5G is the 5th generation mobile network. In the last two decades we’ve had seen the launch of 3G, 4G technologies this new generation mobile network also brings an improvement to the past generation mobile network. It is a new global wireless standard mobile network after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks.
Commercial 5G networks are live across the world. Ericsson plays a key role in making this happen since the very start of the mobile network
current 4G networks won’t be able to keep up our needs The world’s connectivity needs are changing and Global mobile data traffic is expected to multiply by 5 before the end of 2024 mainly in dense urban areas.
How we got here
- 1G: Mobile voice calls
- 2G: Mobile voice calls and SMS
- 3G: Mobile web browsing
- 4G: Mobile video consumption and higher data speed
- 5G: Technology to serve consumers and digitalization of industries.
5G will improve your network connection dramatically. You won’t have to see the buffering in your screen it means you will get More efficient capabilities and vastly increased capacity ever before 5G is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds with ultra-low latency. This is what gamers waiting for new technology promising to bring ultra-low latency.
How is 5G better than 4G?
- 5G is significantly faster than 4G
- 5G has more capacity than 4G
- 5G has significantly lower latency than 4G
- 5G is a unified platform that is more capable than 4G
- 5G uses spectrum better than 4G
How Fast is 5G Compared to 4G
5G is faster than 4G, it is capable of delivering up to 20 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) peak data rates and 100+ Megabits-per-second (Mbps) average data rates and designed to support a 100x increase in traffic capacity and network efficiency. when it comes to latency 5G brings with 10x decrease in end-to-end latency down to 1ms
