4G and 5G are terms that we hear every single day from people from all age groups. Be it little kids who are hooked on to mobile phones to watch their favorite cartoons, to individuals from the industry who are rigorously waiting for 5G to come. A buzzword that has been doing its rounds across countries and continents for years now.
With evolution, it’s a no-brainer that connectivity and networking have drastically evolved and made their impact on individuals, enterprises, and the economy. Starting from years ago, where 1G meant the ability to make calls to where we are today, 4G brought intelligence to our lives. With every “G”, communication is greatly being modified and enhanced. That being said, there is a lot riding on 5G (no pressure).
But all that being said and done. As much as we are all eagerly waiting for the arrival of 5G, there is still a little uncertainty as to what will be different? The clarity around what exactly is exclusive or new which 4G does not have right now.
Let’s deep dive into what is 5G brings with itself that we don’t already have.
Network Connection Speed
Yet another no-brainer that with 5G will come connection speed. Though said that 4G has the capability to reach 100mbps, but in actuality, the speed is not more than 35mbps. Whereas, 5G has the potential to be a 100 times faster than 4G.
Latency or the amount of time it takes for a packet of information to travel. 5G aims to have a significantly reduced latency, along with having a more optimized and well adjusted level of network architecture.
Today, 4G is present in predominantly every major city across countries. But there are still remote locations which do not get proper connectivity. 5G, though still non-existent in many areas, aims to have a wider coverage.
5G is said to have a much wider and broader spectrum of bandwidth, allowing for a traffic-free space, increasing it’s reach up to 400Mhz, as compared to 4G. in turn, providing more speed and frequency range.
There are a lot more reasons why 5G is and will be more efficient as compared to 4g, but for that we will still have to wait for 5G to start functioning in our respective countries.
