4G versus 5G – A paradigm shift in mobile communications?
Although 4G / LTE networks are yet to have full global coverage, 5G technology is already advancing. The first 5G radio masts have been installed across multiple countries, ready to supply the world with a new high-speed network. However, what is the difference between 4G vs 5G and can the 5G standard meet its own requirements? To really understand 4G vs 5G we must take a look at the core of 5G and make necessary comparisons with 4G.
What is 5G IoT and how will it change connectivity?
This new technology standard promises much more than just further developments of existing mobile communication technologies. Comprehensive changes in digitalization, society and the economy will take place in almost all areas of life. So far, the primary aim has been to expand the infrastructural conditions of conventional networks across the board, in order to ensure network availability for almost all mobile devices. In the coming years, in addition to the continued networking within the 5G IoT, the focus will be on meeting the growing needs of the networked society even more optimally than before.
An Introduction to 5G Spectrum and Service Grades
Connectivity has been the ultimate enabler of Industry 4.0, and in fact, it is at the heart of it. Secure wireless communication has empowered factory automation, large-scale production, and improved safety. Businesses require a different set of network performance parameter for their device connectivity in terms of throughput, transmission delay, packet loss, etc. Due to various functional requirements and use cases, the one-size-fits-all approach employed in 2G, 3G, and 4G, is not suited for a wide variety of applications. Therefore, connectivity service providers (CSPs) must tailor their network services based on the precise requirements of any given application, device, and user. 5G provides a multi-layer spectrum approach needed to address various 5G network service categories known as service grades.
