The 5G architecture everyone has been waiting for is almost here.
Recent testing shows that 5G really is capable of some crazy speeds and near zero latency. The reason most customers haven’t experienced that yet is:
- It takes a lot of time, effort and money to build out a global wireless telecommunications standards.
- There hasn’t been enough of the high-band radio frequency to go around.
Make no doubt about it, the star of 5G technology is the millimeter wave (mmWave), which resides in the high-band frequency. Carriers have had a difficult time featuring mmWave-driven 5G because of infrastructure dependencies and the lack of high-band access, which is allotted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
However, this is about to change with 5G only infrastructures in place (known as standalone 5G) and the FCC’s promise to auction off more high-band real estate.
Until now, commercial 5G network deployments have had to leverage existing 4G infrastructure yielding a 5G that provides somewhat faster speeds and more reliable connections but little else in the way of 5G’s original promise.
But in 2021 the major carriers will be launching the standalone version of 5G that doesn’t depend on earlier architectures.
The SA 5G version, which does not lean on LTE, allows an operator to address massive machine-to-machine communications, or ultrareliable low latency IoT. It also provides network slicing functionality.
Standalone 5G as a key enabler of advanced use cases like autonomous vehicles, smart manufacturing, remote surgery and the “internet of senses.”
If your organization has been putting off 5G training, now might be a good time to learn all you can.
Cutting the strings with its predecessor architectures means 5G SA will be offering organizations benefits and profit-making potential never seen before because the technical differences between 5G SA and 5G non standalone (NSA) are so different.
Where NSA 5G has provided control signaling of 5G to the 4G base station, in SA the 5G base station is directly connected to the 5G core network and the control signaling does not depend on the 4G network.
In simple terms, NSA is like adding a solid-state drive to an old computer, which can improve the system’s performance, while SA is like replacing it with a new computer that has newer technologies and optimum performance.
SA 5G involves a 5G core with SBA for scalability and flexibility to deliver a superfast network with ultra-low latency for advanced 5G use cases.
The three major usage scenarios defined for 5G SA by the 3GPP and GSMA include:
- Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB)
- Ultra-reliable and low latency communications (URLLC)
- Massive machine-type communications (mMTC)
In other words, the level of reliability and latency that standalone 5G will provides is indispensable for handling smart-grid control machines, industrial automation, robotics, remote surgery, drone control and coordination and much more.
Global mobile data traffic is expected to multiply by five time before the end of 2024. Truth is, older 4G technology won’t cut it, particularly in dense urban areas.
Training is essential for CEOs and their teams because 5G is allowing industries to reinvent themselves.
5G Transforms Lives
5G architecture can make a difference in our lives in so many different ways. Take improved accessibility. Connected appliances can help automate tasks around the house, which cannot only improve personal convenience but also help those who need assistance with everyday tasks. 5G’s near zero latency also makes autonomous driving possible, creating new levels of personal and professional freedom.
Access to 5G technology also promises to improve mission-critical services that affect safety and security of services today. Opportunities include smart cities with 5G in public spaces, the potential for remote surgery, better traffic control and many other applications that depend on nearly instantaneous response time.
Then there’s the whole arena of extending the reach of mobile broadband. 5G can power technology well beyond what current mobile technology permits. Thanks to its speed and bandwidth, 5G promises to make significant improvements in 3D holograms, virtual reality and augmented reality, creating opportunities to connect people far beyond what current cellular technology allows.
Economically, just look what happened with 5G’s predecessor. The U.S. led the world in the adoption of 4G networks. Consequently, the financial benefits were tremendous. From 2011 to 2014 when 4G was launching, jobs related to the wireless industry grew 84%. Today, the industry supports 4.7 million jobs and contributes $475 billion to the economy each year.
Besides the economic impact, 5G is needed to support cultural changes and expectations.
The demand for data for example continues to grow as the number of devices connected to the internet grows. The number of smartphone users in the United States increased from nearly 63 million in 2010 to an estimated 259 million by 2018. By 2025 the total number of connected devices is projected to exceed 34 billion.

Why 5G Training Is A Great Investment
Investing in a little 5G Training can pay big dividends. Here’s why:
5G infrastructure is such a radical departure from past mobile broadband technologies that a whole new set of enablers are involved including NFV, SDN, new frequency spectrum, MIMO and small cell, lower power base stations.
When built-out, 5G will deliver a wide range of new services, applications, devices and enhanced mobile experience such as Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-reliable and Low-latency Communications (uRLLC), and Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC).
5G will also meet the demand for an increasingly digital lifestyle, and focus on services that have high requirements for bandwidth, such as high definition (HD) videos, virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR), digital industry and latency-sensitive services.
Companies that haven’t prepared their staff and stakeholders for the 5G revolution will be playing catch up for a very long time.
The market for 5G semiconductors alone will boom to nearly $19 billion by 2022 according to a Bank of America report.
But 5G will be instrumental for many other industries, including retail, entertainment, automotive, manufacturing and logistics. 5G networking will also help speed up tech advancements.
These advancements will enable connected cars and autonomous driving; smart cities with connected logistics, transport and infrastructure; enhancement in connected healthcare from robotics to blockchain use cases to wearable telemetry; industrial internet of things and smart factories.
