Although 5G relies on existing network infrastructure and concepts, there are several new features to 5G. Such features-new radio (NR) and new core 5GC, operation in high spectrum bands mmWave with massive MIMO antenna systems.» Read more
Mobile Broadband addresses the human-centric use cases for access to multi-media content, services and data.
The demand for mobile broadband will continue to increase, leading to enhanced Mobile Broadband.
The enhanced Mobile Broadband usage scenario will come with new application areas and requirements in addition to existing Mobile Broadband applications for improved performance and an increasingly seamless user experience. This usage scenario covers a range of cases, including wide-area coverage and hotspot, which have different requirements.» Read more
The 5G wireless communications will be driven by three use cases of enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine-type communication, and ultra-reliable low latency communication.
The enhanced mobile broadband is designed for high bandwidth internet access suitable for web browsing, video streaming, and virtual reality.
The massive machine-type communication is responsible for establishing narrow band Internet applications such as narrowband IoT.
The ultra-reliable low latency communication facilitates certain delay-sensitive applications such as factory automation, remote surgery and autonomous driving.» Read more
The use cases, and vision of the 5G system lead to diverse requirements that the future mobile broadband system will need to meet.
The 5G unified ecosystem will serve both traditional as well as potential new applications like drones, real time video surveillance, mobile augmented and virtual reality, Internet of Things and so on.» Read more
In recent years there have been several views about the ultimate form that 5G wireless technology should take.
There have been two views of what 5G should be:
Hyper connected view
and Next generation radio-access technology
5G is used across three main types of connected services, including enhanced mobile broadband, mission-critical communications, and the massive machine communications.
A defining capability of 5G is that it is designed for forward compatibility the ability to flexibly support future services that are unknown today.» Read more
There are several reasons that 5G will be better than 4G:
5G is significantly faster than 4G.
delivering up to 20 Gigabits-per-second peak data rates and more than 100 Megabits-per-second average data rates. 5G has more capacity than 4G.
5G is designed to support a multiple of 100 increase in traffic capacity and network efficiency.» Read more
5G is the 5th generation mobile network.
It is a new global wireless standard after first G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks.
5G enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices.» Read more
