What is 5G and why should we be concerned...
5G will elevate the mobile network to not only interconnect people, but also interconnect and control machines, objects, and devices. It will enhance today’s mobile broadband services and will also expand mobile networks to support a vast diversity of devices and services. It will connect new industries with improved performance and efficiency. Not only will 5G improve your cell phone connection and give you faster download times, it is also the technology that allows for driverless cars, SMART devices to “talk” to each other, and it is the technology that will control the operations of the SMART cities of the very near future.
5G will be added to the current 4G infrastructure. They will work in tandem together. The main advantage that 5G offers over 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) is faster speeds. Primarily because there will be more spectrum available for 5G and it uses more advanced radio technology. It will also deliver much lower latency than 4G which enables new applications in the “Internet of Things” space. 5G requires millimeter wave high frequency bands. These mm wave frequencies travel short distances and can easily be blocked by such things as buildings and trees. While 4G LTE relies upon relatively few large masts that are built miles apart, 5G will require lots of “small cells” much closer together. These mini 5G base stations will be placed approximately every 500 feet in urban areas and neighborhoods. They will be placed on top of streetlights, utility poles, and on the sides & tops of buildings. They are being placed in front of homes, parks, and schools.
