At this time, the world of technology does not stop innovations. After 4G, 5G is currently being launched to the delight of technophiles.
The freshness of the fifth-generation network is currently of interest to millions of users around the world, especially in Europe. It is a great novelty in wireless communication. The major operators in the field announced its implementation a few months ago. Currently, it is partially operational and users are beginning to discover the benefits of its use.
Focus on 5G
5G or the fifth-generation wireless network is the result of research into improving its precursor, 4G. In addition to the mobile Internet, the IoT technology is the great novelty brought by 5G. From a technical point of view, its speed reaches 10Gbits/second, which is one hundred times faster than its predecessor. It also allows to connect more devices and offers a maximum coverage. The 5G also meets the requirements of those who use LANs and WANs with a decent speed. Its strength also lies in the fact that this network consumes very little energy with a low bandwidth.
How 5G works
The fifth generation of mobile communication is based on 4G technology. However, several points differentiate these two generations of mobile networks. In other words, 5G is an update of the existing technology, as it uses the frequencies of 4G for the time being. Therefore, if you have a 5G device, it is quite possible to enjoy a better and more stable speed than a 4G device while remaining on the same frequency. Unlike 4G, 5G allows you to connect more and more devices such as computers, new generations of vehicles and other devices that are essential to business life.
What about the frequencies used by 5G?
On the frequency side, 5G has two main sets known as FR1 and FR2. In FR1, the frequency is rather low with less than 6GHz, hence the label 5G sub-6. In FR2, this frequency is very high and has a wavelength of one millimeter. With this variety of frequency, the millimeter waves of 5G offer a theoretical throughput that can exceed 15Gbit/second. The frequencies used by this new network also allow to reduce latency to a maximum in order to offer a maximum of comfort to the users of connected devices. The reduction of latency will thus offer a more reactive and fluid navigation thanks to the technology that remains the most important at the moment which is 5G.
