5G IoT: Four Smart Scenarios
2G, 3G, 4G, 5G: it's understandable to hear the term "5G" and momentarily think that it’s basically a faster version of LTE or 4G. After all, the numbers are sequential and it is the next generation in this family of wireless technology. The truth is, 5G is nothing like the generations that came before it. The sheer volume of data that 5G renders possible is difficult to conceive and nearly impossible to visualize. So, let's dive in to a few smart scenarios of this up-and-coming game-changing technology.
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.
