5G Network Mind Map – The Expectation of Future TechnologyNancy
From 1G to 4G, the development of telecommunication in recent 40 years has offered great convenience to our daily life. In recent years, the 5G network has become a hot topic. What will it bring to us? Today, we gonna explore more about the topic by using a timeline and a 5G network mind map. Let’s start right now!
What is the 5G Network?
You may ask about the meaning of the letter abbreviation G. In fact, it refers to “generation”. The 1G era of telecommunication was based on voice calls. As the development technology, 2G, 3G, and 4G came one after another so we can easily send text messages, check out pictures and watch videos.
The Development of the 5G Network
So far, many countries and international enterprises, such as HUAWEI from China, SAMSUNG from Korea, and AT&T from the U.S.A., have joined the 5G network technology development competition. Listed below are the milestones during the development of 5G network (click on it to enlarge):
Key Features & Applications
Fast Transfer Rate
5G network has ultra-fast data transfer speed on your smart devices. In theory, the normal download speed of 5G network is 10Gb/s (equivalent to 1.25GB/s), which is about 100 times faster speed than 4G. Therefore, you may only need a few seconds to download a couple of high-quality (HD) movie online.
Integrated with Intelligent Equipment
The greatest improvement for the 5G network seems to be its great integration with smart devices including mobiles, tablets, wearable devices, smart home devices, virtual reality (VR) devices and many more.
Used for Public Facilities
The 5G network can also be used for infrastructure in many different fields, for example, the urban guidance monitoring, the ultra-high definition social media live broadcasting, the urban safety inspection, the wireless medical (remote diagnosis, real-time monitoring of patients etc.), and so on.
There are also some challenges in the operation of the 5G network. Countries need to formulate a series of regulations and policies to effectively monitor national telecommunication networks. For instance, the establishment of formal operating licenses; the formulation of anti-monopoly laws for large enterprises; and the regulation of technical operability standards, etc.
