5G Wireless Crash Course

Even though 5G hasn’t come close to realizing its potential, all four wireless carriers have finally flipped the switch on 5G in the U.S.

So were are we in the 5G evolution?

You can now buy 5G phones and take advantage of faster speeds and lower latency on those networks, which are faster than previous generations of wireless, but no where near what’s coming as wireless carriers continue to build out their 5G infrastructures over the next several years.

5G Latest News:

  • T-Mobile announced that it will be adding another 5G-ready phone to its line – the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren. This will run on T-Mobile’s 600MHz bands, which are better at penetrating physical obstructions and traveling greater distances than some of the other carriers, but generally has slower download speeds.
  • Verizon has added additional 5G markets: Omaha, Nebraska and Dallas. This brings the total in Verizon’s 5G network to 15 markets, including New York. Verizon’s 5G license allows the company to provide faster speeds but users could have issues with penetration and a shorter distance coverage that T-Mobile.

As 5G technology rolls out across the U.S., advanced architectures roll out with it.

One of those architectures is called device-to-device (D2D) communications, which  refers to the communication between devices, which can be cellphones or vehicles. This technique opens new device-centric communication that often requires no direct communication with the network infrastructure.

This is good because D2D architecture is expected to solve at least part of the network capacity issue as 5G promises more devices to be connected in faster, more reliable networks.

The difference 5G and D2D makes is significant. Take autonomous vehicles. Dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) is often tied with 802.11p, which is the Wi-Fi standard specific to the automotive industry that has led the next generation of connected cars.

Overall, the big jump to 5G cellular networks represents a technological evolution. 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.

5G also promises to 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 meet the demands for an increasingly digital lifestyle, and focuses 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.

One thing for certain, continual training in 5G wireless technology is essential for those who need to stay current in this fast moving 5G adventure..
