South Korea to launch world’s first national 5G networks

South Korea launches the world’s first fully-fledged 5G mobile networks on March 29. This is a breakthrough in the use of a frontier and transformational technology. Thus South Korea has claimed to put first claim on control of an innovation that could potentially change the day-to-day lives of billions of people. The superfast communications heralded by fifth-generation wireless technology will ultimately underpin everything from toasters to telephones; from electric cars to power grids.  Although South has claimed first advantage in launching 5G Mobile, there are other competitors trying hard to take the lead including the United States and China (especially its telecom giants including Huawei).

The system will bring smartphones near-instantaneous connectivity — 20 times faster than the existing 4G — allowing users to download entire movies in less than a second. In much of the world – including the US and UK – we will see 5G networks launch in 2019. They’ll be faster than 4G, but you won’t be able to utilize the new speeds with your current handset. You’ll need a 5G phone. However, the majority of phoneslaunching in the near future won’t support the fifth generation network.

What is 5G and its advantages?

Fifth-generation wireless (5G) is the latest iteration of cellular technology, engineered to greatly increase the speed and responsiveness of wireless networks. 5G will also enable a sharp increase in the amount of data transmitted over wireless systems due to more available bandwidth and advanced antenna technology. In the same way that 3G enabled widespread mobile web access and 4G made new applications work ranging from social media to Uber, 5G will herald a new level of connectivity, empowered by speed. Technically speaking, 5G is the next generation of broadband connection.  With any type of 5G connection, you’ll see faster network speeds, but the biggest changes will happen when carriers have all deployed high-frequency millimeter wave technology to tap radio wavelengths that have been unusable in the past. I n current development, 5G is reaching speeds that are twenty times faster than 4GLTE. 4G LTE has a peak speed of 1GB per second; 5G is able to achieve speeds of 20GB per second. … More likely, you’ll get 100MB per second of everyday speeds, whereas 4G currently only offers 10MB per second in everyday speeds. 5G will have Improved precision. 5G uses unique radio frequencies that are higher and more directional than those used by 4G. The directionality of 5G is important because 4G towers send data all over, which can waste power and energy and ultimately weaken access to the internet.
