In the era of smart devices and 4G network, the enhancement of the network technology is already taking place and 5G is preparing to hit the network straight having enhanced features.

No doubt that on hearing an interesting word like “5G Networks”, everyone gets eager to know about it. So let us discuss 5G networks and understand what exactly is it? The “G” in 3G, 4G, and 5G abbreviations actually stands for “generation”, hence 5G will be “Fifth Generation” of wireless network technology.


Basically, the concept of introducing new generation is to improvise the current network and innovate using the latest technology, research, and inventions. 5G promises that it will be faster, smarter and less power-hungry than its precedent 4G. AS a result of improved connectivity we will see faster smartphones, more smart-home devices, and longer-lasting wearable gizmos. Some of the countries like US, Japan, South Korea, Sweden, and Turkey are all set to launch this network in 2020.

According to industry experts, this updated network will give your phone a speedier connection which is about 10 times faster than 4G. For example: With 5G you can download an “8K” video or download a 3D movie in 30 seconds but on 4G, it would take six minutes.

Compared to current 4G network 5G is more focused towards “Connected homes”. With 5G many devices like sensors, thermostats, cars, robots, air conditioning systems will be easy to connect, provided it has the better bandwidth to transmit data across the variety of devices.

With an exponential increase in the demand of the users, 4G will now be easily replaced with 5G with an advanced access technology named Beam Division Multiple Access (BDMA).
