will allow data to move at multigigabit speeds, and users will be able to stream content in real time without experiencing latency. Ultimately, 5G will allow wireless systems to deliver more data to more users than ever before.
5G will enable operators to’slice’ the physical network into separate virtual networks. This will allow operators to provide different slices of the network to different customers, and can accommodate more demanding applications at once. 5G will enable fixed wireless applications to work with 5G, providing fibre-like experiences to users. It will also enable improved broadband service in remote areas. There are even some experts who believe the peak speed of 5G could hit 10Gps.
Although the 5G cellular network is not yet ready for widespread use, it is expected to change the way we live. The world will be a much more connected place – both for consumers and businesses. The 5G network will enable businesses and metropolitan organizations to collaborate and make real-time decisions while simultaneously reducing energy consumption and promoting a greener planet. In addition to improving business collaboration and metropolitan communications, 5G will improve energy consumption.
