What is 5G Wireless Technology and How is 5G Network Different from 4G?

5G wireless technology is the latest communication technology for smartphones that was launched in April 2019. 5G networks are widely believed to be faster, smarter and more efficient than 4G networksCell towers equipped with 5G technology will have a capacity of over 4G / LTE. The 5G network will be available in most areas of the world by the end of 2020. In this article, we will tell you what are the benefits of 5G wireless technology and how is 5G network different from 4G? Let's start!

What is 5G Wireless Technology and How is 5G Technology Different from 4G?

What is 5G Wireless Technology?

The fifth-generation cellular networks technology (5G wireless technology) is the latest communication technology for smartphones, which is hundreds of times faster than its 4G predecessor.

5G Wireless Technology was launched in April 2019 after a number of telecommunications companies producing phones and processors, especially Huawei, Samsung, and Qualcomm USA announced their work to provide the appropriate ground for operating 5G technology. Some mobile phones that support 5G networks are:

Huawei Mate X, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, OnePlus7 or OnePlus 7T, Motorola Z3, Sony 5G Prototype, LG V50 THINQ, ZTE Axon 10 Pro Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, etc.

We cannot deny our joy after the launch of 4G technology and the high speed of the 4G network on mobile internet is around 10-15 MB. However, we can download applications quickly and watch videos without stopping. 
This will be amazing in 5G technology because of the speed it provides, reaches 1GB which is much faster that of 4G technology. 
Therefore, you will notice the speed of downloading large files and watching videos on the phone in Full HD on YouTube without stopping.

Many requirements will be met in terms of hardware, especially the processor chip in smartphones, as well as developing the battery capacity. 
Everyone knows the huge amount of energy consumed by 4G, how to multiply the technology 100 times, which is 5G.
The question arises what are the benefits of 5G network? Is it related to the increase in speed - as 4G networks were distinguished from 3G - or is it more comprehensive than that?

What are the Advantages of 5G Technology?

The most prominent advantages of 5G network technology may include:
  • 5G networks have the potential to deliver speeds 100 times faster than our current 4G network.
  • 5G will contribute to connecting devices globally.
  • Browsing the internet is very, very fast.
  • 5G networks have very low latency that allows users to experience less delay when requesting data from a network.
  • 5G will be very important for the development of automatic control and robotics.
  • You can use internet calls like normal calls without cutting.
  • Downloading high-definition files and videos will take place in 2 seconds.
  • Companies will be forced to develop a very large capacity battery.
  • 5G will help to make successful self-driving cars and self-driving drones.
  • 5G will be available in most regions of the world by the end of 2020.

How 5G Network is Different from 4G?

5G networks are widely believed to be faster, smarter and more efficient than 4G networks. 
5G technology promises superfast speeds and an end to congestion and overcrowding. 
4G technology has technical limits on how much data 4G network can transfer quickly across spectrum blocks. 
One of the main differences between 5G and 4G is that 5G technology will eliminate this congestion and overcrowding problem.
It is expected that 5G technology will revolutionize mobile networking and create new economic opportunities for data-driven industries, infrastructure management and smart cities.
Overall, 5G has several advantages over 4G; Higher speeds, better efficiency, lower interference, low latency and capacity for a larger number of connected devices, as 5G uses new technologies, spectrum, and frequencies.
Now, we will show you 10 things where 5G networks are different from 4G:

1. 5G Powered Holographic Calls
The current 4G networks offer the possibility to make video calls, but with 5G networks, it will be possible to make holographic calls. This is what Vodafone has already succeeded, as it made a holographic call over 5G networks.

2. Digital Broadcasting at 8K Resolution
The 5G networks are characterized by their ability to broadcast video accurately 8K with ease without delay. 
This is because of the high speed that the most promising technology provides, as you can transfer the same amount of data in a short period of time. You can also transfer more data at the same time. 
The time required to broadcast 4K without delay in 4G networks is sufficient for 8K broadcasting in 5G networks.

3. Virtual Reality Game-Streaming
If we talk about video game live streaming, then the virtual reality game will be better in speed and accuracy with the 5G network as it provides much higher speed than the 4G network. This is not only for broadcasting games, but events and conferences broadcast via virtual reality technology will be better.

4. Event Broadcasting with VR Technology
While some modern technologies are still in the process of development, broadcasting of events with VR technology has started including sporting events, but for the lack of spread of virtual reality glasses, and the weakness of the current speeds, it takes time, but it is expected that the 5G networks will contribute to accelerating its spread.

5. Event Live Streaming or Conference Live Streaming
The live broadcast is not related to smartphones, rather the live broadcast on TV will be better than before. With current broadcast technology, companies are restricted at low speeds, and they are also restricted to large equipment such as Truck Simulator on Steam.

6. Smart Homes and Smart Cities
One of the most important areas awaiting the spread of 5G networks is the Internet of Things (IoT), which includes devices connected to the Internet, with which homes and cities will become smarter, including the ability to monitor pollution, traffic, pedestrian traffic, energy consumption, etc. in real-time.

7. Download Large Amounts of Data at a Glance
The ability of 5G networks to broadcast video at 8K resolution without delay means of course also its ability to download 8K video more quickly compared to 4G networks, and the same applies to various types of data, including games, data, and applications.

8. Live Streaming Games without Delay as if Stored on the Device
Gaming over the Internet via mobile devices is relatively slow, because of its dependence on the Internet speed, the slower the speed the game suffered from some delay but with the huge speeds provided by the 5G networks this will not happen, but you will be able to play as if the game is stored on your device.

9. 5G Technology can Improve Augmented Reality Technologies
Augmented reality technology is an emerging technology in recent years, however, it is still in the early stages, so 5G networks may change the future of this technology. With high speeds, a series of AR experiences can be provided with the best picture.

10. 5G Networks Will Drive the Adoption of Self-Driving Cars
5G networks may play an important role in the spread of self-driving cars, which must be able to exchange data with other cars and smart methods, to operate effectively,  which requires high internet speeds and this what 5G technology has promised.
