5G, also known as the fifth-generation mobile communication technology, is another improvement in communication technology after 4G. It is expected that in the future, the transmission rate of 5G networks can reach up to 10Gbps, which means that mobile phone users can download a high-definition movie less than one second with hardware performance conditions.
From the UE of the majority of users, whether it is video and audio, or application downloads, etc., the most intuitive experience brought by 5G is "fast." However, compared to 4G, 5G is there to bring faster and more stable data transmission, what changes are there behind it?
Unlike 4G, 3G, and 2G, 5G is not a single wireless access technology, but a true converged network. The 5G network can transmit up to 10Gbps, but this value cannot be achieved in most cases. Although this theoretical value does not seem to be so reliable, the 5G minimum transmission rate standard will give you peace of mind.
The frequency band used by 5G is much higher than 4G, which results in greatly reduced transmission coverage of 5G single base stations. Therefore, 5G needs more dense networking and more base stations.
Under the premise of high frequency, in order to reduce the cost pressure on coverage, 5G must find a new way out. In order to solve this problem, micro base stations have emerged. Compared to past base stations, micro base stations are much smaller in size and can be easily built. It is foreseeable that in the near future, micro base stations will be everywhere around us.
In fact, the faster transmission rate is only one feature of 5G technology. Compared with 4G networks, 5G networks not only have higher transmission rates, but also exhibit low latency, high reliability, and low power consumption in transmission.
For now, 5G is a long-term phase of commercialization, and 2019 is the pre-commercial year of 5G, and by 2020, 5G will really begin commercialization. So what changes will 5G bring to our lives? Let us look forward to it together.
