5G Technology | Benefits | Challenges | Specification

5G Technology refers to the fifth generation technology which was started in late 2010. 5G is the latest cellular mobile communications. It succeeds the 4G, 3G, and 2G systems. So the 5G technology is not the next version of mobile communication, evolving from 1G to 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G.

The new 5G technology has been driven by specific uses and applications. 5G performance that the target of high data rate, reduced latency, energy saving, higher system capacity, cost reduction etc.

5G technology provides a far higher level of performance than the previous generations of mobile communications systems. Complete wireless communication with almost no limitations, and it is highly supportable to Wireless World Wide Web ( WWWW ) includes far better levels of connectivity and coverage. 

Benefits of 5G Technology : 

  • Connectivity speed - 25 Mbps
  • High Speed, High Capacity, High Bandwidth
  • 5G is More Effective and More Attractive
  • Highly supportable to WWWW (wireless World Wide Web)
  • Providing large broadcasting of data in Gbps
  • Multi-Media Newspapers, watch T.V programs with clarity (HD Quality)
  • Faster data transmission than that of the 3G and 4G technology
  • Large Phone Memory, Dialing Speed, clarity in Audio/Video
  • Support interactive multimedia and streaming video
  • High resolution and large bandwidth sharing 
  • It supports a virtual private network 
  • Responsible for handling user mobility. 

Challenges of 5G Technology : 

  • One of the big challenges facing 5G is standardization that is free from obstacles of the earlier generations requires an integration of various standards.
  • No common architecture for interconnecting various engineering practices. 
  • It is a huge task, with the issue around spectrum and installing new antennas. 
  • 5G rely on at least in part, on higher frequency bands.
  • Aims to distribute internet access to nodes across the world with almost seamless speed.
  • The 5G wireless internet networks are a real wireless world which shall be supported by MC-CDMA, UWB, CDMA, and OFDM.

5G specification Level :

  • Network capacity - 10000 times the current network 
  • Peak data rate -10 Gbps 
  • Cell edge data rate - 100 Mbps 
  • Latency - <1 Mbps
