5G the Future of Connectivity

5G the Future of connectivity

Don’t you agree that the future depends on connectivity? Whether artificial intelligence or self-driving cars, mixed reality, and everything in between makes our lives easier and safer will require high-speed internet connectivity. There is a need to keep up with the booming of new connected gadgets, vehicles, streaming videos, and so much more. This is where 5G comes into play.

It is said that 5G will bring speed of 10 gigabytes per second to your mobile device. To put it into perspective, 5G will be 600 times faster than today’s 4G speed. It is also 10x faster than Google fiber home broadband services and even fast enough to download a 4K high definition movie in just 25 seconds!

With 5G rolling out, this high-speed connectivity will finally arrive in consumer’s pockets. It goes without saying that the new generation of technology has opened many new telecommunications service opportunities. The arrival of 5G has no doubt been the talk of the town. But there is so much more to 5G than just mobile devices.

As the number of internet-connect cars, environmental sensors, thermostats, and other gadgets take over the market, 5G connectivity should be able to serve them all in real-time. Therefore, in this article, we help you understand the potential of 5G and how it plays a role in the future of connectivity.

The Future with 5G Connectivity

The 5G connectivity is bound to bring a dramatic transformation in the future of technology.

1. IoT


One of the main aspects of 5G connectivity is the fact that it will have a huge impact on IoT or the Internet of Things. Even though there are many sensors and devices that can communicate with one another, they need multiple resources. These resources, in fact, are, on the contrary, instantly draining LTE data capacity. And this has proved to be a challenge.

However, 5G connectivity brings unbeatable speed and low-latency connectivity to every household. This means that your smart devices can easily be replaced with dumb terminals. These terminals will then receive commands from computing systems that are closer to them. In other words, it will be quite easier for you to control smart devices like kitchen appliances, climate control systems, or even health monitors in your household. In addition to this, there is very strong speculation that everything that is now being performed by IoT will be completely replaced with 5G connectivity in the future.

Note: Latency, in general terms, is the time that a device takes to respond to other devices over a network. 5G connectivity gives a promise of faster response time, which could mean a lot for home security or alert systems.

2. Smaller cell Infrastructure

Smaller cell infrastructure

It comes as no surprise that 5G also cuts costs for its operators. This is because 5G uses a smaller transmitter as it consumes lesser power and energy. However, there is a downside to this. As compared to 4G towers, 5G transmitters can service only a few areas. Therefore, telecom carriers feel the need to have an abundance of 5G transmitters so they can be integrated better within the existing telecommunication landscape or ecosystem.

If this has got you confused as to how 5G is better, then there is no better example than AT&T. Very briefly, AT&T had initially marketed a network that is called 5G E. they claimed that this 5G network reaches 205 million people and offers speeds that are similar to or faster than its LTE. But then, why is the availability so weak? To understand this better, we recommend reading the AT&T case study in detail.

3. Better Health care

5G Healthcare

Now that you know what low-latency is, it would be easy to understand how this component of the 5G network can revolutionize the world of health care globally. URLLC or Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication will bring a vast transformation in the overall world of mobile technology. Patients from rural areas will no longer need to change their lifestyle or move to cities only to get the kind of medical care and treatment they deserve.

What’s more is that there will also be a drastic change in precision surgery, telemedicine, remote surgery, physical therapy through augmented reality or AR, and so much more. The MMTC or Massive Machine-Type Communication will play a crucial role and help hospitals create massive sensor networks that can be used to monitor patients, habits, behaviors, and other activities. These sensors can be used in wearables, smartphones, and other connected devices. Even physicians will be able to prescribe medicines to track compliances. Additionally, even insurance sectors will be allowed to keep track of processes and treatments, thereby bidding goodbye to tiresome rounds of documentations.

4. Autonomous Vehicles

5G Vehicles

Ever imagined communicating with other vehicles? With the arrival of 5G, you can witness the rise of autonomous vehicles. Therefore, in the near future, your vehicle will have the potential and capability to think on its own and give you performance updates, information about automakers near you, warning about road conditions, monitor security, and so much more.

5. Improved Broadband

5G Speed

There is absolutely no doubt that the way we interact with technology is about to change massively. And this change is important if you want to be a mobile broadband user. In some areas, however, companies are already moving out of LTE capacity. And in fact, in many cities, consumers are experiencing slow internet speed. This is why 5G connectivity will be used for commercial broadband traffic as well.

To Wrap it up

It is quite evident that 5G is the future of connectivity, and it will change the way we consume information. Not only that, but it will also bring in a huge transformation in the way we communicate with each other. Even though many companies have successfully adapted the change to 5G capable carriers, there is still time for proper availability.

5G will soon be the optimum solution for those who wish to stream 8K video in a flash and download feature-length movies in matters of seconds. It also brings in crystal-clear video calls and rich-graphic mobile games with no lags.
