TOP TOWERS rooftop management & communication solutions
Technology is not slowing down anytime soon and the demand is only growing for more speed, data and bandwidth. People are using more wireless devises at work, play, school and at home.
What can 5G do?And when will it be available? When 5G is available it's not just going to be a faster wireless technology; it’s likely to empower new uses of technology that most aren’t even aware of today. (Thinkstock) The fifth generation of wireless transmission technology, known as 5G, is one of the more interesting developments on the technology landscape because of its wide-ranging implications. It’s not just going to be a faster wireless technology; it’s likely to empower new uses of technology that most people aren’t even aware of today.
How fast is 5G? A typical example that’s being used to demonstrate the potential uses is that a full-length, high-definition movie can be downloaded in seconds rather than minutes. While 5G is designed to be at least four to five times faster than 4G, there’s much more to the technology than just speed. Lower latency — which will make it more responsive — along with greater capacity will allow more devices to connect to the same cell, which typically chokes down speeds on 4G cell sites. With more people installing smart devices in their homes along, with the explosion of Internet of Things devices, smart cities and driverless cars, this additional capacity will allow this huge new load of connected devices to be manageable. Expect everything that you access via your smartphone to become more instantaneous as this technology rolls out.
Traffic from wireless and mobile devices will account for more than 63 percent of total IP traffic by 2021
Globally, mobile data traffic will increase sevenfold between 2016 and 2021.
Global mobile data traffic will grow twice as fast as fixed IP traffic from 2016 to 2021.
