5G Wireless Crash Course
At its theoretical maximum speed, 5G is a hundred times faster than its predecessor 4G.
This is comparable to downloading a two-hour movie with 5G technology in only 3.6 seconds. This same movie takes six minutes to download with 4G, and 26 hours to download with 3G.
How did 5G get so fast?
5G takes advantage of a lot of technology to obtain such fast speeds. The whole new band of radio spectrum that 5G uses has a lot to do with it.
The base stations that relay the technology also factor into the speed equation. These base stations also use massive MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output). Massive MIMO uses dozens of antennas on a single base station. They also take advantage of beamforming to better direct those signals, directing the wireless signal in a beam pointing at the device and reducing interference for other devices.
Additionally, 5G base stations run at full duplex, which means they can transmit and receive at the same time, on the same frequency. With 4G, base stations have to switch between transmitting and listening modes, slowing things down.
The projected adoption rate for 5G differs drastically from all previous generation networks. While previous technology was driven by mobile internet usage and the availability of “killer apps,” 5G is mainly driven by new IoT usages, such as connected and self-driving cars, for example.
While still a work in progress, 5G wireless technology is about the make a big move later in 2020.
This is the time frame for some 5G networks to deploy standalone (SA) architecture. This is significant because in its first year of rollout, carriers have had to rely on a watered down version of 5G during buildout of the specialized 5G infrastructure.
With the 5G SA version, the operator transitions to both 5G New Radio (NR) and 5G as the core network. In other words, the 5G SA transition version, which does not rely on LTE, allows an operator to address features beyond enhanced mobile broadband.
These features include network slicing, which allows the creation of multiple virtual networks atop a shared physical infrastructure. Using network slicing, service providers can customize services for customers drawing from a pool of virtual and physical resources. 5G systems are expected to be made for logical network slicing, enabling operators to offer networks on an as-a-service basis and meet the needs of various use cases.
Why Should Businesses Care?
Globally, the number of 5G users worldwide is foreseen to explode from less than 200 million in 2019 to more than a billion in 2023.
Speedy 5G is predicted to reach 45% population coverage and 1.9 billion subscriptions by 2024, making it the fastest generation ever to be rolled out on a global scale.
Between now and 2025, the networking industry will invest about $1 trillion worldwide on 5G, supporting rapid global adoption of mobile, edge, and embedded devices in practically every sphere of our lives.
A 5G economy study found that 5G’s full economic effect should be realized by 2035 and support a diversified range of industries that could produce $12 trillion worth of goods and services.
This study also reports that the 5G value chain (OEMs, operators, content creators, app developers and consumers) could alone generate up to $3.5 trillion in overall aggregate revenue by 2035 and support up to 22 million jobs, or more than one job for every person in Beijing, China.
