The fifth generation .. Technology that is late to appear
The fifth generation of networks will be the next wave of wireless Technology, but it may take some time.
The area of smartphones is going through a rather dull period, and most of the improvements to smartphone operating systems in the early years have stopped. Both IOS and Android have become necessarily equal.
“Mobile networks are now fast enough to accomplish most of the tasks we want most of the time,” said Alexis C. Madrigal, in his report published in the Atlantic magazine.
The real technological leap – the emergence of fifth-generation networks – is supposed to take place in the next few years. The fifth generation network is the name that the wireless industry has launched on the new set of systems that will make Internet telephony connected via wired fiber, Instead of a bandwidth of up to 10 or 20 megabits per second, this Technology could enable you to get 200 or even 500 Mbps, which is enough to broadcast a 4K video accurately.
The fifth generation represents the future of the use of smartphones, and the essence of the enormous conflict between the world’s largest handset manufacturers.
This new Technology can give all governments and “hackers” new frightening capabilities. The world most connected to the Internet is also a more controllable and penetrating world. The fifth generation network is supposed to provide real services to people later this year at the earliest, By 2020 or 2021.
Last week, a new Internet network from AT & T appeared as its 5GE code, and the US company said on its website that it was “our first step on our way to the fifth generation.”
The 5GE does not represent the fifth generation but is a renaming of the current 4G LTE that the company has set up to achieve the fifth generation. These updates enabled AT & Outperforming Verizon, which has been in the lead for the last half-decade.
Although some of the fifth generation networks will be based on the current structure of the highly developed LTE network, the fourth and fifth generations are different.
A consortium of wireless companies around the world has worked on five-generation technology standards for years before reaching a range of business agreements.
According to these companies, no technology should be labeled as a fifth generation but only those that meet all these standards. More importantly, the real fifth generation network requires the use of new parts of the spectrum that provide a huge new bandwidth and do not cause any delay in the network response time.
The provision of this new capability will contribute to the opening of wide horizons in the field of wireless Internet.
“There are more challenges for service providers because they need to understand how signals can react and move in different environments,” said Marco Tavainenin, a veteran radio expert and head of industry development at KeyCite Technologies.
Moreover, the speed of the fifth generation requires the use of higher-frequency signals and short-wavelength waves. The shorter the wavelength, the higher the probability that these signals will be blocked because of the obstacles they may encounter. A tree, for example, can affect the quality of the signal received by the user is found between the antenna and the smartphone, which means that the usual rules are no longer valid anymore.
Because of this type of problem, the telecoms companies will need a more dense network of base stations to achieve good coverage already, but the most challenging thing is how to do it.
But even after the fifth-generation network is ready, it will still be unclear how users will deal with a system that fasts. “The 4G network already offers a very user-friendly user experience today,” Twavienen said.
This change is somewhat like the evolution of the TV. Leaping from a standard TV to 1080p is a huge step, but moving from 1080p to 4K is just a good change, but not a big deal.
Almost all mobile phone companies – led by Qualcomm and Huawei – are pushing to accelerate the deployment of Technology in a single coordinated wave, because companies must provide the high speed and efficiency of the fifth generation, and if it succeeds in creating the network without collecting enough users will not be able to recover However, if the system does not live up to consumers’ expectations, its competitors may take away market share, and users may suffer terrible service.
The future of every major handset manufacturer, equipment manufacturer, and telecommunications company – along with many other companies – is dependent on the changes that the fifth generation network will see later.
The next year is expected to see a huge boom in marketing and journalism in terms of the new standard, but for the moment, if you notice a 5G network on your phone, you know that it is closer to being a harbinger of effective Technology.
