5G Training, 5G System Survey Training
Nearly a year after the initial rollout of 5G in the U.S., the grand promise of 5G wireless service with connection speeds 10 times as fast as the speediest home broadband service is slowly moving closer to reality.
The problem is that it will take several years for carriers to build out their infrastructure to handle maximum 5G speeds. Meanwhile carriers are relying on a makeshift 5G using different radio frequencies to deliver 5G services.
The infrastructure consists mainly of small cell towers, an essential part of a 5G network needed to relay information between devices.
A 5G small cell is very different from its predecessor 4G towers referred to as macrocells. Since 5G towers don’t require much power, they can be made relatively small. A 5G cell tower is basically just a small box. While this is how most 5G implementations are turning out, some companies are burying antennas under manhole covers to extend their mobile network through the streets.
Inside a small cell is radio equipment necessary for transmitting data to and from connected devices. The antennas within the small cell are highly directional and use what’s called beamforming to direct attention to very specific areas around the tower.
Typically, small cell installations involve 20 to 25 small cells per square mile.
In a sense, you could think of 5G as “evolving.”
Basically, 5G can currently be divided into two camps in the U.S.: standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA). These are the two 5G tracks that communication service providers can opt for when transitioning from 4G to the next-generation mobile technology.
Standalone 5G deploys a 5G core and a New Radio fifth Generation NodeB. This deployment offers the full feature set of 5G: Network Slicing, eMBB, mMTC and URLLC. Option 2 is not backward compatible to 4G.
Non-standalone 5G utilizes a 4G EPC with a 5G NodeB (gNB). This option is most popular for mobile operators looking to quickly deploy 5G speeds utilizing existing LTE deployments. However, the NSA option does not allow for true 5G NR features, such as Network Slicing, URLLC and high capacity support for IoT, such as mMTC.
Businesses as well as consumers are patiently waiting for a fully developed 5G wireless network in the U.S.
The great majority of companies have indicated they intend to make significant changes to their businesses in order to take maximum advantage of 5G as the rollout continues into year No. 2.
Telecom companies are expected to invest as much as $275 billion into 5G infrastructure before 2025.
