5G is the fifth generation of wireless communication technologies and standards.
The main features of this development are a higher speed than the current one, more capacity to respond to the increase in connected devices and a decrease in latency. This means that interactions could be almost instantaneous.
5G will not only change the way humans communicate, but will also change the way we communicate everything. 5G will connect the physical world (e.g., vehicles, ships, buildings, meters, machines, factories, medical devices, and other items) through electronics, software, sensors, and the cloud.
5G will allow the massive development and use of the Internet of Things ( IoT ), as well as the smart and connected vehicle, and smart cities, thanks to the huge bandwidth and high connection density.
Crowds at sporting events and events have always collapsed and rendered the 4G network unusable. 5G will also provide connection in these high-density connection situations.
Currently, the large number of 4G base stations needed to service a territory means high energy consumption. 5G will optimize this power consumption through radio-level optimizations and virtualization techniques that will turn off stations when they are not active.
Low latency, less than a thousand second, it will allow you to control in real time devices located many kilometers away, such as vehicles or medical equipment.
The 5G will allow you to obtain very stable and secure connections, necessary for operate critical critical equipment and infrastructure remotely.
