4G high-speed technology is used worldwide to text, call, and surf the internet. But, there are rumors that superior technology is going to replace it and the new one will have the potential to transform the world in a better way.

You guessed it right, we are talking about the 5G technology.

What is 5G Technology?

5G is an SDN (Software-Defined Networking) network – it will eliminate the need for cables by operating mainly on the cloud. This means that it will have a capacity that will be 100x bigger than 4G.

5G technology will be a game-changer for the reason that it will not only connect you with the world but will permit you to connect everything and everyone virtually including machines, objects, and devices.

How Will 5G Technology Affect the World?

How long does it take to download a 3-hour film?

If you use a 4G connection, it could take between 5-6 minutes to download a 3-hour long film. But, with 5G technology, that movie will be downloaded in just 3 and a half seconds.

Let’s not restrict 5G technology to internet connectivity only, the response timing will be much faster than before as well. It is believed that this technology will take around one millisecond to respond to your commands of any sort.

Real-Time Execution of 5G Technology

The United States is heavily investing in smart city technology, for example, the street lights will automatically dim when there’s no one on the roads. The project is initiated in San Diego to control electricity costs by installing smart light systems saving up to $2 million per year.

It is believed that by using 5G technology, the traffic and power could be managed well and it will save cities $160 billion, as per a survey.

Thanks to 5G technology, cities will become smarter and better to live in. A lot will happen in the next 10 years such as energy costs will decrease, the traffic will flow faster. In short, 5G technology will make you realize the true potential of IoT.

As per the 15th Feb 2021 report, Nokia and Brazil’s telecommunication research and development centers will work on 5G technology solutions to transform the future of Brazil.

“We look forward to a fruitful and successful partnership with Nokia and look forward to introducing a range of innovative 5G-based use cases to the market,”

Frederico Nava, director of solutions and consulting at CPQD

Interesting Information

The Samsung Galaxy A52 5G technology phone is expected to arrive real soon. The ultra 5G connection will beat the speeds of 4G LTE, with a hyper-fast, low latency connection.

A Jump from 3G to 5G

5G technology will exist side-by-side 4G networks with a mission to expand the coverage, but it will also exist as a standalone technology to provide faster responses and deliveries.

Are you wondering when is this technology going to change your lives for good? The simple answer is it may be doing that already.

If your 4G LTE is working the best in your area, you may be getting a 5G signal out of it. Because, the feel of 5G technology isn’t all that different from LTE, currently.

So far, Verizon has bragged the best speed by far saying that their 5G ultra wideband can give 25x faster connectivity service than any other network could provide.

Top Companies Leading 5G Technology

Talking about the corporations that are heavily invested in 5G, one cannot forget that Samsung was the first to sit at the core of the 5G domain. Huawei comes second as it has been investing heavily in wireless communication technology.

The most famous Korean company LG has successfully scored the third position and earned a good reputation by conducting some noteworthy research activities in the 5G technology.

Final Words

Countless studies are present today that depict the impact of 5G technology and the Internet of Things (IoT), several case studies are there that focus on the core values that this tech can offer to you.

Talking about connectivity, 1G was mainly about voice, 2G was about voice and texting, 3G focused on both voice and text along with data as an add-on service.

Today, we have 4G that is considered the fastest of all and offers enough speed to download anything in HD.

In the future, we will have 5G that will outperform 4G and past networks and it will be fast enough to download a movie in 3 seconds and spacious enough to store your lifetime data without running out of memory.
